HyperFest, an annual event at the Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia, is day seemingly packed with just about everything you can do in a car or watch a car do, from road racing to drifting, off-roading and karting, as well as Hot Import Nights, a Rice-Rice Challenge and a rollover contest. And that's not even the half of it.

During one portion, James Greenwood was working his Chevrolet Corvette Z06 around the Summit Point circuit, heading down the start/finish straight at full bore. As he got near the braking zone for Turn One, a deer doubled back onto the track and quickly, sadly, discovered it was too late for either man or beast to take avoiding action.

Then, as if remodeling your car with a deer wasn't depressing enough, Greenwood said "the HyperFest emcee told ten thousand Hillbillians that I was responsible for the thirty minute Daisy Duke delay." Scroll down to see the incident in real time and slo-mo. Warning: the driver was all right, the deer was not, and while the impact isn't gory, it's not exactly, um, pleasant.

Even though Greenwood probably didn't have a snowball's chance of avoiding the impact, the video serves as a powerful reminder that whether you're on a closed course or on public roads, it's important to be vigilant about watching for local fauna, day or night.
