It's good to have friends in fast places.
Kid Rock, the living embodiment of the NASCAR lifestyle, threw his monstrous 40th birthday this past weekend in Detroit.
And as part of the festivities, NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson wished the birthday boy well via videotape, and on behalf of Chevrolet gave Kid (or, uh, Mr. Rock) a brand-new Chevy Camaro SS. Not bad, huh? The "Badass" Camaro sat at the 50-yard line of Ford Field as a parade of guest stars paid tribute to the Kid and the city of Detroit. (Planting a Chevy in the middle of Ford Field? Clever!)

Not bad, huh? You didn't get me anything for my birthday, Jimmie. But hey, there's still time.
