Is NASCAR's 'Loudon The Lobster' The Best Trophy In All Of Sports?

The answer is NO, but it's still pretty fucking cool.

The 2024 NASCAR season is flying by, and with only 9 races left in the regular season, the Cup Series is heading to Loudon, New Hampshire this weekend. They're racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a just-over-a-mile flat asphalt oval, dubbed “The Magic Mile.”

But all of that shit doesn't matter because I am writing this blog to make sure you know about one of my favorite trophies in all of sports… 'Loudon the Lobster'…

After this 'monster from the deep' poses with the race winner for a couple of photos, the good people from Makris Restaurant pressure cook the 18-22 pound beast, remove about 6-8 pounds of meat, flash freeze it, package it, and send it off to the winning race team's shop where they melt a gallon of butter and make a SHITLOAD of lobster rolls from Loudon's cooked corpse.

Finally, a taxidermist reassembles the shell, repaints it to look like an uncooked lobster, and mounts it as a trophy shipped to the winning driver.

Now, some people might say, "I hate that fucking trophy because I hate the taste of lobster."

Or perhaps someone else will brush the blue hair out of their eyes just long enough to scream, "MEAT IS MURDER!"

To both of those people, I'd reply- "I hear your concerns, and nobody fucking cares."

Spider, Quigs, and I break down everything you need to know about Loudon on this week's Rubbin' Is Racing. We also bid "FAREWELL!" to Martin Truex Jr and unsuccessfully tried to get a handle on what is shaping up to be the silliest "silly season" that NASCAR has had in some time.


Name me a better trophy… I'll wait… But please don't come at me with a hunk of metal that doesn't feed you lunch.
