D’oh! The only real surprise here is that it didn’t happen to Danica Patrick. NASCAR officials thought it would be fun to have a guy parachute into the Texas Motor Speedway in a ceremony prior to the NASCAR Spring Cup AAA 500. The only problem was the parachutist, resplendent in his Texas flag parachute, dented Kevin Harvick’s No. 29 (closer look here). The car had to be taken to the garage for repairs.

A weight used to hold down a corner of the parachute banged into the car.

 

Harvick finished ninth, in case you were wondering.
