By taking the checkered flag at yesterday's Aaron's 499 at Talladega, Jeff Gordon earned his 77th career win, surpassing Dale Earnhardt for fifth place on the all-time wins list (Richard Petty is first with 200).  NASCAR fans expressed their pleasure with Gordon's victory by offering him free beverages, littering the track with beer cans when the race ended.

Obviously, this is a classless, disgusting, dangerous act, and it should only ever be done in European and South American soccer stadiums and wherever Barry Bonds hits his 756th home run.
