Are there similarities between baseball and NASCAR?

Atlanta Braves backup second baseman Elliot Johnson found a way to link the two after Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the visiting Cleveland Indians. Johnson knocked in both runs with a second-inning triple.

The above video is how he explained his performance.

Of course FOX NASCAR analyst Michael Waltrip, also a driver and co-owner of Michael Waltrip Racing, which runs the NAPA Auto Parts car, weighed in.

The @napaknowhow mention nearly brought tears to my eyes @ElliotJohnson9 Great @nascar interview! The #NAPA teams @amsupdates Come see us.

Corrected: Elliot Johnson's impersonation of Harry Caray http://t.co/KTfrddtMWY
