WHEN BACK-UPS GO WRONG
Forget the shoes...I'm barefooting it.
We couldn't help but think of an old experience in backing up a car when we saw our old buddy Mark Carrier backing up driver Cory McClenathan. This one dates back to August of 2004 in Norwalk, Ohio.
(8-28-2004) - Imagine your crew guy runs out to back you up and finds out first hand how good the traction is. That's one driver encountered as his back-up man encountered a few problems. After losing a shoe, the crewman intially turned around to retrieve it only to lose his other one. After realizing he was fighting a losing battle, he abandoned the socks and finally says, "Screw it." He did it barefoot. We're just glad he didn't do a faceplant. It might have been heck trying to get his beard unstuck.
It's a safe bet to assume he won't be wearing loafers next time.
