Pit crews often spray down sticky substances like coke (not pop or soda, you Philistines—coke) to increase traction during high-pressure pit stops, like this one during today’s NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup finale at Homestead-Miami. Maybe someone swapped the coke bottle for bacon grease?

The bacon trend has gone too far, man.

Kyle Busch is one of four drivers in the running for the Sprint Cup championship tonight. Given Busch’s main sponsor, maybe there were also M&Ms in the way, or more likely, slippery shoe soles and/or loose lugnuts.


Fellow Chase competitor Jimmie Johnson had a jack man almost wipe out earlier tonight thanks to some slippery, round lugs.
