For the first time in over one week, I turn on my computer, go to NASCAR.com and see the headline Waltrip not injured in crash with motorcycle in N.C. At first, I thought the amount of medicine I have consumed over the past week blurred my vision and I had to rub my eyes to make sure I wasn't reading a headline from 2007.
But no, it wasn't the delirium of being jacked up on Mucinex over the past week, this is real life. Mikey, who no longer has rookie stripes for off track wrecks collided his Lexus with with a Harley Davidson motorcycle on Wednesday evening. The motorcyclist was taken to Lake Norman Regional Center.
Waltrip passed the field sobriety test and was later given a Breathalyzer that registered at .06 (legal limit in NC is .08). Thankfully for him, he didn't go for the next drink.
I really like Mikey as a person. I have shared a few good laughs with the guy. It just seems to me like bad luck follows him like the plague.
