10. I may as well force the excitement back into Bristol.

9. Gonna start and park this No. 07 car in fine fashion.

Even if it was for only a brief moment, Friday night saw Chase Austin and the No. 07 car become the Most Popular Driver in NASCAR not named Dale Jr.

8. Just tryin’ to rattle his cage.

7. Maybe if I wreck a lot, Rusty will let me be Steve’s teammate again.

6. Wait … this isn’t my spotter’s channel!

5. I better take the earplugs with me from the car – I sure as hell don’t want to hear Kyle whine at me.

4. Let’s put Armando Fitz out of his financial misery.

3. I sure hate racing in these higher series and I need an excuse to get sent back.

2. What a nice night. I think I’ll just pull over and let the wind blow against my hand out the window while doing so.

1. If I wreck Kyle Busch, the fans will ordain me a Stock Car God.

Glad to see it doesn’t take much to make Joe W. happy and it’s good that NASCAR’s push for diversity is working and those drivers are gaining fans.

Jimbo just in case you didn’t get it. My first comment was a joke, but any time Kyle Busch gets taken out of a Nationwide race it does make me happy!!

Another blow for diversity.

Hey Joe W. , don’t worry , I got it. It’s just like why Jeremy Mayfield suddenly became my favorite driver a while back. But you have got to admit, what was going through Austin’s head when he pulled that bonehead move was evidently light and air.
