NASCAR reporter breaks his ankle while interviewing Dale Earnhardt Jr.

MRN reporter Dustin Long was interviewing Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Pocono Friday when a terrible accident temporarily derailed his weekend. Long fell off one of the scales that NASCAR uses to weigh cars and broke his ankle. Long posted a gruesome photo of the injury on his Twitter account.

Earnhardt took the blame for the accident, saying he led Long through the scales as a shortcut.

Ever hear the saying "break a leg" for good luck? Well Earnhardt went on to win Sunday.
