Nearly 10 months ago, Chase Elliott endured a harrowing snowboarding mishap that not only fractured the tibia in his left leg but also dashed his prospects for the 2023 season. The incident left an enduring impact on the talented Hendrick Motorsports driver, prompting him to take precautions against a recurrence. Despite Elliott’s significant setback, it appears that the specter of such incidents hasn’t deterred NASCAR icon Michael Waltrip from hitting the slopes. Yet, as soon as news of Waltrip’s visit to the hills spread, fans quickly took notice and felt compelled to issue warnings to the racing veteran.

Because of the brutal crash, Elliott missed a whopping 6 races during the 2023 season and got sidelined from the sport. In a similar trip, when fans noticed Waltrip engage in snowboarding, fans took center stage. Even though Waltrip is not racing anymore, his job as a NASCAR analyst for FOX Sports could be in jeopardy.
