DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Last year, we took a whirl around the Daytona International Speedway garages to see what fans were writing on the windows of drivers' garage stalls.
This year, the garage windows stayed mostly blank until Saturday, which means there weren't nearly as many messages. But there were still some good ones, as well as some confusing ones.
This person was unkind to Jeff Gordon's crew. Unless he or she was referring to the fans outside of the garages.
This was written on Ricky Stenhouse's garage stall window. If you can't see it clearly, it reads "You wear the hat better and have a hottier girlfriend." The hat is in reference to cowboy hats and, presumably, Austin Dillon, and yes, hotter was spelled with an "i."
Someone here is a Missouri fan and modified the "M-I-Z-Z-O-U" chant for Columbia, Mo. native Carl Edwards to "M-I-Z-heart-C-E."
Junior's window. You don't see this every day. High quality trolling.
This message was written on Reed Sorenson's window. "Do good at the race make sure you win" is quite simple and to the point, and given his Golden Corral sponsorship, someone really wants the kids to eat free.
According to these women, Jamie McMurray's crew is the cutest in the garage. Maybe attractiveness will be a new contributing factor in 2014 power rankings?
And this message is pretty nondescript, except that it's not written on Paul Menard's garage stall window, it's on Brian Scott's. Yeah, the Menard's logo on the pit box can be confusing, but you'd think a big Paul Menard fan would have realized that.
