Even though driver Landon Cassill didn’t make the playoff cut this year, he still chimed in on the emoji reveal on Twitter.

We must agree, Matt Kenseth’s emoji is a bit cheesy.

The No. 20 driver may not know what an emoji is, but he sure is excited about it.

And it sounds like Jaime McMurray is really pleased with how his emoji turned out — McMurray has officially left the … race track anyone?
