Here is why one of the best drivers like Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr was torched on live TV by a golf presenter.

In a 2019 video shared on YouTube, Golf presenter Teryn Gregson called out ‘A few of racing’s finest’ for their driving skills. During the ‘Good, Bad, and Unusual’ section of her reporting, Gregson shared a clip of the time when some NACAR drivers got ahold of some golf carts.
