According to Forbes, "the kind of wheels you drive speaks volumes about your personality and and lifestyle." Hmmm...interesting. So what about our Lowe's Racing crew? What can we learn about them?
Dr. Charles Kenny, a consumer psychologist, says this about car preference: "a minivan says that you need nurturance and escape; the SUV tells people that you have that need for adventure; ultra-luxury brands show off your need for status and uniqueness; sports cars tell people about youthful exuberance, rejuvenation, and impulse control; muscle cars such as the old Camaro and Firebird tells people about impulse control; trucks show off a combination of power, control and gender identity; hybrids show off character, doing the right thing as well as having the fear of judgment; and compact cars tell people about your need for rationality and character."
Wow, there you have it! Whether or not you agree with the personality assessment, for this week's question, we asked if the crew preferred a sports car, truck, SUV, or "other" type of vehicle. Here are their answers:
Truck: Kyle Bazzell (hauler driver), Chad Kohn (backup hauler driver), Pete Michel (shocks/engineer), Lance Munksgard (pit crew coach), Dave Collins (tire changer), John Boydston (engine tuner), David Elenz (race engineer), Calvin Teague (tire changer), Brandon Harder (gasman), Matt Tyrrell (tire carrier), Andrew Childers (backup jackman)
SUV: R.J. Barnette (front tire carrier), Marius Hauser - "An SUV, but riding around in a sports car is great too!"
Who else is NOT surprised that trucks were at the top of the list? It's all about that Chevy power!
