Closing Deals at NASCAR – Phoenix International Raceway

I love NASCAR.  Yep, I make fun of people who wear their bluetooth headsets in public but LOVE to watch cars go in circles a few hundred times.  I’ve heard all the jokes but feel free to throw some more my way if you’re not a NASCAR fan as well, but rest assured there is a LOT more that goes into these races than meets the eye.

One of the things that surprises me to no end though, is that there are more people wearing bluetooth headsets than mullets every time I go to these races!  How crazy is that?  Here’s a sampling of what I saw a few weeks ago during the race at PIR.

Here’s one of those guys that comes up to a group of people with stickers or hats, makes you think you’re getting something for free (because that’d be such a great business model right? Just giving stuff away for free), but as soon as you take a hat or sticker he asks for a donation while mixing in his own brand of stand-up humor….and closing deals at the same time apparently. This guy had NO idea that the creator of was ready to take a picture and post it online!

Maybe we don’t pay enough taxes here in AZ since this officer has to close deals on the side to supplement his income.

Not even inside the track yet and my third bluetooth douchebag sighting…check out that watch! THIS GUY MUST BE RICH!

Check out this guy with his posse, what a badass…is that an Assfliction shirt or a lookalike?  Douchey either way.

Oh, and by the way, soul patches aren’t supposed to be this wide


I’m surprised I pulled off this next shot since as you can see this guy was on the move…I’ve got such an eye for bluetooth headsets these days though that I can spot them from quite a distance.

This lady wasn’t wasting any time waiting for her friend to get out of the bathroom, she was closing deals in the meantime in between time.

This one is just epic. Back of a truck. Pink shirt. Closin’ deals.

Which brings us to the best picture of them all.  Guy in a sportcoat, during a race, with a bluetooth headset on.  If you’ve never been to a NASCAR race, it’s LOUD! Everybody wears earplugs or industrial style headphones.  Who the hell is this guy talking to???

By the way, I would like to thank my friend Kathy who’s friend Jeremy hooked us up with some hot passes which enabled me to get most of these shots.  She’s a BTDB secret agent as well!
