    Hundreds Of Birds Kill Themselves Crashing Into NASCAR Hall of Fame

    Hundreds of birds launched themselves into the side of the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Tuesday night, killing themselves ... and the surreal scene was all caught on video.

    A woman in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina filmed the chaos ... saying for OVER AN HOUR -- birds continued to kill themselves by running into the building's windows.​

    Must have been on the other side of the building. I left that building a few minutes before midnight and didn't see a thing.

    but if you have a tire going down, it's going down and you can pit - so I'm guessing he just wanted to freeze the field with a yellow?

    That's the idea. If you pit alone under green, you're kind of screwed. If you pit under yellow you might lose a few spots but won't lose any laps.
