*8.* “Michael, you’re not going to do the same thing to me that you did to Reutty in the 500, are you?” “Of course not, Bobby. You have my word…oops.”

*7.* “What’s that? You need a ‘pit stop?’ Check out my best waterfall impression while you wait…”

*6.* “Hey guys, it’s Denny. Anyone want to go for a drive this afternoon? Anyone? Bueller? No takers? Can I at least draft with your Mom?”

*4.* “Ehh…I’ll let Clint have his last win”

*3.* “Hey, Trevor…it’s uh…not Jack. Now, how much do you like this ride?”
