NASCAR tracks apparently double as wildlife preserves.
Animals have become a common sight during events recently (remember the cat at Atlanta?) and a rabbit delayed the Camping World Truck Series practice on Wednesday at Bristol.
After NASCAR officials threw a caution flag because the rabbit was against one of the outside walls, track officials and safety workers attempted to try to catch it. It did not go well.
Upon realizing that circling the rabbit with numerous workers wasn’t going to work, metal buckets became part of the trapping equation. It too did not solve the rabbit problem. But at least provided us some entertainment.
The rabbi eventually made its way to the infield and practice was able to resume. The Truck Series races Wednesday night.
