Well, you don’t hear that every day.
NASCAR news usually revolves around wins and losses, arguments between drivers, new team members, etc. etc.
However, NASCAR news about a possum is a first for me.
And that is exactly what the NASCAR legend is Dale Earnhardt Jr. discovered in the engine compartment of one of his delivered cars.
He shared the strange news on Twitter:
“The JRM teams unloaded the cars from Vegas today and found a possum in the engine bay of one of the cars.
This is no joke.”
And he means a live possum, which makes the situation that little bit scarier…
I’m just trying to figure out how the hell the possum got in there.
I mean seriously, did that creature sneak in there with the hood open and no one looking? Was the possum already in the tractor? I think that would be pretty hard to miss…
Nonetheless, it’s still a hell of a story for old Jr. to tell his buddies while pounding some Bud Heavies on a Saturday night.
