///NASCAR racers round the twisted track
in streaks of yellow, green, and engine red.
Their rubber tires spin in charcoal black
as rivals press the pack and gun ahead.

In streaks of yellow, green, and engine red,
the flagmen shift the circuit’s whirling pace.
As rivals press the pack and gun ahead
the leaders hit the pits to fuel the chase.

The flagmen shift the circuit’s whirling pace
as men in jumpsuits bravely bolt and dash.
The leaders hit the pits to fuel the chase
as others bump the barriers and crash.

As men in jumpsuits bravely bolt and dash,
the stragglers push to reach a greater speed.
As others bump the barriers and crash,
the fastest fight to keep a healthy lead.

The stragglers push to reach a greater speed,
the colored cars a blur beneath the sun.
The fastest fight to keep a healthy lead.
The checkered flag declares the race is won!

The colored cars a blur beneath the sun,
their rubber tires spin in charcoal black.
The checkered flag declares the race is won!
