Not sure if this happened to anyone. I hit a squirrel on track at Laguna Seca! I tried to avoid him, but it was pretty tough to miss it given where I was. Yes, it ran under the right front wheel. No it didn't make it as the track side workers verified he/she was done.

As it happened....

Little critter (looks like a Merriam's chipmunk - a west-coast chimpunk species endemic to the region where the track is located) was clearly an EV enthusiast and a fan of the Andretti hairpin. Sad to see him go.

Hahaha! I was at that event in my M2 and I saw a dead squirrel heading into t3. I thought your video would be of that one lol. For your situation, that's a much scarier place to see wildlife. Were you in the white or red model 3?
