NASCAR Image Of The Week: DeLana Harvick's Revenge On Tony Stewart

Here's the latest from our friend @nascarcasm, who has done some investigative reporting on the whereabouts of a certain marine animal in New England.

Says @nascarcasm:

After last week's much-publicized grabbing of her behind, DeLana Harvick has hired the Loudon Lobster to help her exact revenge.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Helmet-Throwing Tony Stewart Receives Honor

The NASCAR world is still abuzz over Tony Stewart's helmet toss toward Matt Kenseth during Saturday night's Bristol race, and now Stewart is receiving even more recognition – at least according to the mind of @nascarcasm.

@nascarcasm sent in this photo with the caption: "Big day for Tony Stewart in his home state of Indiana, as a fellow state legend gives him a very rare and prestigious honor."

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Mars Rover, Danica Patrick Share Misfortune

The Mars rover "Curiosity," which has been sending pictures back to Earth for the last couple weeks, suddenly lost all communication with NASA on Monday when it hit an unexpected bump – at least according to our friend @nascarcasm.

In fact, @nascarcasm was able to obtain the last known transmission from the rover, and has shared the image below with the rest of us:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Just How Good Was Watkins Glen Finish?

Our buddy @nascarcasm just sent this along. Seems even the latest Internet meme is going to have to change its attitude.

Just how impressive was Sunday's finish of the NASCAR Watkins Glen race?

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Pocono Raceway Critters Want Revenge

We just received this image from the anonymous satirist known as @nascarcasm, who apparently stumbled across this poster in the woods near Pocono.

@nascarcasm had this to say about his discovery: "This week at Pocono Raceway, the animal kingdom means business."

NASCAR Image Of The Week: New Pit Sign For Sam Hornish Jr.

Pssst! Hey Sam, over here!

After Sam Hornish Jr. caused a crash during Sunday's Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland and blamed it on being distracted by his hood pins, @nascarcasm submitted this idea for a new pit sign that is sure to get the driver's attention:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Kevin Harvick's Campaign Poster

Our buddy @nascarcasm just dropped us a note to say he's discovered Kevin Harvick is running for some kind of political office – at least according to this campaign poster.

Hope? That's not Harvick's campaign theme. Instead, a run-in with another driver at the New Hampshire Nationwide Series race appears to be on his mind.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: No. 17 Team Gets Daytona 500 Rings

Roush Fenway Racing's No. 17 team received Daytona 500 championship rings on Tuesday morning in honor of Matt Kenseth's victory earlier this season.

But the artist known as @nascarcasm didn't quite feel they captured the essence of the race enough, so he added an appropriate twist:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Silly Season Interview Helper

The NASCAR world was rocked this week when Matt Kenseth and Roush Fenway Racing announced the driver would not be returning to the No. 17 Ford next season.

So what does this mean? It's the OFFICIAL start of the 2012 NASCAR "Silly Season" -- the seemingly endless and oft-confusing period of speculation as to to which free-agent drivers will end up with which team next year!

Until announcements are made official, drivers and owners are faced with the painstaking task of shoving aside or providing non-answers to questions from the media regarding their future destination. Now you can, too!

With @nascarcasm's series of NASCAR Silly Season refrigerator magnets, compose your own vague and non-committal answer to the question of, "Can you tell us where are you going next year?"

Here's an example of proper magnet use:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Pit Road Penalty Bingo

Just received this from @nascarcasm. Sounds like a fun game, actually.

In light of Sunday's successful race at Pocono Raceway, the track has just announced that a new game will be available to fans heading to the August race. Keep an eye on pit road, fans, and you could win FABULOUS prizes!

NASCAR Images Of The Week: Retro Music/Racing Partnerships Gone Bad

It was revealed Thursday that 90's-rap phenom Vanilla Ice would be driving the honorary pace car for next week's NASCAR event at Pocono Raceway.

While many scoffed at the idea, it's unfortunately NOT the first time a one-hit-wonder of questionable talent teamed up with NASCAR – at least according to the mind of our satirist @nascarcasm.

Take a look at some of these blasts from the past:

2011: JJ's Hammer Pants Firesuit

Kobalt Tools, a sponsor of Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 team, wrongly chose to affiliate themselves with MC Hammer. A poor effort of cross-promotion led to the now infamous Hammer-Pants Firesuit.

