No. 10: The hat of Richard Petty. The sunglasses of Dale Earnhardt. The swagger of Jimmie Johnson. It’s an unstoppable force of 21 championships!

No. 9: It’s easy to freak out driving into the sun on the highway. Just imagine doing it at race pace without the little folding sun visor thing found as a convenience in modern street cars.

No. 8: If you’re going to crash, crash at night so everybody gets to see cool sparks. There’s always a silver lining.

No. 7: Is this the Big Three? Fun fact: the last time these three drivers raced each other was at Bristol in March 2008, 455 races ago. NASCAR on NBC coworker Jeff Burton won the race.

No. 6: If the members of TLC ever raced NASCAR, they’d have awfully dirty grille openings; they don’t want no scrubs.

No. 5: Adam Stevens is so cool he’s got ice water flowing through his veins. Also through his digestive system.

No. 4: Kids, this is why it always pays to wear your favorite driver’s gear to the track.

No. 3: So, uh, this little incident should make for some fun discourse on social media this week.

No. 2: I’m pretty sure this is what happens immediately after I give anyone a gift. Right into the trash.
