Fright Nite' (2016 edition)




Claudio & Tomaso Partying with McLaren Boyz' on Downtown Streets of Austin during a festive Fan Fest on Halloween evening, circa 2014. (The Tomaso Collection)
Ah, where’s good 'Ol Vincent Price when Yuhs needs him, since after all, It's just A Thriller Ha-Ha-Ha-Haa...

"The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller"

VIDEO: Thriller

I was working on the “Confuzer” late Monday night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
From my monitor a scary picture began to show
And suddenly to my surprise
A Zombie-like Kurt Busch apparition Onscreen began to sing

He did the mash
He did the RASSCAR mash
The RASSCAR mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the RASSCAR mash


From my humble apartment’s abode
To the room’s cathode ray glow
And amongst the Nabors dwellings
Where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came out from their alcoves
Chanting “Jimmy! Jimmy! Jimmy!”
Hoping to snatch a peak
Of some Roundy-round racin’
Flickering on my TV
(Thru the patio’s window)

They did the mash
They did the RASSCAR mash
The RASSCAR mash
It was a graveyard smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the RASSCAR mash

And although The “Junior Nation” zombies were in foul Despair
Over 'lil E's Shrewd 'N wise move
To rest his Aching Head

Nonetheless, 'lil Ironhead invited the likes 'O
Kenny Wallace, Larry MacReynolds, Mr. Goodbar, Kyle Petty  
And other assorted friends to join in
Upon this little party

As the building was rockin', everyone having to put up with the blare
of the next door neighbor’s surround sound TV wailing a pitiful noise
That sounded like Rusty Wallace scratchin’ a chalkboard
While a pair ‘O Beagle’s howled in misery
As Dusk turned to Night
And the little Coffin-Bangers were soon to arrive
With their candy bags and dressed up
As BOOGITY-BOOGITY-BOOGITY! 'Ol DW', Kevin Harvick, Smoke and Kyle Bush

Whilst Thy Television kept blarin' out "The Crypt-Kicker Five's  Monster Mash

They did The Mash
The RASSCAR mash
The RASSCAR mash
It was a graveyard smash
As the TV blared the mash
It caught on in a flash
As it played the mash
It continued to play the RASSCAR mash

Out from my room, my voice crackled loudly
As once again I was disgusted
Yelling loudly and shaking my fists
I screamed, How long do we have to listen to this?
As the drone of ‘lil Trick ‘N Treaters knocked on the door

As the next door TV still blared the mash
Except It's now more commonly known
As the RASSCAR mash
The RASSCAR mash

But it's almost over
That Monster Y’all know
As Duh Chase...
