Corey LaJoie learned one of his tricks from the best.
The NASCAR Cup Series driver referenced Lightning McQueen in revisiting the assistance he gave Bubba Wallace on Monday at Talladega Superspeedway in the Geico 500. Wallace had run out of fuel at one point in the race, and LaJoie offered a helping hand by pushing his car into pit row.
LaJoie made the connection to McQueen, one of the heroes of the “Cars” movie series, early Tuesday morning in a Facebook post, which you can see by clicking here.
“Learned it from Lightning??” LaJoie wrote.
LaJoie’s push was among the many highlights of an unforgettable day for Wallace, NASCAR and sports fans everywhere.
