No. 9: When somebody suddenly slows down in your lane on the highway.

No. 8: Is it just me, or does Denny Hamlin's Phoenix trophy look just a tiny bit like a certain type of crustacean Mr. Hamlin abhors?
5 of 11
No. 7: There's nothing stock about a stock car: NASCAR race vehicles contain precisely zero cup holders, leaving drivers to get a little creative.

No. 6: That'll do it for Chase Elliott's season. If only it were the Round of 9 instead of the Round of 8.

No. 5: When you pull up alongside a big rig, hoping they'll honk the horn.

No. 4: Again with the NASCAR cup holder dilemma.

No. 3: Denny Hamlin gave up a 10-second lead when the caution flew within the final 10 laps, eliciting a response not unlike when you miss your exit on the interstate — not that I'm speaking from experience or anything.

No. 2: They definitely practiced this beforehand, right? Surely, with the amount of preparation that goes into a race-winning weekend, they practice victory celebrations, too.

No. 1: There's nothing like a Gatorade bath in Victory Lane that probably ruined crew chief Chris Gabehart's laptop in that backpack.
