Marsupial Hops On Track During Race
A brave marsupial just seemed to want a piece of the action over the weekend as it hopped on to a race track during a high-speed V8 Supercar race in Australia.
As cars racing hundreds of miles an hour roared all around it, the marsupial hopped down the middle of the track. Some drivers narrowly missed hitting it before the animal hopped over to the side.
Authorities said the marsupial escaped serious injury and returned to the wild and the race continued with no drivers hurt, either.
Just for the record, kangaroos can travel at speeds up to 30 mph (48 km/h).
