Those Surprised That Ryan Newman’s Car Was “Randomly” Selected at Darlington Were Also Sursprised When…

Â After each Sprint Cup race, NASCAR officials typically take the winning car and a random chosen car or two to be thoroughly inspected at their Research & Development Center in Concord, NC. There seems to be a rather remarkable ratio of drivers or teams who have at some point run afoul of the sanctioning body and those machines to be randomly chosen for closer inspection.
When Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman said in veiled language that “Someone(meaning NASCAR)Â had their heads up their asses” in Talladega, it came as little surprise that his car was one of those “randomly” chosen after Saturday night’s race in Darlington.
There were a number of jokes passed along on Twitter and Facebook after the announcement was made that the #39 Chevrolet had been selected. So, in that spirit, I have created a not-so-serious list of things that might have also surprised anyone who was caught off guard when Newman’s was “randomly” singled out.
Those surprised that Ryan Newman’s car was “randomly” selected by NASCAR at Darlington were also surprised when…
1. …Lance ArmstrongÂ admitted he used performance enhancers.
2. …female fans cheered for Kasey Kahne.
3. …Republicans and DemocratsÂ refused to cooperate with each other inÂ Washington.
4. …Kurt Busch had a “meltdown” after his car’s handlingÂ went bad.
5. …Rosie O’Donnell “came out”.
6. …Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds proclaimed that they liked the latest NASCAR change.
7. …the weather forecast turns out wrong.
8. …the government couldn’t produce a balanced budget.
9. …the car driving down the interstate with its left blinker didn’t actually turn left.
10. …their stomach felt a bit queasyÂ after eating atÂ the $4.99 all you can eat buffet located just off the interstate.
11. …every episode of ‘Dora the Explorer’ turns out exactly the same as the previous episode.
12. …news comes out that Lindsay Lohan is in trouble with the law.
By the way, on Tuesday it was stated by NASCAR that Newman’s car and engine cleared post-race inspection at the NASCAR R&D Center.
