Trick or Treat NASCAR Style
Still scrambling to throw together a Halloween costume for tonight? Try one of these 10 NASCAR-related getups.
Dale Jr.: Wear an unassuming T-shirt and pair of Wranglers and have hundreds of race fans stalk you.
The BV: Keep the five o’clock shadow growing.
Jeff Hammond: Hit the local Western store and buy some boots (spurs required), a cowboy hat and belt buckle the size of a salad plate.
Scott Speed (above right): Shave your hair into a Mohawk. Use your imagination after that.
The Champion: Just say you’re Jimmie Johnson.
The Carl: Back flip out of your car upon arrival and fail to catch the person wearing the Champion costume.
Bruton Smith: Come dressed to the nine like SMI’s head man. Show a little chest and the perfect tan underneath your shirt and sport coat, along with lavish, gold-plated sunglasses.
The Goodyear Eagle: Shred whatever you’re wearing.
Token NASCAR fan: Arrive drunk wearing jorts. Show off the belly and back hair.
The Biff: Bring a box of Milk-Bone dog treats as well as select K-9 DVDs, like “101 Dalmations,” “Lassie,” “Old Yeller” and “Turner & Hooch.”
Today at Texas: Qualifying actually took place (the previous three sessions were rained out). Brian Vickers timed in 13th, with teammate Scott Speed qualifying 33rd. Scott starts 18th in tonight’s Craftsman Truck Series race (9 p.m. ET).
