Helio Castroneves is a very lucky man.

The three-time Indianapolis 500 winner was practicing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday when his car slid into the wall and then flipped in the air before finally crashing back onto its wheels. Castroneves walked away from the car under his own power.

Cameras at the track and onboard the car captured the crash.
