Pheasant hits race car driver in head at 105 mph: ‘It felt like I was hit by a brick in the face’

That had to hurt.

A race car driver in England nearly got knocked out by a pheasant during a practice run in mid-June — and the camera attached to his Formula Four car captured the whole thing on film.

Tommy Foster, 17, had been practicing at the Croft circuit in North Yorkshire on June 14, and was returning to the pits when the incident occurred — although he was still traveling at around 105 miles per hour when the pheasant struck him in the side of the helmet.

“It felt like I was hit by a brick in the face,” Foster said, according to SWNS. “The visor buckled in but didn’t fracture.”

Foster said he’d actually seen animals on the tracks during his time as a junior Formula Four driver, but usually, he spots them from a distance. The pheasant was a different story.

“I didn’t even see it until it was inches away from my face. I had no time to react or avoid it,” he said.

“It felt like I was hit by a brick in the face,” said 17-year-old driver Tommy Foster. (SWNS)

Foster claims he likely would’ve sustained serious injury if not for the “good quality” helmet, as “Lots of drivers and karters wear lesser quality helmets and visors.”

Despite this, Foster needed medical officials to sign off on his condition before he was allowed to compete in the subsequent race two days later.

Foster had not suffered a concussion, they determined, and he ended up competing in the race. He finished fifth.

The young driver, from Cornwall, has been racing since he was 8. He plans on becoming a Formula One driver when he’s older, according to his spokesperson.

“We put him into a Formula Four car to show what he can do. He’s qualified pole and has consistently been in the top five,” the spokesperson said, per SWNS.

“But we’ve had some really bad luck this season, and this is the latest bit.”

Trump meets with ‘incredible’ Indy 500 winner Pagenaud, team owner Penske at White House

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Pagenaud Trump meets with 'incredible' Indy 500 winner Pagenaud, team owner Penske at White House fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/auto/attributes/racing fox news fnc/auto fnc Charles Creitz bdaf4a36-95b1-55a3-a24b-ca2c46c2b54a article

President Trump met with Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske and team owner Roger Penske Monday at the White House, congratulating them on their dramatic victory last month.

Trump called Pagenaud an “incredible racer,” and said he’s been a longtime friend of Penske – a businessman in the automotive industry involved in both IndyCar and NASCAR racing.

“It’s a great honor to introduce the winner of the Indianapolis 500, Simon Pagenaud,” Trump said. “He is an incredible racer.”

He continued, “I happened to be watching that one because my friend [Penske] is somewhat involved with racing.”

Trump noted Penske-owned cars have won 18 Indianapolis 500s, including Pagenaud’s last month.

SIMON PAGENAUD WINS INDIANAPOLIS 500 IN THRILLING FINISH

“This is an incredible machine,” the president added, pointing to Pagenaud’s neon green #22 Menards car.

“The job that Simon did, if you saw that, that was talent and it was a lot of courage – because I wouldn’t do it… even for that trophy.”

Pagenaud narrowly held off Alexander Rossi to take the checkered flag on May 26 in Indianapolis.

Trump noted Penske recently visited the White House to celebrate the 2018 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series championship of driver Joey Logano.

“I love NASCAR, because they endorsed me,” he said with a smile.

NASCAR SHAKES UP SEASON SCHEDULE, PLAYOFFS FOR 2020

Former NASCAR CEO Brian France endorsed Trump during the 2016 election. France’s uncle, Jim, has since taken the reins of the stock car racing organization.

Later, Pagenaud thanked Trump for the invitation and said it was a privilege to represent his home country, France, at the White House.

“As a Frenchman, it’s such an honor to represent my country here today, in the biggest race in the world. Especially, being invited to come to the White House with President Trump, is a phenomenal achievement,” he said, going on to give credit to Penske and his team.

Pagenaud offered Trump a helmet as a thank-you gift for the visit.

Penske also thanked Trump for the invitation and offered praise for Pagenaud, his team and the president himself.

Indianapolis street named after Mario Andretti to celebrate 50th anniversary of his Indy 500 win

Mario Andretti would either be the worst or best traffic planner, depending on your point of view.

The racing icon was honored in Indianapolis today by having a section of downtown street renamed Mario Andretti Drive as part of the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of his 1969 Indianapolis 500 win.

Mario got into a cherry picker to help put up the sign, which will hang at the corner of Washington and Meridian through the end of the month, with the Indy 500 scheduled for Sunday, May 26.

It’s not the first time a street has been renamed for Andretti. After his win at the 53rd running of the Great American Race, his then-hometown of Nazareth, Penn., changed the name of the street that he lived on to Victory Lane and renumbered the homes so that his would be 53.

MARIO ANDRETTI HAS A HILARIOUS TAKE ON MAKING ELECTRIC CARS LOUDER

But the 79-year-old speed demon isn’t content with just having his name on the Indianapolis street. He joked on Twitter that he’s “negotiating what the speed limit will be,” and that he “’brought a Sharpie” in case he doesn’t like what the current sign says.

