NASCAR Drivers & Their Hilarious Yearbook Photos


Team Jimmy Joe has gone to work, scouring the annals of elementary, junior high, and high school yearbooks to find the old school pictures of your favorite NASCAR drivers that they probably never wanted you to see. But that’s what we do. Investigatin’ reportin’,  and the results are both funny and surprising, and in some cases, prolific. And if there was one commonality amongst these high-powered drivers in their youth, it was their love for laser beams and kitty cats.
