The Georgia Dome was the scene of an “interesting” bike crash this past weekend. Raising money for charity, several NASCAR drivers had a straight away drag race. Winning the race against his fellow drivers, star driver Clint Bowyer had a tactical problem. Fast on the straight away meant that the experienced motocross driver also needed a place to land. Where to stop after beating his buddies for a good cause? He couldn’t make the turn after the straight away and ended up setting his course for a padded wall to stop. Thankfully, he was not injured and he drove NASCAR on Sunday. His twitter account says the bike is for sale … best offer. Hopefully, he will donate proceeds if the bike sells!!
The event at the Dome was a collaboration of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, FIM World Championship and NASCAR® creating what they deemed the “Monster Energy Supercross Holeshot Challenge.” Danica Patrick was on board for the evening, along with other stars of the riding and driving community. The athleticism of these racers is well known and even NASCAR drivers are in awe of their abilities. We expect this event to return next year, in case readers are interested in seeing this event as it happens live.
