We love NASCAR rednecks because (a.) they’re usually drunk (b.) are usually into something crazy while drunk (c.) get drunk, get free tattoos and then realize the next day they have a malt beverage logo tatted on their ribcage. The Jeremiah Weed group (full disclosure: they once sent me 3 cans and, the next morning, have never been so sick in my life) was at Talladega this weekend to tat up NASCAR fans for a good cause.

As expected, the results are a beautiful slice of Americana.

Full report from Weed’s Facebook account:

Today’s tattoo count: lucky 17. Sixteen badass fans and Matt’s spotter, Mike Calinoff showed their support and got inked for #17 & The Air Force Village, $100 will be donated for each tattoo.

To make a long story short, the Weed folks told a bunch of rednecks they’d give them free tats and up steps ‘Henry’ who decides he wants to go to the grave with Jeremiah Weed inked on his body. Then there’s ‘Curt’ who decides to deface that sweet White Sox ink with a Matt Kenseth autograph.

We salute you guys. It takes big balls to step up for Weed and tat yourself for a few Facebook views. But Busted is here to promote you and show you off to the rest of the world (we’re huge with the Marca.com Spanish folks). The rest of the world can suck it. America might be down, but not out. Our spirit will not be squashed by a bad economy, loss of our houses, loss of our retirement accounts, loss of a wife/gay lover.

No, we step up for corporate America. In a time of need, Weed comes to us and at least 17 of you will forever remember that weekend at Talladega when a free tattoo sounded like a sweet idea.
