Top Ten Signs You Are About to be a Victim of Silly Season

Mistie Bibbee · Tuesday July 26, 2005


10.  You show up for you Monday morning meeting at the shop- only to find out the shop has moved. 

9.  You turn on the TV and see another driver in a commercial promoting your sponsor.

8.  The race is in Daytona but for some reason the team plane insisted in dropping you off at the track in Kansas.

7.  You log on to your team’s official website and can not find any mention of your name.

6.  The last time the TNT/NBC crew interviewed you was 3 seasons ago, now they won’t leave you alone.

5.  Fans no longer boo you during driver intros.  All you see is shaking of heads and murmurs of “that poor boy”. 

4.  Your team owner asks you one day if you are any good at fabrication or engine building.

3.  The last time you attempted to use your company credit card, the cashier cut it up in front of you and said that your account had been canceled. 

2.  Your crew chief spends at least 50% of the race on the scanner telling you the advantages of the IRL.

1.  Strangely, your contract that your team owner has asked you to sign looks oddly like an employment application for McDonalds.
