The Frontstretch Foto Funnies! Fontana, October 2009

Kurt Smith · Tuesday October 13, 2009


Greetings, Race Fans! Kurt Smith has taken a look at the photo collection from Fontana compiled by the Frontstretch, and he thinks he knows what’s going on in these special Kodak moments! Take a look…

“Come on Kyle, out you go! And the next time you get bitchy with your crew, you’re staying home!”

After failing to make the Chase, what’s-his-face here had a bit of trouble with name recognition on television.

“Woohoo! Hey Dad, I won! Dad? Dad? Where’d you go?”

With most every driver on the track fighting to get a picture of him for their girlfriends, it’s no wonder Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is having so much trouble finishing.

Chad believed, as does Bill Gates and Donald Trump, that success can indeed outweigh an atrocious ‘do… so he went for it.

With his ’70s leisure suit look, Brian France hoped to once and for all silence the critics who said he had no respect for history.

Despite body odor repellent enough to chase everyone out of his section, the smelly fan’s wife stuck by him through it all. No way was she giving up the Fontana season tickets…

A funny story: I was standing right next to the lady who was originally wearing the funny #48 top hat, during NASCAR Raceday. Kenny Wallace saw her in the crowd and asked to borrow her hat for his fantasy picks. If you watched Raceday, you saw what I mean. Then she was out there again in Victory Lane and Chad Knaus saw her hat and asked to borrow it. She definitely was made famous on Sunday, if only for her hat. I hope she got the hat signed by Jimmie and Chad.
Lastly, that picture of the grandstands with the “smelly fans” shows the edges of turn 1 where there were empty seats. It was not an indicator of the rest of the stands. The middle parts of the stands were full during the race.

Kevin, it didn’t look to me like Fontana’s attendance was any worse than at other tracks this year. Just saw the guy in the center and thought it looked funny.

Kurt, I was speaking to the haters who would use that picture for evil, instead of for funny. :)

Brain France looks like a young “Aunt Bea” from Mayberry in that picture.
