Freakin’ Mr. Perfect Johnson with his five trophies and his perfect wife and his perfect beard—throwing him in traffic would kill two birds with one stone…

10. Originally, he wanted to throw a contract offer his way but now is glad he didn’t.

9. A piece of ‘mystery debris’ but, as is the bane of the networks, was unable to find any.

8. An invitation to a ‘after race party’.

7. A giant turkey leg like the one he had in his car but he’d be damned if he was gonna throw his own!

6. Hang out on the track and throw a few safety workers’ helmets as well.

5. A knuckle sandwich.

4. Just an example of what his employee, Danica was gonna do later in the race.

3. A one fingered salute with both hands but alas, his hands were full of helmet.

2. The beer can that had been rolling around for about a half hour between turns 1 and 2 before officials finally noticed it.

1. Some hot lead but realized too late that he had forgotten to fill out the Tennessee forms for a ‘temporary permit to carry!

‘Freakin’ Mr. Perfect Johnson did get thrown into traffic, just a mere week later by the 22 Car Driver.

Think that Speed Center mic holding doing pretty good replacement (for a drug relieved Dinger), driver reads the FS? I’m sure he does. Follows orders well too. i’d watch out though at Richmond, I hear Freakin’ Mr. Perfect is taking lessons from Danica. “Into the wall w/ the 22! @ Richmond”

That Top 10 was great.
