Top Ten Things I Learned During the Daytona 500

Mistie Bibbee · Tuesday February 22, 2005

 

10. NASCAR doesn’t really like it when their honored guest calls the sport redneck.

9. Jeff Gordon has a totally awesome 1980’s vocabulary because he was "stoked" when he won the race.

8. Tony Stewart is "easily accessible" should Jimmie Johnson ever like to "talk" with him.

7. Scott Wimmer can roll a car when he’s sober too.

6. As Bobby Labonte learned, sometimes finishing 43rd isn’t that bad. (Well it’s not when you take home $319,889.)

5. Darrell Waltrip is the world’s biggest "Junebug" fan.

4. Scott Riggs knows how to drive a Cup car. When did that happen?

3. Huh… what…? Kevin Lepage does too.

2. Apparently DEI has one good engine. They gave it to JR for the 500.

1. It is possible for a show to have more commercials than the Superbowl.
