There's apparently a new race on the NASCAR circuit: the Cemetery 500.
On Sunday, a woman tweeted video of a Dodge SUV driving through the gravesites of the Houston National Cemetery, presumably to avoid traffic.
According to Houston news station KPRC, witnesses said that she drove over dozens of headstones.
People had come to the cemetery to watch a the Lone Star Flight Museum's Fight to the Finish Flyover in celebration of VE Day.
While at Houston National Veterans Cemetery honoring my grandfather and watching the WWII aircraft flyover, this woman driving the red car drove over multiple gravestones trying to avoid traffic.

According to media reports, it's unclear whether the driver, who remains unidentified, was reported to police.
