Smell ya later: Skunk gets loose in the Phoenix garage

The Phoenix International Raceway garage had an unusual (and potentially smelly) visitor on Sunday … a skunk.

Wow, a track skunk. That definitely is a first.

The big question: what should we call him? Our always entertaining friend @Nascarcasm launched the Twitter hashtag #NameTheTrackSkunk to try and solve this conundrum. There are just too many great ones to choose. 

You think a runaway skunk is bad? Take a look at what Aric Almirola came across during his stay in the desert. No thanks.
