Elliot Johnson's Post-Game Interview Turns NASCAR

Less than a week into his tenure with the Atlanta Braves, second baseman Elliot Johnson is quickly making friends with the hometown crowd.

Not only did he drive in the game’s only two runs of the game with a second-inning triple in Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over the Cleveland Indians, but then he took a sharp left turn in the post-game interview to appeal to the Southern crowd.

I think a few laps at the Atlanta Motor Speedway are in Johnson’s near future.

He also does a mean Harry Caray.
