INDIANAPOLIS – A fumbled sandwich briefly left a NASCAR spotter in a pickle Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Tim Fedewa, the spotter for Kevin Harvick, radioed his team that NASCAR officials took his hard card after his sandwich fell off the roof of the track’s iconic pagoda during the first Cup Series practice.
“Send somebody up here,” Fedewa radioed. “They took my hard card. A sandwich fell off the roof, and they’re mad. It was my sandwich.”
A hard card is the seasonlong credential that allows access at NASCAR tracks. A NASCAR spokesperson later confirmed that Fedewa’s hard card had been returned, making for a happy ending to a lighthearted story.
“Hey listen, you’ve got to control your lunch,” analyst Steve Letarte quipped during the NASCAR on NBC broadcast.
