According to Tacoma, Washington station KOMO 4, a man was driving his 1993 GMC "Astrovan" the wrong way around Pacific Raceways near Auburn, Washington when he collided with a guard rail on a straightaway, violently distributing his wanna-be racecar around the track in several pieces. For the record, we're not exactly sure what an "Astrovan" is, but our guess is they were referring to the Safari, GMC's rebadged version the Chevrolet Astro. Regardless, the man's dog riding shotgun was thankfully thrown free of the crash and emerged uninjured. His owner, thought to be an electrician working at the site earlier in the day, however, is seriously injured.

As entertaining as one might think it'd be to drive an ill-suited vehicle around a track, here's yet another reason why racing takes so much training!
