One fan stated that Junior’s honk would be implying that the late model racer wanted the other parents to move faster and drop off their kids quickly, so Junior could head back. While another asked him not to pull off a Richard Petty and give people the chrome horn. Another fan said that it was a poor way to convince Junior’s wife that he shouldn’t be the one going to drop off the kids at school. Call it whatever, it was hilarious for all parties involved at the end.
