We have made some boneheaded mistakes here at BangShift over the years but this literally beats all. Fox is the network carrying the 2014 Daytona 500 and due to the fact that it rained all day, they re-ran the broadcast of the 2013 race, which Jimmy Johnson won. Well, this confused lots of people including Fox themselves who were first to hit twitter that Jimmy Johnson had won the 2014 Daytona 500! This came as a great surprise to the fans huddling in bathrooms due to tornado warnings, other drivers, and Johnson himself. Wow. We’re guessing that someone has been thrown out of the press room on their backside, or that some network official will be missing a coffee chaser intern in the morning. Talk about a screw up of major proportions.
The first screen shot was sent to us by Bret Kepner via Facebook and the ones following were grabbed from the Twitter feeds of various drivers.
