Evel Knievel's 25 Most Dangerous Jumps

11. 22 Cars

Date: September 1, 1972
Location: Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA
Successful Jump: No
Injuries Sustained: None

It's amazing how many times Knievel set up a row of a certain number of cars and came up one car short of clearing it. This was the most dangerous example. About a year after setting a personal record by jumping over 19 cars, he tried to jump over 22 cars and came oh-so-close to doing so, before crashing into a safety ramp near the 22nd car. Where's the safety in that!?
