NASCAR practice was proceeding normally enough on Friday at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Cars were testing out the new spoiler, getting close to 200 mph, when ... oh no! What's that in Turn 1?
The bird was eventually cleared off the track by workers, and racing resumed. (Hat tip: Stock Car Spin.)
The bird may have been terrified, or it may have been ticked off. Either way, it should be glad it got the opportunity to leave the track on its own terms ...
Back in July 2008 at Indy, Jeff Burton met a bird. It didn't go so well:
Hope you weren't eating anything when you watched that.
