You've got to be a special breed of cat to be a NASCAR pit crew member. A little fearlessness, a little derring-do, a little insanity all help. But one thing you can't have is a little stupidity, and Paul Menard's tire changer edged right up to that line in Saturday night's Capital City 400 in Richmond on Saturday night. Dedication is great, but dedication isn't much protection against a car speeding around a turn on pit road. Thankfully, the tire changer escaped any unwanted encounters with vehicles, but he couldn't escape the wrath of either the NASCAR official or his own crew chief, who threatened the job of anyone who did anything like that again.
Remember, folks: playing in traffic never ends well for anyone.
