The Frontstretch Foto Funnies! Charlotte, May 2009

Kurt Smith · Thursday May 28, 2009


Well, another Coca-Cola 600 has come and gone, with David Reutimann’s surprise victory one of the feel-good stories of the year. But before we move on to Dover, we at the Frontstretch thought we’d analyze what’s really going on in the photos that captured a great May 2009 weekend at Charlotte!

“Well, looks like this is as good a place as any to pinch a loaf. Not like Fox ever watches me anyway.”

“Reut, the camera people and officials are all over the place. Please tell me your legs aren’t crossed because you just pinched a loaf on the other side of the car.”

“It’s so great watching Eury squirm. He falls for the Metamucil in the coffee trick every time. He’ll be too busy to get the 88 running well today!”

“Think I’m stupid? First Cuban driver in NASCAR gets a firesuit with a target on the front?”

“Anyone out there need a size EEEEEEEEEEEE shoehorn?”

“Don’t know how many times I told Harvick. DON’T try to pass on the rumble strips!”

“Jack it up some more, I can’t find my gum!”

“OK, car’s been weighed, no one’s looking. Time to remove the 60-pound wedding ring…”

“So busy with the big engine they walked right past my new super-sized tires. I love it when a plan comes together—top 35 here I come!”

“WHOA! Oh. That hat scared me honey. Thought you were Jack Roush for a second.”

“To celebrate the anniversary of the Atari classic, the cars will now circle the track in centipede formation for two laps!”
