Dirk and NASCAR. A Match Made in Heaven

Apparently Dirk Nowitzki had the honor of yelling "Start Your Engines" at the NASCAR race yesterday. Unintentional comedy ensued.
Asked to pick the winner of the race, Nowitzki said: "I'll go out on a limb and say Dale Earnhardt Jr." He paused. No reaction from the audience.

"Is that a good one?" he said.
The pictures are the best part.
