You gotta be impressed by the way he handled the entire situation. He remained calm and collected throughout the race weekend, made a commendable decision to start at the back, and demonstrated some real speed through both qualifying and the race on one of NASCAR's most difficult tracks. Well done Jacques!

I think the terms "sparkles" is a little bit much. Jacque raced very smart for the situation and didn't get in over his head but I wouldn't anything about it sparkling.
