Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Wednesday April 26, 2006

 

Author’s Note: Last week, Becca Gladden listed the Top Ten Phrases non-NASCAR fans may misinterpret. This week’s list will revisit those Top Ten phrases and fill you in as to just what those people are thinking!

10. He’s got doughnuts on his car.
What the neighbors of the local Krispy Kreme manager say when he/she drives the company car home.

9. She’s plowing like a dump truck.
What your car is doing when you are the first one down a country road after a big snowfall.

8. He was called up to the Oval Office.
What happens to your congress person when the President really needs his/her support on some pending legislation.

7. NASCAR froze the field.
