Jamie McMurray, the double-decker bus and East L.A.
Daytona 500 winner was a little nervous about visiting parts of East L.A. on his tour of Los Angeles. King Taco in Boyle Heights was one of the stops on the tour. L.A. Live, the ESPN Zone and Staples Center were also on the tour.
Of all the places and things McMurray saw on his tour, he said the double-decker red bus was the most interesting part of the trip. It had trouble getting out of the King Taco parking lot. The back end was pinned to the street while backing out. Apparently there was too many people on the bus for it to back out without scraping the street.
After the bus was unloaded and reloaded, the tour ended back at City Hall where McMurray took a photo with the tour participants and officially ended his Daytona 500 media blitz.
Next up, the Auto Club 500 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana on Sunday, weather permitting.