2005: The Humpy Wheeler Dance

Famed Charlotte Motor Speedway promoter "Humpy" Wheeler, known for the pomp and bombast of his pre-race shows, would rather forget his foray into hip-hop, teaming up with Digital Underground to perform "The Humpy Dance" before that year's Coke 600.

A confused crowd stood silent and cross-armed. Wishing the crowd "Peace and Humpiness forever," Wheeler walked offstage and the gimmick was never used again.

Humpy_medium

2008: Boris Said Fred

Boris Said figured a road-course-ringer and a one-hit wonder would be a perfect match. However, "Boris Said Fred" failed miserably, as did novelty single, "I'm Too Scruffy."

Boris_medium

2009: Bobby Got Back

Former Sprint Cup champion Bobby Labonte was able to convince the desperate Sir Mix-A-Lot that the "Bobby Got Back" promotion was a bad idea, and thus, it never saw the light of day.

2012: Monster Makeover (pending)

Should the Vanilla Ice appearance at Pocono receive good press, Dover International Speedway will team up with legendary 80's one-hit-wonder A Flock Of Seagulls and...well...

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Jimmie Johnson's New Video Game

Last year, Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine video game was released. It gave players a chance to race anything from recliners to lawn mowers to shopping carts.

But the game was missing one important element, which Johnson showed after his win Saturday night in the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.

Fortunately, Johnson and his video game team are already planning an update to the game – at least according to @nascarcasm.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Hey Kurt, Look Out!

SB Nation's @nascarcasm has obtained a still from Kurt Busch's video statement addressing the pit-road incident last weekend at Darlington and the subsequent run-in with the No. 39 team's pit crew.

While the video has not been released, we speculate it does not end well based on the image below:

NASCAR Images Of The Week: Tony Stewart's New Sponsors

Our satire expert @nascarcasm just wrote in to tell us he received the following press release today:

From: Stewart-Haas Racing

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Think a churlish interview would be detrimental to a NASCAR driver? Think again!

Stewart-Haas Racing is pleased to announce new sponsors for the 2012 season, based entirely on 2011 Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart's now-legendary "tongue-in-cheek" post-race interview at Talladega. They are as follows:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Sprint's New Must-Have Device For Fans

You may have heard a lot about debris cautions in NASCAR lately, particularly after Tony Stewart said the race-altering caution on Saturday night at Richmond was unnecessary.

Fans sometimes don't see the caution-causing debris on TV, which can lead to conspiracy theories from those who desire to see the evidence – though NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton called those people "needy" on Tuesday.

Anyway, whether you're needy or not, our anonymous satirist @nascarcasm has uncovered a huge scoop: Sprint is about to unveil a new device that no debris-watcher can live without.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Victory Lane Celebrations Gone Wrong

Our friend @nascarcasm – the anonymous satirist and graphic artist – just submitted his latest piece, which we think you will find pretty funny.

Says @nascarcasm:

On Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway, Greg Biffle held off Jimmie Johnson to score the win in the Samsung Mobile 500. As is tradition at Texas, Biffle donned a cowboy hat and fired two six-shooters into the air while in Victory Lane.

Gregbiffle_john_harrelson_getty_images_for_nascar_medium

This well-known tradition begs the question: Have other tracks attempted to work their own local customs and/or attire into their victory-lane celebrations?

The answer is YES, albeit unsuccessfully. Here are a few notable failures:

Kyle Busch at Kentucky:

NASCAR Image Of The Week: More Bad Luck For Jeff Gordon And The No. 24 Team's Gas Man

According to our anonymous satirist @nascarcasm, things got worse for the No. 24 team while leaving California.

It seems a miscommunication while the plane taxied to the airport runway about whether everyone was on board led to more trouble for the gas man.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Bristol Motor Speedway's Newest Feature

The anonymous satirist known as @nascarcasm is back this week with the latest in his series of NASCAR images. @nascarcasm says:

He's at it again! On the heels of the success of the World's Largest HD Video Screen at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Speedway Motorsports Inc. CEO Bruton Smith has announced Bristol Motor Speedway will be getting an even more eye-popping feature – what Smith describes as "The World's Largest Free-Standing Stacks of Unused Race Tickets."

Smith's new installation will eclipse the previous record-setting stack of unused tickets, held by the Florida Marlins, by several hundred feet.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Special Anti-SOPA Edition

It seems the anonymous NASCAR satirist known as @nascarcasm is concerned about SOPA, and he submitted this image today with the potential consequences of the legislation in mind.

