After a long but successful Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway last weekend, Sprint Cup Series rookie Chase Elliott just wanted to go home.

There was just one problem, however: His ride back home to Charlotte, North Carolina was Jimmie Johnson, the race winner and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate.

Johnson, of course, couldn't leave before taking part in the standard Victory Lane ceremonies and fulfilling the winner's post-race media obligations, which can easily take up to 90 minutes to compete.
