The poor little bunny—er, large jackrabbit—“came out of nowhere” and left a huge blood splatter all over the front end of Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race car in practice on Friday. While it wasn’t caught on the broadcast, Busch’s description of the events is pretty funny.

“He stopped and turned and we looked eye-to-eye and it was all over,” Busch explained.


Good to know the rabbit at least got one final look at the car that ran him over.

Reminder: don’t play in race traffic. It never ends well.
