NASCAR LEGEND THRILLED TO MEET DEAD DISCO QUEEN

'OMIGOD, DONNA SUMMER, YOU LOOK FANTASTIC ... considering you're dead!'
TMZ FRAMEGRAB

NASCAR legend Michael Waltrip gave that old "joke" about NASCAR fans being morons an epic fisting today when he mistook some random woman who looks like Donna Summer for Donna Summer. Who died two years ago. TMZ has the footage and it is cringeworthy, although not nearly as cringeworthy as that other white-guy-who-can't-tell-black-folk-apart incident. (I'm pretty sure that guy's dead now too. Or wishes he was.) Watch this video clip, below, in which Waltrip gleefully chirps: "Hi Donna how are you? Enjoy the races today, I love your music!” Moments later, he told team owner Richard Childress, “If you like Donna Summer, she’s right back there.” Awkward.
