BRISTOL DRIVER INTROS

Did you miss the driver introductions at Bristol on Saturday night? Kyle Busch was introduced to 160,000 fans as Lesley Gore’s "It’s my party" blared from the speakers. (Oh, if only that was true.) OK, for real, each driver was introduced to a song of his choosing and was given a chance to say a few words to the crowd. Busch chose "Amazing" by Kanye West. No, I don’t think that song will be charting in eastern Tennessee anytime soon. Props to YouTuber Cube11679 for the videos.



Joe Nemechek, Elliott Sadler, Denny Hamlin

Sadler goes with the Ric Flair approach. A veteran move.

John Andretti, Paul Menard, Sam Hornish Jr.

Fight for your right to party? Really, Sam Hornish, Jr.? I don’t think the Beastie Boys even like that song anymore.

Jeff Burton, Michael Waltrip, Tony Raines

You get the feeling Michael Waltrip pictured this moment in his head at least a few hundred times.

David Stremme, Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Robby Gordon, Tony Stewart

A Bawitdaba sandwich.

Kasey Kahne, Regan Smith, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Scott Wimmer

I think Junior could have walked out to the North Korean national anthem and he would have received the same amount of applause.

Marcos Ambrose, Martin Truex Jr., David Ragan, Terry Labonte

How Marcos Ambrose resisted the urge to yell, "That’s not a knife. This is a knife!" I’ll never know.

And finally… Kyle Busch… from YouTuber RowdyBusch51

Kyle Busch, meet your adoring public.

UPDATE: Am adding these to this post.

Jimmie Johnson, Bobby Labonte, A.J. Allmendinger, David Reutimann

Jimmie Johnson knows you love him.

Jamie McMurray, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Brian Vickers

From any angle, people really hate Kyle Busch.

Kurt Busch, David Gilliland, Juan Pablo Montoya, Reed Sorenson, Ryan Newman

Beat it? Reed Sorenson and Sam Hornish Jr. need to update their iPods.

Joey Logano, Casey Mears, Clint Bowyer

Logano kicks it old school.

Matt Kenseth, Dave Blaney, Scott Speed, Greg Biffle 

Scott Speed – out! (Now there’s something fans have heard before.)

Mark Martin 

Martin received a hero’s welcome.
