Top Ten Ways A Driver Can Guarantee Losing His Ride

Mistie Bibbee · Tuesday July 19, 2005


10.  Halfway through a race, stop the car and demand a map.  Let your crew know you think you are lost because you’ve been driving in circles for the last 2 hours. 

9.  Tell NASCAR where they can stick their rule book - on national TV.

8.  Inform the media that your street car (a Yugo) is twice as fast as your race car.

7.  Refuse to use/promote your sponsor because you think it is poor quality.

6.  Set the teams’ goal each week to obtain a 43rd place finish because you feel anything else is just showing off.

5.  Just remember, licking your crew chief is bad.  It is not a sign of affection.   

4.  Hit on the team owner’s wife.

3.  Ask if you can wear pink satin stilettos with your uniform during each race.

2.  Park your car halfway through a race, and refuse to finish it because you had a craving for a hot dog and an ice cream cone.

1.  Hit on your team owner.
