Get a load of Bruce Jenner! Have you ever seen someone so happy after crashing a truck, let alone one that costs $500k? It looks like Bruce is handling the separation from his wife/manager/boss Kris pretty well. You know you're having a tough year in the press when the most positive story about you in months is about a truck crash.
Here's the half-a-million bucks that just got "Jenner'd":
Bruce and his son Burt were taking part in the Baja 1000, an off-road race through the Mexican desert, when Bruce drove their truck into a ditch at the 170-mile mark. Afterwards, Burt posted the smiling pic above to Instagram, along with the words:
Beat but not broken... Had to have a few beers before I could tell @pottsracing his #trophytruck would not be making it to him... #classyShot #YesThatsACathider
Bruce and his son both appeared happy to walk away from the wreck unscathed. Of course, it's a lot easier to smile when the wrecked truck worth a half-mil isn't yours. Also, the Mexican desert was probably a nice place to be during a week when the biggest story in the U.S. involved his stepdaughter's naked ass.
Well I don't want to say the race didn't go as planned, because it did... we had a blast, learned a ton about Baja, made a bunch of new friends who I will remember for life, didn't bend the truck (even though we went off twice) and we came home safe... in this picture is the group of people who helped us out in the middle of the desert when we broke the truck and offered us pizza and beer and radios... at this point after hours in the desert dad and I were starving, thirsty, and needed a radio to signal our race was over... they pretty much solved all or problems and made life good again. Big thanks to everyone especially @vinnycienta (the girl in the green beenie) for the much needed pizza! Your guys spirit and hospitality is why racers truly love Baja...
It's nice to see Bruce having a good time. And we should all be thankful that #YesThatsACathider didn't catch on.