For the record, the city council voted earlier this year to lower the speed limit downtown to 25 mph, which is just a little slower than Andretti is used to driving. He still gets behind the wheel of a custom two-seat Indycar to give thrill rides on certain that he told Fox News Autos are guaranteed to break 200 mph at Indy.

NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin was sickened by carbon monoxide fumes during this week’s Dover race, but said he’s fine and ready to go this weekend in Kansas.

“That kind of hampered the very end of the race for us but it certainly wasn’t the deciding factor if we raced good or bad,” Hamlin said Tuesday. “It was just a tough race in general. It’s one of the more physically grueling racetracks we go to anyway. Then you do something like that, it makes it even worse.”

NASCAR will pause the Coca-Cola 600 in the middle of the race on Memorial Day weekend for a moment of remembrance.

Charlotte Motor Speedway officials requested that the series make the gesture, which it did in 2009 when the Sunday race was moved to Memorial Day due to rain.

“So we asked can we do that again? Our sport is so prone to supporting the military and so prone to understanding what the Memorial Day is all about.”

Maybe it’s time to start calling him “Monday” Martin. Martin Truex Jr. won the NASCAR Gander RV 400 at Dover International Speedway on Monday, beating Alex Bowman to the finish line in the rain-delayed race.

The event was set to be run on Sunday until an incessant downpour forced it to be rescheduled for today. It’s the second time in a row that Truex won a Monday race at the track, the first coming in 2007, which was also his maiden win in the Cup series.

The win was the Joe Gibbs Racing driver’s second of the season. Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott, last week’s winner at Talladega, rounded out the top five.

JGR has seven wins in 11 races this season and has established itself as the team to beat. Truex, of Mayetta, New Jersey, has long considered Dover his home track and he crushed Bowman by 9.5 seconds after starting in the back of the field because of inspection issues.

Mario Andretti has a hilarious take on making electric cars louder

The electric racing series Formula E has been making a lot of noise in recent years, but only figuratively.

Westlake Legal Group noise-12 Mario Andretti has a hilarious take on making electric cars louder Gary Gastelu fox-news/auto/attributes/racing fox news fnc/auto fnc article 5697e23b-fc92-56f7-912f-1678e8aa1287

(Getty Images)

A frequent criticism from fans, and many who might otherwise be, is that the electric motors are too quiet. They only make about 80 decibels (db) of noise, which is barely louder than a typical car cruising down the street, compared to over 120 db for a contemporary Indy or Formula One car.

Considering the decibel scale is logarithmic, not linear, that difference is pretty huge. But racing legend Mario Andretti has suggested a solution, though it might not be feasible to implement.

Andretti tweeted a video clip that opens with what sounds like an approaching race car, but ends with a bit of a surprise as a scooter comes driving out of a garage with a man riding on the back making exhaust noises with a trombone.

This is actually a thing, and there are plenty of videos on YouTube of people trying it with all sorts of vehicles.

Unfortunately, Formula E cars are single-seaters, and it’s not a good idea to try to toot your own horn while you drive, so don’t expect to see the series adopt the suggestion.

Mario won’t have any complaints during the month of May, however, as he’ll be spending it at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway celebrating the 50th anniversary of is first and only win in the Great American Race.

Talladega Superspeedway tweeted a thread of photos inviting followers to tour the “post-apocalyptic wasteland” of garbage, NASCAR memorabilia and other burnt debris left behind by fans after Sunday’s Geico 500 race in Alabama.

Georgia native Chase Elliott zipped into the first place spot on the final lap in the GEICO 500 Sunday, achieving Chevrolet’s first victory of the season in the tenth race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

But the race was far from over for the clean-up crew at the racetrack. Beer cans, bananas, a bicycle seat and what appeared to be a bikini top littered the lawn around the raceway. One photo of a “College starter pack” showed a crushed beer can, a box of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a Pedialyte. Another post showed a picture of a sign rowdy fans turned upside-down.

Talladega Superspeedway posted photos showing burnt tents and skooters, an abandoned kiddy pool in a muddy puddle and even what appeared to be a “hot tub time machine.”

“Whoever brought this to North Park was feelin’ realllll optimistic,” the raceway wrote, poking fun at one image of a hairdryer that suggests a diehard fan wanted to style her –do race-side. Others came prepared to move in but conveniently left behind two televisions, a recliner chair, a pillow, some clothing and even a mayonnaise bottle.

Twiiter users replied to the raceway’s thread, saying the mess was “disgusting” and that those people “should be ashamed of themselves.” Meanwhile, the Talladega team remained a good sport about it, getting its frustration out online.

Brad Keselowski finished Sunday’s NASCAR race at Talladega in 13th place, but he was still very lucky.

During one pit stop, the #2 Ford Mustang driver lost control as he was entering pit road and sent his car into a 180-degree spin that happened to end in his stall.

Since he came to rest completely within the lines, it was deemed a legal stop and his crew didn’t miss a beat jumping over the wall to get him fuel and tires.

Keselowski then did a smoky half-donut to get heading in the right direction again and reentered the race.

Afterward, he tweeted his thanks to the crew for “adapting to overcome,” and said he felt “like an idiot,” but appreciated the cheers from the crowd as his team pulled off one of the most unusual pit stops the series has ever seen.
