Bobby Labonte is accustomed to speeding around asphalt at about 215 miles per hour. In those trips, he’s always making a left turn.
On a Georgia turkey hunt, Labonte found out he needs to stick to left turns. A short right turn, mixed in with a little bottomland mud, left him stuck and spinning in the mire, rather than running and gunning on a hunt for his first long-beard. (We’ll get to both of those later.)
The 2000 NASCAR Champion, Labonte is best known as one of the top drivers on the NASCAR circuit. His success along with this brother, Terry, has made Labonte a household name in the world of racing.
Three days before he would saddle up his Toyota Camry for the Aaron’s Dream Weekend at Talledega Super Speedway, Labonte was a guest for Realtree’s “Driven to Hunt” show in nearby Georgia.
