You always want to be close to the action at a sporting event, but a dog got a little too close for comfort during Bolivia's El Rally Codasur.

Trotting around a bend during the race, the pooch seems unaware that a race is even happening. But the high-pitched drone of the rally car soon alerts him, and the dog starts to bolt straight down the road as opposed to darting to the grassier area on the sides. Onlookers surely think the dog is doomed, but fate smiled upon this scene. An embankment in the track causes the rally car to soar over the dog, which, thankfully, stops running the moment the car flies overhead.

Next time, we hope this dog decides to just stick the spectators' seats.

Lucky dog has near-miss with rally car
If it weren't for a little embankment, this dog would've had a very different fate.
