The Best Nascar Invocation – Ever!

July 23, 2011
Nascar Nationwide Series Race In Nashville Tennessee

One, if not the best portion of Saturday’s Nationwide Race in Nashville, came from Pastor Joe Nelms who proves an invocation doesn’t have to be stoic to be effective. Right away fans began tweeting, blogging and posting on social media networks how great the pre-race prayer was. Labeling it the Best Invocation Ever! Within minutes the video was posted on YouTube and sports blogs.‘s Brian Floyd likened the invocation to a scene from Talladega Nights. What some may not know is this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Pastor Joe deliver a pre-race invocation and make it a memorable one. We remember last years invocation which was equally jovial, though perhaps not as memorable as the one delivered tonight!
