Few sports are as quotable as NASCAR. From drivers and spotters, to commentators and crew chiefs, to team owners and track presidents, the quotes fly fast and furious.
There are some phrases that no stock car fan will ever forget, including the customary "Gentlemen, start your engines" at the beginning of every race, Darrell Waltrip's trademark "Boogity, boogity, boogity!" at the drop of the green flag, and NASCAR's recent policy of "Boys, have at it."
Colorful and witty quotes are as old as stock car racing itself, and NASCAR drivers have always been known for their tempers and tantrums.
When the sparks fly, you can count on a colorful verbal exchange to follow as each driver gives his version of what happened. Here are 30 of the best NASCAR quotes of all time.
Note: As quotes, obviously these are not copyrighted material, but I should mention that I got many of them from this book.
