Top Ten Reasons Kurt Busch’s Car Is Always Late For Pre-Race Inspection

_News broke this week that one of the reasons NASCAR officials “held” Kurt Busch’s car in pre-race inspection Sunday is the No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge had developed a history of being late. Well, after an unofficial Frontstretch investigation the Top Ten Posse has found some reasons behind this team’s “time management problem…”_

Could Chad Knaus have anything to do with why Kurt Busch’s team has been showing up late to inspection the last few weeks?

*10.* Asked Joe Menzer and Jenna Fryer for directions to the inspection line.

*9.* Blocked in stall by a giant, red Lowe’s pit box filled with Kobalt Tools.

*8.* Team given a 15-minute timeout for cussing once Kurt accidentally mistook an official for Steve Addington.

*7.* Lost in thought reading Chad Knaus’ setup book: “Coloring Around The Gray Area: Getting Away With Technical Murder Since 1996.”

*6.* New “Monkey F$@#%/g A Football” scheme deemed inappropriate.

*5.* Miller Lite bottles disguised as “lemonade” and handed out by Brad Keselowski during lunch.

*4.* Fending off TMZ after Kurt had his tongue down his girlfriend’s throat… before his divorce went public. Oh, wait… that actually happened. Awkward!

*3.* Kurt late getting off the phone with Kyle, explaining how to talk yourself out of a speeding ticket… again.

*2.* 20-minute, weekly delay to extricate agitated, half-employed Sam Hornish, Jr. from the cockpit screaming, “This ride is mine! Mine, I tell you! I won the IRL championship 80 times, you know… and doesn’t the Indy 500 mean anything to you people?”

*1.* Crew busy signing contracts for tell-all book and Dr. Phil appearance after the season – spewing their tear-filled tale of verbal abuse to the world.
