Seahawks Drag Race

Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson was reportedly drag racing at the team's facility this week. Jackson was racing his black Corvette against a red Dodge Challenger, which belongs to an unknown driver. To make matters worse, Jackson lost control and smashed into a large planter box and a stop sign. Some of the first people on the scene were teammates Marshawn Lynch – driving a white Jaguar F-Type convertible – and Richard Sherman. It is not known if Lynch was actually involved in the racing.

Caitlyn Jenner's SUV Hits Deer

Jenner's SUV collided with a deer in Malibu, California, although she was not behind the wheel of her automobile. Her Escalade hit the animal near her home, but Caitlyn was out of town at the time visiting her mother. Someone who works for Jenner was driving the car with her permission, when the doe was struck. With her Escalade in the shop, Caitlyn is now driving her Porsche.

Ochocinco Doing Small Things

Chad Ochocinco (Johnson) has always had an over the top personality, but at least his car is humble. The former standout NFL wide receiver has been driving a Smart Car since 2007 and he just picked up a brand new 2016 model. The car is being customized at The Auto Firm in Miami, FL. Chad said that his car gets 55 miles per gallon and only costs $20 to fill up, which means he won't be begging for any teams to sign him anytime soon.
