Here's a fun little clip from the ongoing HBO series "Jimmie Johnson 24/7: The Road to Daytona." As you may have heard, Jimmie Johnson wins races every now and then -- enough that he's been voted Driver of the Year four times. But what happens when the guy the award is named for -- Richard Petty -- gets a little fumblefingered? Hilarity, friends, hilarity. Click on the photo below to go to the video:

All right, maybe I oversold the "hilarity" part a bit. But still, it's always good to see The King in action. Plus, props to NASCAR scribe extraordiaire Dustin Long for predicting that the trophy might fall apart, yes?
