With rain delaying the NASCAR Nextel Cup race on Monday at
Michigan International Speedway, Luke Cunnington decided to catch a
ride back to North Carolina with driver Kurt Busch on the Penske
Racing team's private jet.
Cunnington had just enough time to make it home for dinner and a
short night of sleep before dragging himself out of bed at 3:30
a.m. on Tuesday to catch a flight back to Michigan with Busch.
