The Frontstretch Foto Funnies! Chicagoland, July 2010

Kurt Smith · Wednesday July 14, 2010


Editor’s Note: Frontstretch is proud to bring back the popular Foto Funnies! Every Wednesday, our Kurt Smith will take a handful of pictures from last weekend’s race and tell us what “really” happened in those Kodak moments. So, in honor of Saturday night’s race, here’s a few behind-the-scenes captions from what happened during the “David” vs. Goliath battle out in Illinois!

Just hours into fatherhood, Jimmie Johnson did not handle the lack of sleep well.

Worse than his wrecked racecar was the bump on Robby’s head, caused when his stretcher was wheeled headfirst into the ambulance parked steeply on Chicagoland’s banking.

Kevin Harvick finally learned not to run his mouth at his crew after they gave him the “Goodfellas” treatment.

“Yeah, Glen, I promise the crew chief position for the No. 88 will be available soon.”

Reutimann swung the can of Gatorade wildly in victory, until he was informed that the can actually contained a “sample.”

“NASCAR would like to congratulate you on your win…uh…what’s your name again?”
