Top Ten NASCAR Related Regrets

Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Tuesday August 1, 2006


10. Chip Ganassi to Jeff Gordon: “You're pretty good kid, but you ain't got what it takes to make it in Cup.”

9. Jeff Gordon: “What did you say your name was? Brooke? That's a lovely name.”

8. All the Rusty Wallace fans who bought all the No. 2 Miller Lite clothes. Wear it now, and they think you're a Kurt Busch fan!

7. Ditto, No. 5 Kellogg's clothes.

6. Any non-Californian attending a race at Fontana.

5. Any beer drinker attending a race at ANY ISC owned track. Bring your wallet, pal!

4. Shane Hmiel: "…here! Take this. It's burning my fingers!"

3. The savvy souvenir salesman who TWICE had the “Jimmie Johnson Nextel Champ” hats made before the end of the year. (Both times with the year on them, too! D’oh!)

2. The Fans: Watching what Brian France has done to the sport….er, excuse me, I mean “The Show.”

1. Eva Bryan-Busch: Learning how to say the words, “I do.”
