The “big one” feels like an inevitability at NASCAR’s restrictor-plate tracks like Daytona. At some point, all the cars that have been bunched together by the kit that limits their top speeds will come together in a massive wad of bent metal and sadness. You might as well pass the time with a song.


Here’s Sprint Cup racer Tony Stewart busting out a line from Montell Jordan’s 1995 jam “This Is How We Do It” ahead of tonight’s first “big one.”

While it’s hard to tell how well Smoke belts out the R&B classic over a scratchy NASCAR team radio, he’s got plenty of time to perfect his smooth vocals coming up. Stewart retires at the end of this season.

Hey, man, if I had just broken an 84-race winless streak, I’d be singing, too.
