It was a scary sight for the crowd at the 35th Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, when True Blood star Stephen Moyer's racecar flipped over during the qualifying rounds. Fans watched as Moyer's car slid into the side tire barrier, spun 360-degrees and landed on its back tires, as he approached his seventh lap of the celebrity race.
"I was getting quicker and quicker and quicker and I was braking later and later and later. It was total driver error," Moyer, 41, explained. "It was a surreal experience. It felt like a roller coaster ride when my car flipped."
The actor walked away from the crash without a scratch -- and even went on to win the race! Beating out other celebs including Brian Austin Green and Kevin Jonas, Anna Paquin's husband took home a check for $15,000, which he planned to donate to the charity Racing for Kids.
"I want to apologize to the rest of the drivers for ruining everyone's qualifying session, but I really wanted to get the money for the kids," Moyer told the Press Telegram.
