A picture from Danielle Muirragui shows the aftermath of a Thursday morning crash involving a yellow C6 Corvette Coupe and a silver 4-door sedan on Interstate 395 in Washington D.C.
Sometimes we forget just how unpredictable and dangerous racing can be.
Take, for example, this Corvette C6 ZR1 that was involved in a pitlane fire during the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship over the weekend.
Here was a scary incident at fall 2013 running of the Texas Mile. Buddy Schulz is the owner/driver of this C6 Corvette and earlier in the day he had posted runs nearly 180 mph. But it was his last run of the day that makes the news.
Our friend in Texas who originally provided us the video and photos has now requested that they be removed and we have done so. We apologize to our readers.

SAVE THE STINGRAYS!
Last night we learned about a strange incident at the Texas State Fair where a participant at the Chevy Ride and Drive event crashed into two Corvette Stingrays with the back of 2014 Impala. We now have some more details from someone that was at the event and saw the crash first hand and told us that isn’t entirely accurate.
We’re debuting a new tag tonight called “SAVE THE STINGRAYS”. We think it’s only proper given the fact that learned tonight about another two or three C7 Corvettes that were taken out in a case of Bow-tie on Bow-tie violence in Texas.
According to Jalopnik, things got interesting at the Chevy Ride and Drive event on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas State Fair after an unidentified driver in the 2014 Impala hit two or three 2014 Corvette Stingrays, damaging at least two of the C7s as well as the Impala.
