CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The helmet that Robby Gordon threw at Michael Waltrip was temporarily pulled off the online auction site eBay on Wednesday after bidding exceeded $10 million.

The site ended the auction because it was unable to verify the legitimacy of the bids and because Gordon didn't have the proper documentation showing that he planned to donate the proceeds of the sale to charity, eBay spokesman Hani Durzy said.

The helmet was re-listed late Wednesday night with the assistance of AuctionCause, a company known for helping in fund-raising efforts with experience in prequalifying bidders."

Looks like Monty may be taking his bidding habits into the real world.=)

Ebay story releases do not include names therefore making it impossible for us to identify the user unless we watched whoever was bidding on that particular item while it was happening.
This is just a huge joke about a recent real life event with the word Monty stuck in a few times.
Laugh at it and get over it.

/me falls off chair laughing and donates 2p to the "get Monty out of real-life debt fund"
