After seeing this driver’s performance at Daytona, who wouldn’t run for the safety of the infield grass?

10. Owwww! Those lugnuts hurt when they hit you in the hiney!

9. To avoid a non-attentive Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

8. Instead of “Drop and give me 20!” Coach Kerr says, “Sprint to the frontstretch and back!” after a subpar stop.

7. Because those Goodyears seem to do some craaaaazy things at the racetrack.

6. Political statement.

5. Well, something has to wake up those baffoons in the tower.

4. It’s a Tazmanian thing… you wouldn’t understand.

3. Team in pit stall next to the No. 47 had to pay up. Big time.

2. Adrenaline, man … ADRENALINE!!!!!

1. Because according to Joyce Julius, it earned Kingsford $1.2 million worth of on-air advertising.
