It wasn't even a hellcat. Looks like an RT in the picture I saw. Lynch needs to step his game up.

Most NFL players aren't known for their driving skills... or smarts off the field. This is a perfect example.

I do feel bad for the car, though. Hate to see a new Z torn up like that.

Default Seattle Running Back(s) crash Z06

Depends who you ask: CNN says Jackson was driving too fast, crashed, and Marshwan Lynch stopped to check on him. TMZ says they were street racing (I don't follow TMZ, don't know how "accurate" they are).

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...after-practice

Black Z06 with NY plates, so likely Jackson's car (he came from the Bills).

Seems everyone is OK, car doesn't look totalled in the pics.

There is an ex NFL football player that post on this site who happens to be a pretty good road racer.

This is why people can't have Nice things. Jackson doesn't deserve a Corvette if he can't drive it properly.

It's a Z07 so it has cup tires. I bet the tires were cold. Yes he should be driving better but IMHO this is the sketchiest driving Z06 of the modern Z06s.

Best,
Gene

p.s. that's the only other black Z06/Z07 I've seen with grey calipers. The man has good taste!

I'm saving these for April's Fools. The car is an exact match to mine, Z07, black, tints, caliper color and hard to make out NY plate.

I think Lynch has the F-Type Jag. Here's a little video of the aftermath: http://m.tmz.com/#article/2015/10/20/marshawn-lynch-drag-race-fred-jackson/

Yeah, but you would hope he knows how to drive it... As far the car looks, I think it's crazy you and him have the same exterior look! I'm gonna be honest, I didn't know who Fred Jackson was until today, yet he plays for my local team. I know more about cars than anything else really. It's kinda funny though because most of my friends are surprised I know a lot about cars w/o taking auto maintenance (Im in HS for reference, and I have good grades so its not like I only study about cars). I taught myself everything I know about cars and that's pretty impressive to me at least.
