The Lyrics

Well, I'm doing a spoof of a song that isn't my favorite one from the '80s, but I just thought I'd do it in honor of the upcoming Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, in which NASCAR's best try to avoid the wall and the infamous "Darlington Stripe".
I'm just driving for an underfunded team
I was about 3 laps down on the racetrack
I think my Chevy was way out of whack
And you had to keep your race car clean
Didn't want those schmucks to bump you
What does that mean
And you said
Don't want another Darlington Stripe
Don't want to hit the wall, oh no, oh ho
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Don't want to hit the wall, oh no, oh ho
Just have to keep on racing
You're on a roll and you pray it lasts
The track behind felt rocky
But now you're getting cocky
You look at me and I'm second-to-last
Is that the reason why you're driving so fast
And Jr. said
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Nobody's going to slow me down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
I'm racing and don't want to lose ground, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
Never let Jr.'s former teammate work me over
Never let another Hendrick driver drag me under
If I see Danica after the race, I will tell her
Never want to be lapped by you, have to say
Ooooh
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
I'm running almost 30 laps down, oh no
I have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
I'm running almost 30 laps down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
I'm running almost 30 laps down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing
I don't want another Darlington Stripe
I'm running almost 30 laps down, oh no
Just have to keep on racing

Come on, guys, where's the love? This is a NASCAR parody - the National Association Specifically Centered Around Rednecks!

Helpful comment I hope:: write to a general audience. NASCAR is pretty popular but the Amiright universe is even smaller than that.
