I Knew You Were Trouble When You Revved Up; a song in ode to JGR’s engine issues

It's been a rough early go of it for the Joe Gibbs Racing engine department. JGR teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin will start at the back of the field for Sunday's Subway 500 at Phoenix International Raceway after each team changed engines.

It's the second weekend of engine issues for the JGR team. Last week at Daytona, both Matt Kenseth and Busch fell out of the 500 while leading within laps of each other because of engine issues.

Hamlin's engine let go during practice on Saturday at Phoenix and on Sunday while testing the engine during normal morning procedures, Busch's team had an issue and decided to change the rocker arm. Busch won Saturday's Nationwide race in a JGR car.

And you know who else knows Trouble? Taylor Swift. So I present "I Knew You Were Trouble When You Revved Up," set, to the tune of Swift's current hit and not-at-all-catchy "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Once upon a time a few engines ago
The 500 was in our sights, we were leading it
You blew up, you blew up, you blew up up up
I guess it happened twice, and I guess it really stunk
And when it blew again, it was just Denny left
Without Matt, without Kyle, without team team team mates

And now it’s gone again, at Phoenix Raceway

And I realize, the blame is on TRD

'Cause I knew you were trouble when you revved up.
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you revved up
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
Now you’re lying on the cold garage floor
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, everyone sees the smoke
Pretend we haven’t had, these bad issues before
You're smoking, you're smoking, you're smoking

Now I heard you broke a rocker arm from my guy Mark Cronquist
A back row starting spot is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

You were long broken when you came here

And I realize, we could miss the Chase, yeah!

I knew you were trouble when you revved up.
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you revved up
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
Now you’re lying on the cold garage floor
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
And the saddest fear comes creeping in

That you never strike Chevy, or Ford, or Dodge, or anything, yeah

I knew you were trouble when you revved up
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you revved up (you were right there, you were right there)
So shame on me now
Drove me to laps I’ve never run
Now you’re lying on the cold garage floor
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you revved up
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you revved up
Trouble, trouble, trouble
