NASCAR drivers may be some of the fiercest competitors in the world of sports. Think about it: a normal day at work requires an incredible amount of physical, mental, emotional, and psychological strength for them. So it’s perhaps fair to give them a pass when it comes to comic timing, something Bubba Wallace and co. recently proved.

In a video posted by NASCAR on NBC, Bubba Wallace, Alex Bowman, and AJ Allmendinger read out some ‘ dog dad jokes’ on the occasion of Father’s Day. And to say those jokes lived up to their name, would be an understatement.

“What kind of dog doesn’t bark? A hush puppy,” Allmendinger began.
