Formation of a tornado behind our vehicle

Outrunning a tornado in tornado alley....near Simla Colorado. This one storm produced over 20 tornadoes. Our storm chasing team had already witnessed many tornadoes on this day and we were driving passed this tornado warned storm to get on the other side of it when I noticed a funnel forming in the side mirror. I rolled down the window, grabbed my phone and snapped a picture as we were speeding away from it.
