Today, the poor unfortunate soul who runs NBC’s NASCAR Twitter account is feeling the wrath of countless Jeff Gordon fans who are INFURIATED that a pool of NASCAR drivers don’t think that the Greatest Taxi Driver To Ever Drive A Jalopnik Staff Member is one of the greatest to ever
play the game drive a car in a counter clockwise fashion for several hours.
It all started with this informative tweet, declaring Jimmie Johnson as the best stock car driver of the post-running-from-the-ATF era (via NASCAR.com, ie “don’t blame us for this bullcrap”):
NASCAR fans, it turns out, take some of this stuff quite seriously. Pandemonium ensued.
It would be easy to keep posting tweets ala poll-induced rage, but I think you get the picture.
The funny part of all this malarky is that the poll is of 19 current unnamed drivers. The guys that actually do this for a living. The people in the cars going in circles at 200 MPH. But, or course, it’s probably the idiot Millennials’ fault:
Never change, NASCAR fans. I mean, after you ditch the racism and confederate battle flag.
