NASCAR QNA: After Darlington, Chris Buescher needs a sticker, Tyler Reddick needs a razor

Where does “I don’t have a sticker” rank on the all-time NASCAR rants list?

Without any context whatsoever, a non-NASCAR fan (or maybe even just a casual fan) might assume it’s the silliest thing ever said after a race. After all, what is a modern race car if not a sticker magnet?

Chris Buescher, however, wants the little checkered sticker that goes atop the driver’s-side door after winning a race. He missed one by an inch at Kansas, which stung, but might’ve missed one at Darlington due to some ham-handed racing by Tyler Reddick, and this one flat-out raised the hackles on the normally cool Buescher.

NASCAR SPEED FREAKS More to come from Brad Keselowski; Joey Logano next to win?

Chris Buescher is eager to repeat this scene.

It didn’t help his mood to see a sticker above Reddick’s door, courtesy of his recent Talladega win.

Anyway, all this talk about a guy wanting his sticker reminds me, for some reason, of Paul Anka’s classic rant about the guys getting shirts.

But is sticker talk any sillier than Tyler Reddick’s mustache?

Yep, a tough look. Plenty of racers would’ve made an excuse that didn’t involve guilt, but Reddick immediately told Buescher and everyone else that he “messed” up.

He was probably smart to leave on his helmet during the immediate heat of the moment. Buescher definitely looked like a dude ready to deliver a right hand.

But when Reddick removed his helmet and continued his apology tour, he had to show off the new (temporary?) mustache that was supposed to pay homage to Tim Richmond on Throwback Weekend, but also drew comparisons to Luigi from Mario Kart.

Not all sartorial efforts pay off.
