    Copied and pasted from another forum:


    Joe Gibbs Racing driver Brad Coleman was testing a Gibbs NASCAR Sprint
    Cup Series car at Toyota Arizona Proving Grounds earlier this week and
    came onto the radio and told his crew something rather unusual.

    "Guys, I hit a coyote," Coleman said.

    Coleman was running close to 200 mph around the 10-mile test track
    when he saw the animal wander under the outside guardrail.

    "I'm in the middle of the corner, and I'm doing like 190," Coleman
    said Friday at Nashville Superspeedway before practicing his
    Nationwide Series car. "I'm just cruising. You run the high line
    there, because that's where the most banking is. It's the high-speed
    lane. There's just a guardrail there like on the freeway.

    "I see this thing, it must've been 100 feet in front of me, just jump
    out. Right when I saw it come out from under the guardrail, I was
    like, 'That's a coyote.'"

    "It just started smoking like crazy," Coleman said. "And it smelled
    terrible. I didn't see anything in the mirror, so I was like, 'I
    wonder where it went?' I said, 'Guys, I hit a coyote. I'm going to
    come in because I think it screwed up the radiator. I think it clogged
    up the grille a little bit.'"

    Frankly, at that speed I'm surprised it didn't do a lot more damage.

    I'm never complaining about moths on the windshield again.
