There's a site that allows you to play God — or Frankenstein — and create your own NASCAR driver. And not like in Career Mode of the latest NASCAR game, but by actually combining the heads and faces of two drivers of your choice. If you've ever wondered what Jimmie Johnson would look like with Danica's locks, or if Kasey Kahne had Brad's grille, well, now's your chance to find out. Head over to www.MakeMyDriver.com and give it a try yourself, but not until you've thumbed through the Top 15 Make-My-Driver Makeovers.
We start with Jennifer Jo Cobb and Mike Harmon, which is a combo that’s tailored for this app. The relationship between these two is undoubtedly several layers of dirt thick, so what better way than to kick off this exercise than with what truly looks to be a Frankendriver.
14. Kurt & Kyle Busch
Kurt Busch has been in training the past two months, preparing to do the Indy 500/Coke 600 “Double.” Meanwhile, Kyle has been training as well — on a strict diet of M&M’s and Snickers bars. See what happens when Kurt gets done training and needs a few cheat meals to get back to his playing weight.
13. Dylan Kwasniewski & Morgan Shepherd
At 72-years-young, Morgan Shepherd holds the mantle of oldest driver on the planet now that James Hylton finally hung it up at the tender age of damned-near 80. Dylan Kwasniewski is among the newest crop of 20-and-unders in the Nationwide Series. Surprisingly, Morgan’s glasses actually make a good match with Dylan’s trademark flat-brimmed Rockstar Energy hat.
12. Timothy Peters & German Quiroga
These two maniacs combined their trucks into one after Martinsville last month. See what happened after owner Tom DeLoach got them both in a room together to discuss damaging team property. This duo combines to make an awesome ‘80s movie character.
11. Ron Hornaday & Chris Fontaine
Ron Hornaday and Chris Fontaine compete against each other in the Camping World Truck Series. Here they combine to form the mirror image of comedian and actor Patton Oswalt.
10. Cole Whitt & Todd Bodine
Todd Bodine earned the nickname “The Onion” by way of his ovoid shape and smooth scalp. If he ever wished he still had a thick mop of Opie Taylor orange hair, Cole Whitt’s combo should have him running for a razor in short order.
9. Danica Patrick & Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
The obligatory Stenica pic.
8. Danica Patrick & Mike Bliss
Ever wonder what Danica looked like without all the foundation, mascara and eyeliner? Well, Mike Bliss may be able to clear that complexion up for you.
7. Brad Keselowski & Dylan Kwasniewski
Polish Power! Combine these two for a power-packed, Pulaski-sized punch. (And to see what Dylan would look like once he gets a normal hat that fits properly.)
6. Paul Menard & Brian Scott
These two (heirs to) titans of industry have followed a similar career path through Nationwide and Cup participation, both driving for Richard Childress Racing. RCR will be short a car pretty soon once Ty Dillon moves up to Cup, so he might have to combine Menard and Scott into one mega-buck driver/sponsor package.
5. Michael Waltrip & Darrell Wallace Jr.
Darrell Wallace Jr. has a bright career ahead of him and just so happens to have three names synonymous with success in NASCAR: Darrell (Darrell Waltrip) Wallace (Rusty, Kenny and Mike … Steven, not so much) and Jr. (Juuuunnniiiiooorrr!!!!). Michael Waltrip just has “Waltrip,” and while he is a match for his brother in the booth (as far as getting words in edgewise and/or getting on your nerves), if you combine Mikey with DW Jr., you just might end up with a three-time Cup champion with 107 wins, five Daytona 500 victories and a mouth that runs a mile a minute.
The most successful brother duo in NASCAR history. With three Cup Series championships, a Busch Grand Nation(wide)al title, a Brickyard 400, a rattled cage and slew of wins in Atlanta, these two Texans were a mainstay in NASCAR for nearly 30 years. But them both together, and what do you get? Uh, apparently Dale Jarrett.
1. Todd Bodine & Tyler Young
Todd Bodine + Tyler Young = The shade tree mechanic seen at your local short track. Or the large green pig in Angry Birds.
