From close calls and rain delays to jet dryer jokes, some serious animosity between drivers and a first time winner, the best of the Coca-Cola 600 scanner sounds shows the range of emotions that drivers experience during the season’s longest race. It makes the drivers seem just like all of us when they experience the racing equivalent of road rage, like complaining about Erik Jones’ pit lane parking job or Kyle Larson making aggressive lane changes without his blinker.
We love that NASCAR puts together these highlight compilations. Could you imagine if everyday drivers had their in-car rants broadcast to the world?
