Oh deer...

I'm jonesin' to get out on the track this year after I get married this weekend. I'll finally have the chance to not talk about wedding-related stuff for the first time in months! I probably won't make it to the track until August...but better late than never!

So I stumbled across this video in another forum...not sure if it's been posted before, but makes me realize as great as the track as, it can suck as well...scary stuff!

See y'all in August!

they both got off with little to no injuries
if that had happened on the street it might not have ended so well for them

100% agreed...would have been much worse news on the street.
