    Here’s a guy who needs Jack and Johnny as team members when he’s doing the Injury 500. He got 8 victims on this lap.

    A hot mid-summer day with temps above 90 and this drunk isn’t content to just destroy his own life. He needs to take others with him.

    Who’s next to die on the streets of Metro Detroit………YOU?
