The 2017 NASCAR season is young, but it’s already full of storylines. Perhaps nothing is more pressing, however, than the quest to identify the sport’s man of mystery.
If you tuned into FOX for Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 winner Brad Keselowski’s post-race interview Sunday, you might’ve noticed a man wearing an M&M’s hat making himself comfortable in victory lane. Well, you’re not the only person who noticed him, and attempts to identify this man apparently aren’t going so well.
If you’re inclined to watch the man stand for roughly 40 seconds before being asked to leave, he makes his appearance during the following video around the 2:15 mark.
Apparently, victory lane wasn’t the only place where the man could be seen, as Travis Mack, Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car chief, saw him sniffing around the No. 88’s pit box during the race’s final moments.
It turned out to be quite an eventful post-race interview for Keselowski, who momentarily seemed to forget who sponsors NASCAR’s premier series.
Awkwardness isn’t foreign to Keselowski, either. The driver of the Team Penske No. 2 Ford was among several racers who had some trouble pronouncing Massachusetts municipality names.
