At Daytona, we brought you some of the best messages on the driver stall windows in the Sprint Cup Series garage. Sunday, after the race at Kansas Speedway, we had a chance to wander across the infield and onto the frontstretch where fans had congregated before the race for pre-race festivities.
They didn't forget their Sharpies. Despite the fact that none of the 43 drivers in Sunday's race would have been able to make out any of the inscriptions while hurtling through the tri-oval or even under caution, many fans took the opportunity to scribble something onto the outside wall.
And they were pretty good, though spelling wasn't some people's strong suit. If you're going to go to the trouble of attempting to spell "Labonte," "Almirola" and "Keselowski" (above) wouldn't you at least want to give yourself an easy one by writing out "Greg?"
Here's the ever tricky "Busch" and "Bush" mixup. And I hope the guy in the second picture has paid Joey Logano his rightful $5.
There were some blasts from the past too. Jason Leffler won the pole for the first Cup Series race at Kansas in 2001 and his race ended with a crash on the frontstretch. This person either has one hell of a memory or a Racing Reference app.
This person was a day late. We saw Ward on Friday and Saturday. Son Jeb was in the Camping World Truck Series race.
Finally, the love theme. I think with this message scrawled across the wall, Jess is applying to be a member on NASCAR's three person appeals panel. Not sure she fits the "unbiased" theme though. Ted, we hope your first time was as memorable as you hoped it would be.
Can you imagine how elated Bob was with Gordon's 30 place rise through the field Sunday?
