What's happening in this picture?

I came accross this while looking at E36 pics, sorry if it's an old topic.

Might just be camera blur but it looks like this guy's rear wheel is flexing beyond recovery, is this possible??

When I said "beyond recovery" I didn't mean the rear end was breaking loose, the driver seems to be in control. I was just wondering if the wheel would be permanently damaged from that. It's hard (for me) to tell if he's carrying a lot of speed/high g forces, or if it's just a visual illusion.

it's probably too slow of a shutter speed and the wheel was moving pretty fast so it looks like it shifted or whatever.
