Top Ten Things to Say to Hurt a NASCAR Driver's Feelings

Mistie Bibbee · Tuesday November 1, 2005


10.  Dude, your uniform makes you look fat.

9.  Wow, you’re still racing?  I thought they forced drivers your age to retire.

8.  Hey, isn’t your nickname "Mr. Provisional"?

7.  You really think you are a racer?  Man, I could beat you in my grandmother’s Ford Escort.

6.  Is it true you know Dale Jr?  Could you get him to autograph this hat for me?

5.  I’ve had trips to the dentist that were less painful than watching you race.

4.  Wouldn’t you be better equiped to star in a demolition derby?

3.  Aren’t you Jimmie Johnson’s motorcoach driver?

2.  Geez man… did you take one to many hits to the wall at 190 mph?

1.  Autograph?  No, thanks.  I was just curious if I could borrow your Sharpie for a minute.
