In perhaps the most entertaining pre-race segment in recent memory, NASCAR on FOX pitted announcers Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer against each other for one more on-track skirmish. On the Daytona International Speedway Road Course. In rental cars. As you might imagine, the segment stocked our GIF arsenal.

Kudos to the NASCAR on FOX team for capturing contact in slow-mo, just as if we’re watching an actual Cup Series production.
