Seeing Orange

Qualifying for a NASCAR Busch race can be tough enough. It doesn't help when a giant inflatable orange rolls onto the racetrack during your qualifying run. It happened to driver Todd Szegedy on Friday.

"I used to like orange juice. Now it almost killed me," Szegedy joked afterward. "I don't even live in Florida."

The orange belongs to orange juice producer Tropicana, the main sponsor for this weekends NASCAR races at Chicagoland Speedway. I don't think even a NASCAR driver could get a car insurance policy to cover runaway inflatable oranges, but I guess it's possible.
