Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

America it's time for a gut check. If the founding fathers saw us huddled in our little cocoons texting each other smiley faces they'd hang their powdered wigs in shame. When our idea of danger is eating gluten, there's trouble afoot. Yes, we the people have gotten soft and all the likes in the world aren't gonna save us now. But one thing will. 
 
Welcome to the place where we speed all day 
Where we bump and grind in a non-sexual way 
Where scores are settled and we break the rules 
And everybody's got a set of bad-assed tools 
Get some NASCAR in your life 
Hello glory, goodbye strife 
Welcome to the place where we call home 
Where meats are grilled and you can bring your own 
Where everyone's welcome and we all belong 
Even my friend and his American Flag thong 
Get some NASCAR in your life 
Hug your kids and kiss your wife 
 
You want Billy and Sally to learn about math and science? 
Send them to the School of NASCAR, they'll thank you for it 
Sure everybody at NASCAR gets a trophy 
As long as they win the fucking race 
Watch your mouth 
Did you know that less than 10 miles Sonoma Raceway you can go wine tasting? 
True story 
Get some NASCAR in your life 
Slap some butter on your knife 
 
Welcome to the place where your beast is free 
Like rubber hoods of a tire stampede 
Where men and women compete together 
Just like they did in the eighteen-nevers 
200 miles per freaking hour 
Seven hundred freaking horse freaking power 
 
Neck and neck they're battling down this last stretch and Offerman takes Harvey for the checkered flag 
 
There's Harveg, Legano, and Hamlin, and Newman 
Kezlowski, Dale Jr., they're all super-human 
Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenzev, the Bushes 
And maybe Jimmy Johnson will come back and kick some tookus 
 
Hello glory, goodbye strife 
You've got NASCAR in your life 
 
NASCAR makes its triumphant return to NBC Sports on July Fourth weekend.
