Considering that they’ve been gearing up for the race for all the marbles at Homestead this weekend, the NASCAR Championship 4 of Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., and Joey Logano probably weren’t exactly chomping at the bit for their appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday night. To be fair, each and every one of them have been known to mix it up with each other from time to time.
But, all four drivers decided to be good sports — even Harvick, who looked like the most uncomfortable person in the world during this bit — and ditched their stock cars for RC cars for “The Tonight Show R.C. Pro-Am Race.”
Before the race even started, the Big 3 ganged up on the 28-year-old Logano for not knowing about the R.C. Pro-Am Nintendo game. Even off the track, Kyle Busch clearly likes to push buttons.
It was all business as soon as the race started though, with the NASCAR drivers ganging up on Jimmy, clearly the weakest and least experienced of the bunch.
Truex ended up easily winning the whole thing, but if you can listen closely, you can hear that he only rounded the turn two times instead of the required three. So, the usually squeaky clean driver of the No. 78 Toyota Camry for Furniture Row Racing ended up cheating to win, possibly in a homage to Kevin Harvick’s whole cheating debacle at Texas. Too soon?
Even with all his trash talk, Busch came in dead last, making it clear that he’s a much better NASCAR driver than R.C. car driver. If this little late night show spot is any indication of things to come at Homestead, the race will probably be one massive mess.
