The video shows how one lucky (and fast) deer got away with its life at a recent Chumpcar event at Summit Point in West Virginia.
During the first stint of a 10-hour Chump Car endurance race at Summit Point, a miracle occurred when a young deer leaps out of the woods in front of three speeding cars traveling along the back straight three-wide at full speed. The moment happens so fast you might miss it if you blink. In the split-second at 1:24 in the video, its life should have ended right there as it nearly collided with the BMW on the left. Miraculously it missed it. Then the red BMW, number 186, should have hit it head-on, but inexplicably it missed, too, as the deer traveled between the BMW on the right and the Mazda RX7 camera car in the middle. The in-car camera footage shows the cars moving along at what appears to be wet-track speeds, but the track was extra greasy and the drivers had to tiptoe around the corners.
