Well, this is just delightful. Jimmie Johnson is in Las Vegas to celebrate NASCAR Champions' Week, and the six-time Sprint Cup champion has decided to make the most of the opportunity by recreating scenes from "The Hangover." So far, we've got the baby, the tiger, the rooster, the elevator ... plus, of course, one "lost" member of the "Six Pack," crew chief Chad Knaus:

The coup de grace, so far, is this message from Mr. Chow himself, Ken Jeong:

"It started off Monday when I left L.A. to come over here," Johnson told USA Today's Jeff Gluck. "I sent out a tweet [about the Hangover] and the response got us all thinking about things. My office is out here ... and before I knew it, I came back to my room and there was a stuffed tiger, a little chicken, a baby, little outfits for the baby, a carrier, the whole thing."

You can follow the progress of Johnson on his Instagram account. He promises more surprises ahead.

"We’ve had fun, and I have a few other fun things coming out," Johnson said. "Hopefully one really big one coming up still."

Mike Tyson? Please?
