Lebanon Pastor Revs Up Race Crowd With Invocation

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Baptist preacher has revved up a NASCAR crowd with his high-powered invocation before the Nationwide race in Nashville.

Pastor Joe Nelms of the Family Baptist Church in Lebanon gave thanks Saturday night for the race cars, the race teams, the tires and "my smoking hot wife, Lisa." He also thanked the Lord for his two children, Eli and Emma, "or as we like to call them, `The Little E's'," he said.

Nelms also invoked the Darrell Waltrip refrain the ex-driver uses at the start of televised races, "Boogity Boogity Boogity," drawing cheers from the crowd.

As he commented Monday during a series of media interviews, "I tried to spice it up a little."
