The other 97 percent are cruel or amusing or both. I photographed the ones that caught my eye Sunday at Auto Club Speedway. (Note to Kyle Busch haters: It's B-u-s-c-h, not B-u-s-h. If you're going to hate, please hate with precision.) Here you go. I feel like this is a Carl Edwards jokeIntended audience FAILAnd Tony loves ...
