10. Dale thought the scheme of the Chase hats clashed with his Adidas stripes.

8. Jimmie wouldn’t let him touch his horseshoe.

7. Found out Mark Martin was using a two-headed coin when they flipped for the best car every week. Good thing Dale told Jimmie and Jeff so they could take all the best cars instead and make sure nobody won!