If SOPA were to pass, @nascarcasm could no longer create images such as the one below.

Here's the caption @nascarcasm claims goes with this photo: Oscar winners (from left) Christian Bale (Best Actor In A Supporting Role, "The Fighter"), Natalie Portman (Actress In A Leading Role, "Black Swan"), Melissa Leo (Actress In A Supporting Role, "The Fighter"), Colin Firth (Actor In A Leading Role, "The King's Speech") and Kurt Busch (Best Directing, Cinematography, Costume Design and Short-Subject Documentary, "A Positive Step For Me"), celebrate backstage following the Academy Awards, which honor achievement in filmmaking.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: A Solution For Busy Racing Media

Man, it's been a crazy offseason. It seems like every single day there's been some sort of breaking news regarding driver movement, crew chief changes or sponsorship.

It's left NASCAR reporters like me to wonder: 'When will we get a break?'

Fortunately, our good friend @nascarcasm has come up with a solution. This early Christmas gift popped up in my e-mail today:

Motorsports journalists, are you finding the 2011 Silly Season frustrating? Does it seem like every time you're about to power down your laptop after writing a story about a driver/crew chief/sponsor change, another announcement comes along?

Well, to help you with any further Silly Season changes, we at SB Nation kindly offer you an easy-to-use template from which you can write any further stories. No more stressing about the lede, transcribing the quotes, etc. Just fill in the blanks.

Sounds good to me! Check out the image below or download the PDF here and fill in the blanks yourself.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Secret Note From Jimmie Johnson To Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Fox Sports television analyst Larry McReynolds revealed Wednesday via Twitter that NASCAR will likely ban radio communication between drivers during the Daytona 500 in order to discourage the two-car drafts.

In light of the potential rule change, our satirist @nascarcasm did some digging and discovered some secret correspondence between two high-profile Hendrick Motorsports drivers.

No word yet as to whether NASCAR will crack down on this type of communication as well.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: NASCAR Clarifies 'Boys, Have At It' Once And For All

Following Kyle Busch's deliberate wrecking of Ron Hornaday Jr. during Friday night's truck race at Texas Motor Speedway, NASCAR harshly disciplined the skilled yet temperamental driver, parking him for the remainder of the weekend, fining him $50,000 and placing him on probation.

Furthermore, to refute any allegations that the now-famous 'Boys, Have At It' disciplinary policy is vague, ambiguous or inconsistently enforced, NASCAR has offered up a thorough, comprehensive and very detailed diagram explaining the specific protocol of the policy.

It was exclusively obtained, naturally, by our satirist @nascarcasm. Check it out:

NOTE: The above diagram is a follow-up to the diagram issued by NASCAR earlier in the year, which further detailed the specifics of the 'Boys, Have At It' policy following the Kevin Harvick/Kyle Busch post-race altercation on pit road at Darlington.

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Red Bull Racing's Suspicious 'New' Driver

Brian Vickers sure made a lot of people mad while being involved in five cautions during Sunday's Martinsville Speedway race.

So according to this interesting Red Bull Racing press release obtained by our satirist @nascarcasm, the team is making a move to "satisfy any lingering animosity" toward the organization.

The suspicious press release:

RED BULL RACING TEAM STATEMENT ... 10/31/11

We at Red Bull Racing Team are aware that following Sunday's Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway, some competitors in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series were upset with the actions of one of our drivers.

Therefore, Red Bull Racing Team has announced that little-known Sprint Cup driver Bruno Grégoire Étienne Vicqares from Grenoble, France will drive the No. 83 Red Bull Toyota for the remaining three races of the 2011 Sprint Cup season.

We hope this this personnel change will satisfy any lingering animosity you may have toward our organization, and more importantly, expel any desire any competitors may have to intentionally wreck the No. 83 car.

Mr. Vicqares is excited for his Cup debut next week at Texas Motor Speedway, and hopes his car is 'très bien.'

Regards,

Red Bull Racing Team

Purchase the official Jimmie Johnson Chase For The Sprint Cup Media Trajectory Meter, flip it on during the next Chase race, and it'll quickly become a task easier than a Cup driver winning a Nationwide race!

NASCAR Image Of The Week: Oliver Stone Gets Wind Of Paul Menard Conspiracy Theory
