NASCAR Driver Mashes Up Coyote At 190 MPH

Mashups are all the rage in music right now, or so I’m told. Artists like Girl Talk have taught us that all you have to do to become an instant musical millionaire is take two disparate styles of music, speed them up/slow them down, and play them at the same time. Bam! Mashup!

(The eternal struggle between Coyote and Roadrunner goes on)

This formula for instant success and street cred can be extrapolated to other areas of life as well. Sausage + flour + milk = bam! Delicious gravy mashup! Socks + shoes = bam! Comfortable feet mashup! And, of course, the old favorite: NASCAR car running at 190 miles per hour + coyote on track = bam! Motorized meat grinder mashup! Yes, that actually happened, and we’ve got proof. No word on whether either party found fame and fortune.

This incident happened several months ago, but the pictures have just started making their way around the internet this week. ALL LEFT TURNS put two and two together:

Not even Acme rocket-powered roller-skates could have saved this coyote. On June 5 SCENE DAILY reported that Joe Gibbs Racing driver Brad Coleman hit a coyote while driving 190 mph during testing at the Toyota Arizona Proving Grounds. Coleman saw the coyote from about 100 feet away. There was no time to react. This is how he described the carnage: “It just started smoking like crazy. And it smelled terrible. I didn’t see anything in the mirror, so I was like, ‘I wonder where it went?’” 

Yep, here’s where it went. We told you they were graphic.
