The Frontstretch Foto Funnies! Michigan, August 2009

Kurt Smith · Wednesday August 19, 2009


Greetings, race fans! The Michigan event came down to fuel mileage as usual, and once again, the weakness of the No. 48 car is exposed! Now, the other teams know just how the toppling of the three-time champ might be accomplished — as long as there’s no “phantom debris cautions” to break up those long green flag runs at the finish. In the meantime, we send congratulations Brian Vickers’ way for improving his chances not only of making the Chase, but getting a new contract after his trip to Victory Lane on Sunday!

Kurt Smith captures the stories from a busy weekend in these photos…

“I know what you’re thinking Rick, but Priuses aren’t going to solve our fuel mileage problem.”

The Red Bull team was particularly proud of the “red bull having its way with the wheel” paint scheme.

Crew chief Ryan Pemberton put his hand on Vickers’ shoulder after the victory, a signal to remind his driver not to mention his contract.

Kyle Busch attempted to cement his place in history with an Earnhardt-esque “pass on the apron,” but once again Brad Keselowski stole his thunder.

Race winner Brian Vickers attempts to temporarily halt the interview for some “Victory Flatulence.”

The stealth cameraman at the track was once again able to sneak in a shot for his “Nice Butts of NASCAR” collection.

After experiencing success with the double-file “Shootout Style” restarts, NASCAR is now experimenting with its new and much more exciting quintuple-file “Mexican Standoff Style” restarts!
