A Turn For the Worse

I often make fun of NASCAR because, let’s face it, they really do just drive fast and turn left. A right turn here or there could detrimental to these guys if they are in a race car, go cart, bicycle or in Jimmie Johnson’s case, a golf cart. The Nextel Cup champion suffered a broken wrist when he was tossed from a golf cart at a charity golf tournament over the weekend.

"I was in a golf cart and the driver took a sharp turn," Johnson said in a team press release. "I wasn't holding on tight enough, landed awkwardly on the ground and heard a little pop.”

What kind “sharp turn” would catch a NASCAR champion off guard? Possibly a right turn, they are the devil to the men of the track. Just imagine the carnage that would result from throwing in a right turn in on these guys at Daytona?
