We messed up big time on Sunday. I had sponsors in thew stands and I'm huggin' and holdin' hands and kissin'em in the ears and prayin' for a good showin'. And what do we do? We end up lookin' like a monkey fuckin' a football out there. Everybody out, PLEASE.
[Everyone gets up]
[to Cole and Harry]
... Except you two. I've got a question. What is the one thing you absolutely need to do to win a race?
That's pretty damn obvious...
You keep quiet.
You need to finish the race!
Tim, I realize Harry's been around a long time. I'm not sayin' that his ways are antiquated but it'd help to have a car that handled properly and didn't blow engines.
Well if he wouldn't get excited and over-rev the son-of-a-bitch the engine wouldn't blow. Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the tach goes into the red and reads 9000 RPMs, that's BAD.
It's also my fault that the tires blow if you ask this old fart!
Well, Hell yes it's your fault. There's 40 other vultures out there who manage to finish the race on THEIR tires. You see Darrell Waltrip usin' up HIS tires?
There's nothin' I can't do with a race car.
Well, that's the difference between you and me. There's only so much I CAN do.
Well, that's obvious!
Harry, he doesn't need to appreciate your job to do his.
He sure as hell does 'cause how can he expect to race if he don't know what a race car can and can't do?
What is this shit, huh? You want me to work the pit and YOU drive. Fine, we'll try that.
[Cole leaves the room]
I can't talk to this son of a bitch... I can't talk to that son of a bitch... I just can't... I can't... I... I...
You think he can drive?
Oh he can drive. He can drive beyond the limits of the tires, the engine, the car or anything else. If the sum' bitch listened to me we wouldn't hardly ever lose a race!
If they don't give us a sponsor in the next couple of races, my ass is fried. I'm liable to be out of the car business all together. And Harry, I know you're great, you know you're great, but if the guy in the car doesn't trust you we're never gonna win a damn race.
