This is a touching conversation between mother and son. Dale Jr. came in ninth today at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis and his mother saw a little bit of the old man in his performance.

Jeff Gordon was the technical winner, but so are all of us who enjoy frank, loving conversations. You think his mom's "shit car" comment can't be topped, but then Jr.'s response is just as good, including the CYA note about his cars actually not be "shit." Yet another example of the greatness of moms and their willingness to always find something to love about you.
