The Frontstretch Foto Funnies! Indianapolis, July 2009

Kurt Smith · Wednesday July 29, 2009


Greetings, Frontstretch Readers! Some race we saw in Indianapolis, eh? And the one on Sunday wasn’t too bad either! Seriously folks, congratulations on a completely asterisk-free win for Jimmie Johnson, who this time had to win it with the green flag out! Meanwhile, Kurt Smith tells the story of the photos that captured it all…

“Uh, vanilla I guess Bob. But shouldn’t we be working on our qualifying setup?”

“You’re kidding me. THAT’s the speed limit sign? Since when are they done in crayon?!?”

Little Bobby’s only chance to see Jeff Gordon up close was ruined by a large happy birthday bed sheet, made by a lady fan who’d never met Gordon.

When Richard Petty allowed him to put the red light on top of the car, Kasey’s intensity level soared as he imagined himself fighting crime on the racetrack!

Unfortunately, Mark Martin’s best chance to win the Brickyard 400 was ruined when he fell for Jimmie’s old “point at the tire frantically” trick.

“Hmmph. Bar Hunger. Sure. How about Bar Making Your Crew Fix Your Crashed Car Every $&(*#!% Week?”

“Juicy Fruit?! Anyone got a putty knife?!”

“Mmmm, honey! Where’d the Juicy Fruit come from?”

“And if you look to your left, drivers, you can see the famous Indy Pagoda. Legend has it that the Goodyear executives were stashed away here for their safety following the 2008 race. Some say when no one is at the speedway, you can still hear their teeth chattering!”
