Coyote vs 190mph race car

Not for the faint of heart!!
You thought IMS was bad!!




The story:

Coyote Coleman
Joe Gibbs Racing driver Brad Coleman was testing a Gibbs NASCAR Sprint
Cup Series car at Toyota Arizona Proving Grounds earlier this week and
came onto the radio and told his crew something rather unusual.
"Guys, I hit a coyote," Coleman said.
Coleman was running close to 200 mph around the 10-mile test track when
he saw the animal wander under the outside guardrail.
"I'm in the middle of the corner, and I'm doing 190," Coleman said
Friday at Nashville Superspeedway before practicing his Nationwide
Series car.

"I'm just cruising. You run the high line there, because that's where the
most banking is. It's the high-speed lane. There's just a guardrail
there like on the freeway.
"I see this thing, it must've been 100 feet in front of me, just jump
out.
Right when I saw it come out from under the guardrail, I thought,
'That's a coyote.'"
"The engine started smoking like crazy," Coleman said. "And it smelled
terrible. I didn't see anything in the mirror, so I thought, 'I wonder
where the coyote went?' I said, 'Guys, I hit a coyote. I'm going to come
in because I think it screwed up the radiator. I think it clogged up the
grille a little bit.'"



You think a Boxster could have swerved?

Hell, I'd leave it there. That's one bad ass grill ornament, puts the chrome mustang, Dodge ram and Chevy bow-tie to shame.

Maybe send it to a taxidermist (sp) first. That would just stink!! Maybe its fords new secret test car, the coyote.
