It was a historic weekend in NASCAR, as Kurt Kyle Busch's win at Atlanta in a Toyota marked the first time that a foreign car company won a Cup race since Jaguar in 1954.  But the real story was Goodyear and its shitty tires that all but prevented side-by-side racing that the track in Atlanta (apparently) usually provides.  Top-ten finishers like Dale Earnhardt, Jr and Jeff Gordon were critical of the tires' performance, but Tony Stewart — as usual — was sure to put it in the most insulting, awkward manner on national television.

Even if you don't care about NASCAR — and let's face it, you probably don't — it's always nice to hear a guy wearing twenty-plus corporate logos on his firesuit disparage the company that makes his tires.  That's a man with a heady regard for synergy.
