[ A nine-car NASCAR pileup may have wrecked a vehicle sponsored by the Federal Communications Commission, but it gave the agency more mileage in advertising the imminent switch to digital TV signals, the FCC's chief said on Monday.

The FCC spent about $350,000 to sponsor the car in the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing event on Sunday, to advertise the TV signal switch mandated by U.S. lawmakers to free up airwaves for public users such as police and fire departments.

NASCAR driver David Gilliland accidentally crashed the car in the Arizona race.]

So Gilligans wreck was a good thing? Lol. He's either knocking drivers out or running on top of them trying to take off while still on top of them and setting fires!
