Don’t confuse it with the Jerry Springer Show; these men were clearly meant to drive, not box, as evidenced by 42-year-old Matt Kenseth’s recent headlock that looked more like playground roughhousing than grown men attempting Friday Night Fights.

Geoffrey Miller's Five Things to Watch in Indianapolis
Geoffrey Miller highlights the five NASCR storylines to watch in this weekend's Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

1. Expect Brickyard speeds to be up considerably
NASCAR’s new car and the ever-looming fear of a repeat of 2008’s tire issues at Indianapolis sent several teams to the 2.5-mile speedway over the spring and summer for testing sessions. The tires, at least during those sessions, lasted.
