Jimmie Johnson’s goofy clown wig … or perhaps that hideous beard.

10. The way NASCAR is saying they were ‘wrong,’ by doing away with the top 35 rule.

9. Kurt Busch running out of gas.

8. Watching someone on national television covering their heart with their left hand during the National Anthem.

7. The thought of Kurt Busch being a team pilot for some race team after this whole racing deal falls through

6. ISC blaming a quarterly loss of more than a million bucks on the track configuration at Bristol….oh wait…I guess it was the bad economy.

5. Any excuse they always give when the ratings are lower this year than last. (This week it was scheduling partly to blame. The race was run later in October last year)

4. Calling Brian France a ‘great orator.’

3. Not even hearing Michael Waltrip’s name during the entire race….well, except there at the end.

2. Dale, Jr threatening not to run at plate tracks

1. All of us misunderstanding or misconstruing Kurt Busch all these years!

Nothing would be funnier or more poetic than getting rid of the stupid ‘Chase’ and going back to a points championship that actually factors in all 36 races (gosh!).
