The Frontstretch: Top Ten Things That Make As Much Sense As Starting the Daytona 500 After 3pm Eastern by Jeff Meyer -- Wednesday February 18, 2009

Go to site navigation Go to article

10. The conception of Brian France in the first place (had to have been a “mistake”).

9. Goodyear unveiling their new line of condoms (maybe that is what happened with No. 10!).

Ask Kyle Busch what he thinks about lapped cars starting on the inside during restarts.

8. PETA.

7. Starting lapped cars up front on the inside on restarts now that we have the Lucky Dog.

6. Arguing who was at fault: Junior or Vickers.

5. Thinking Obama is this country’s Messiah (Anti-Christ, maybe…)

4. Larry McReynolds.

3. Believing the states of Kansas or California will ever make good on the IOUs they are sending out instead of state tax refunds (send THEM one if you owe!!!!)

2. NASCAR’s enforcement of any rule — not to mention the DOUBLE yellow line!

1. An epileptic frying bacon in the nude!

NA$CAR

Now
All we
Seriously
Care about is
Revenue

…that’s the reason for starting the Daytona 500 after 3PM or any late afternoon race for that matter.

I don’t read this to get your inane political/religious news. Stick to racing, you can only do one half-assed thing at a time.

I agree with Jeff – stick to racing. Like him or not, that’s the President of the United States you are insulting in #5. Show some respect.

Adding to the list, advice from my dad:

#165. Never fry bacon with your t-shirt off.

Jeff: By far the lamest Top 10 in recent memory. Stick to racing and spare us the politics please.

Those that say to respect the president now were probably the biggest critics of the previous president. Good thing we still have a reasonable facsimilie of freedom of speech which allows someone to make parodies.

I quit going to the Bud Shootout after they started running it at night. And I quit going to the truck race for the same reason. This year I didn’t even bother to go to Daytona. I go to Florida for sun and warmth, not to freeze my ass off.

Actually, a really good top ten! (a little humor folks) PLEASE!

I mean if you can watch NA$CRAP, you should be able to laugh at anything!

I quit reading these last year when they got out of hand. Not sure why I thought this year would be different. Maybe FOX news has a top 10 you can do over there.

Any reader is invited to formulate their own Top Ten at anytime and submit it to me for consideration for publishing. If it is published, it may be edited to some extent, just so you know.
Let’s see what you got!

PETA nonsense? Wow. Bet you’re glad you’re a human … the one animal that is CERTAIN to destroy the planet. Brilliant Jeff. Maybe your parents should have used a condom a little more .. and not the Goodyear brand.

Some people need to get grip. #5 was pretty much what the news media felt he was all campaign long.

Great and funny top 10 list. I appreciate number 5 and 8. Small minds have no sense of humor!
