Watch A Deer Crash Into A Racing Corvette's Windshield

Illustration for article titled Watch A Deer Crash Into A Racing Corvette's Windshield

The annual Daisy Dukes Contest at this weekend's HyperFest at Summit Point in West Virginia was delayed after a driver in a Corvette collided with a deer that made the mistake of trying to outrun a Z06 across the track. Warning: Semi-Graphic Video.


What started out as a relaxing day at the track ended abruptly when a deer that got itself trapped inside the course tried to get out. The driver of the Corvette basically had no way of avoiding Bambi as it attempted to jump over the car but instead went crashing into the windshield, spraying the interior with bits of glass.

And it gets worse according to the driver of the Corvette:

Bad enough my car got smashed, but to add insult to injury the HyperFest emcee told ten thousand Hillbillians that I was responsible for the thirty minute Daisy Duke delay.


In case you were worried, it looks like the Daisy Dukes contest was eventually spared.

Sometimes, hitting a deer can't be avoided. When my Explorer was just a few months old, I was kinda racing on a mountain road. When going around a corner, a deer jumped out in front of me. I braked, but nailed him lightly anyway. I got a cracked grill and bumper, but it could have been much worse. That experience slowed down my mountain driving. It's not worth what could happen.
