testing, testing: matt kenseth owes dale jr. $2,500

And so begins a new NASCAR season (sort of) and I couldn’t think of a better way to do it other than posting the best quotes I’ve read so far from the press conferences during Pre-Season Thunder testing at Daytona International Speedway.

– I don’t know why Tony Stewart and Danica Patrick are talking about lunch meat because the question wasn’t captured, but it’s still funny to me:

TONY STEWART: It’s odd, I got a sandwich for lunch.

DANICA PATRICK: What kind of sandwich did you get?

TONY STEWART: I just got a ham sandwich.

DANICA PATRICK: I like a turkey sandwich. They’re going to get some slick meat for me to put in the fridge. I learned what slick meat was. I don’t know, I called it sliced deli meat, right, some deli meat and some cheese and some bread and mustard.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. would like to be paid now, Matt Kenseth:

Q. How did your ’70s themed New Year’s Eve party go, and who did you end up dressing up as?

DALE EARNHARDT, JR.: I’m glad you asked. I was Evel Knievel, of course. Has Matt Kenseth been in here today? Is he coming in?

NASCAR PR: He’s coming in in about 30 minutes.

DALE EARNHARDT, JR.: Y’all can remind him that he owes me $2,500 because he had a beard that night and I bet him he couldn’t keep it through the test, and we actually sent a few texts back and forth to confirm the bet, and he shaved his beard. You guys can remind him. I told him to go to the bank, but maybe he forgot. I want my $2,500.
