LOUDON, N.H. – Perhaps Martin Truex Jr. could have gotten away with parking his Toyota in Space 78 in the media lot at New Hampshire Motor Speedway but when Michael McDowell parked his rental there, the NASCAR media’s version of the parking police, a.k.a. Jim Utter, leapt into action.
Utter, who is somehow the most unfortunate media member on the circuit when it comes to people parking in his assigned spot, is no stranger to having parking scofflaws towed. It’s happened before at Darlington.
For Utter, it’s simple, it’s his space and he wants it, even if it is more than three hours before the race. Of course, tracks assign spaces for a reason and those reserved passes aren’t easy to come by, so no one can blame Utter for defending his turf.
