Top Ten Pre-Race Rituals for Chasers Other Than Tony Stewart

*10.* *Jeff Gordon:* Burns an effigy of the creator of The Chase. After all, if not for him, he’d have five, maybe six Championships.

Two words: rally beard.

*9.* *Kyle Busch:* Something different than he had been doing before the Chase, obviously.

*8.* *Martin Truex, Jr.:* Nothing really as he keeps forgetting that he’s actually IN the Chase.

*7.* *Brad Keselowski:* Tweets a picture of the Sprint Cup Series trophy before each race. Also, turns on blender extra early.

*6.* *Kevin Harvick:* Wrestles DeLana for use of the firesuit.

*5.* *Kasey Kahne:* Sticks needles in his Jimmie Johnson Voodoo doll.

*4.* *Matt Kenseth:* Tapes a little book of “bridge burning matches” to his dash with a note saying “Don’t use until November.”

*3.* *Greg Biffle:* Throws a sub at his crew chief.

*2.* *Clint Bowyer:* Drinks a toast to “the old girl” with 5-hour Energy and sings her a karaoke love song.

*1.* *Denny Hamlin:* Listens to his “How to get in someone’s head for real this time” tapes and attempts to steal Jimmie Johnson’s lucky horseshoe.
