Two NASCAR planes trade paint at airport

Rubbin’ is racin’, even on the tarmac.

The Charlotte Observer reported that a Joe Gibbs Racing airplane bumped into a parked Stewart-Haas Racing one as NASCAR teams were returning (in style) from Sunday’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

No one was injured.

No one went to the NASCAR hauler and was docked 10 championship points.

And, for once, nobody tried to pin the blame on Jimmie Johnson.

In fact, that two airplanes had gotten together making slight contact made returning from Sunday’s race a whole lot more exciting than watching it on TV or from the half-empty Indy grandstands.
