This weekend, Nextel Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson took a spill from a golf cart and fractured his wrist in the process. The incident happened at a celebrity charity golf tournament in Lecanto, Florida.
In his official story he claimed that he "was in a golf cart and the driver took a sharp turn... I wasn't holding on tight enough, landed awkwardly on the ground and heard a little pop."
As it turns out, he was in fact ON the golf cart when that driver took a sharp turn. I guess golf cart driving isn't quite as exciting as NASCAR racing. Yep, "horsing around" on the roof of the cart, according to his team.
It kind of makes me think that driving a stock car must be relatively easy. I mean heck, I drive golf carts all the time and have never had a single incident. No crashes, no injuries, nothing. I bet if I had a huge corporate team behind me that designed a winning car, I could get strapped in to that baby with all the protective gear and drive that thing to victory! Need a sub in Paris, Jimmie?
