That has all changed, with the drivers of today polished and clean-cut athletes who are expected to behave like commercial puppets in public.” ~ Brock Yates

  45. “I realize this is blasphemy, but a few weeks ago I tried to watch a NASCAR race being run at Talladega. I lasted about five minutes before terminal boredom overtook me. It appeared to be nothing more than a high-speed freeway commute–a mob of luridly painted, identical lumps of metal loping at 180 mph around the banking, fender to fender, nose to tail. Knowing the scenario would surely devolve into a multicar demolition derby that would thrill the goobers in the grandstands, I turned off the set to later learn that this time it was Jimmie Johnson who triggered the eight-car melee.” ~ Brock Yates

When we’re struggling on the track, I try to take myself out of the situation and realize how small these earthly problems are. I love being able to spread the Word. That’s my main purpose in life. Driving in NASCAR is icing on the cake.” ~ Tanner Berryhill
  48. “I wish they would pass a law where all Democrats and Republicans had to wear NASCAR racing suits because if you look at the NASCAR drivers, it tells who their sponsors are.

No one can just say, ‘Hey, I’m going to be a NASCAR driver.'” ~ Kellan Lutz

Because they don’t place any restriction on enhancements for athletes, in the very near future the Paralympics will bear a closer resemblance to NASCAR than to the traditional Olympics. There will be a human-machine melding that will result in crazy feats of athleticism.” ~ Ron Currie Jr.
  56. “I feel like with Indy cars, you can just show up – if you are equipped to build and make a nice car, then you could be competitive. But in NASCAR I don’t see that even being possible for someone to just show up with a car. There’s too much evolution of the tricks and bells and whistles and all the things it takes to be fast in stock-car racing that you wouldn’t know.” ~ Danica Patrick
  57. “When I did some NASCAR races this year I noticed that I was increasingly missing the racing side – to race against each other – because in rallying you really race against the clock.” ~ Kimi Raikkonen

  59. “Motor Racing Outreach is great. They provide a chapel service every Sunday for drivers, wives, crew members, and others in the NASCAR industry so that we can gather and celebrate our faith. It’s important to me to have this time before the race on Sundays. They also provide other services such as at-track childcare and counseling.” ~ Austin Dillon
  60. “It has been obvious all along, to anyone paying attention, that the politicians shouting loudest about deficits are actually using deficit hysteria as a cover story for their real agenda, which is top-down class warfare. To put it in Romneyesque terms, it’s all about finding an excuse to slash programs that help people who like to watch Nascar events, even while lavishing tax cuts on people who like to own Nascar teams.” ~ Paul Krugman

  64. “There was a day when you could identify a NASCAR Ford, Chevrolet, or Dodge and they actually looked like “stock cars.” Now they are pod machines, slick on the outside but still powered by the same Neanderthal carbureted pushrod V-8s that have been under their hoods for half a century. If this is real auto racing, then the WWF ought to be part of the Olympics.” ~ Brock Yates
  65. “I think NASCAR’s coming to Canada now so it’ll take on a whole new relevance. Be afraid.” ~ Samantha Bee
