"Guys, I hit a coyote..."

  1. 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 like 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 was like,
    'That's a coyote.'"

    "It just started smoking like crazy," Coleman said. "And it smelled
    terrible. I didn't see anything in the mirror, so I was like, 'I wonder
    where it 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.'"
