When you live in a residential area, you should mow your grass. If you don’t, the president of the homeowner’s association will probably break down your door. But in NASCAR, you let that grass grow. Don’t mow it. It will not end well.


Yet again, the weird hex on NASCAR’s Chase for the Championship drivers struck. This time, it was with Brad Keselowski at Kansas Speedway. Oddly, the driver he was racing at the time of the wreck was another Chase driver, Denny Hamlin:

Stop mowing the grass, drivers. Save that for your front yards. Then again, if you’re going to do it, it’s better to do so with your car than with your body. Just ask Austin Dillon. Ouch.
