* BrattyHalfPint[=s=]: Ricky's sons stop acting like "retarded gang-bangers" after Ricky's mother gets after them, though at the beginning you'll probably be surprised that their parents don't punish them for mouthing off to other family members. Especially once Cal incites them.

* AffablyEvil: Jean Girard is arguably the most likeable character in the film.

** She does it twice at the end to Ricky, prompting two guys to faint and the rest to get out their cellphones. Miraculously, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Ricky turns her down]], and Susan flashes her boobs at Carley. [[WorthyOpponent Carley is impressed.]]

* ShoutOut: The plot ''very'' loosely imitates the 1990 Creator/TomCruise racing movie ''Days of Thunder''. Ricky Bobby is like Cole Trickle; Jean Girard is a combination of Rowdy Burns and Russ Wheeler, etc. By coincidence, John C. Reilly appears in both movies (as Cole's car chief in ''Days of Thunder'', here as Cal Naughton, Jr.). ** Ricky compares his making out with Susan to the {{Whitesnake}} videos with [[MsFanService Tawny Kitaen]].

page previously had a statement that Larry Byrd was black.
* CuckoolanderCommentator: NBC reporter John Hannafin keeps mistaking people in the grandstands for famous celebrities. First, he's caught mistaking a man for Music/KennyRogers, despite Bill Weber telling him, "John, that's ''not'' Kenny Rogers," and Hannafin is later seen trying to interview a white man that he thinks is Larry Byrd, who was ''black''.

* AnachronismStew: At the final Talladega race, when the pace car pulls off on the last restart, Ricky Bobby's and Jean Girard's cars are side-by-side, a la a double-file restart. However, when the movie was filmed, this would not be how they would line up for a restart: in 2005, double-file restarts (or "Shootout-style restarts" as they were also called) were only used in the non-points Sprint Cup races - the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona and the All-Star Race at Charlotte. In points-paying races, the field lined up for restarts with two lines of cars - lead lap cars on the outside line, and lap-down cars on the inside line; on restarts with less than ten laps to go, all of the cars restarted single file whether or not on the lead lap. Double-file restarts were only implemented in points races starting at the 2009 Pocono 500.

However, when the movie was filmed, this would not be how they would line up for a restart: in 2005, while double-file restarts (or "Shootout-style restarts" as they were also called) did exist in 2005 in the Cup Series, they were only used in the non-points Sprint Cup races - the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona and the All-Star Race at Charlotte.

** In the climatic race, team owner Larry Dennitt gives Cal orders, through Cal's crew chief, to take out Ricky so as to keep Ricky from getting past Jean Girard. When Cal refuses to comply, Dennitt orders his third car, Ricky's old #26 ride, to wreck Cal so that Cal can't give Ricky a push. In real life, these 'team orders' would be construed as an attempt to manipulate the finish of the race, especially since the #26 shoving Cal into the wall starts a Big One, and, if what happened in real life to Michael Waltrip Racing after they were caught attempting to manipulate the finish of the September 2013 Richmond race to get Martin Truex, Jr. into the Chase[[note]]50 point penalties to all three MWR teams, as well as probations and suspensions among many MWR crew members. The resulting fall out also cost Truex his ride and subsequently caused the downfall & bankruptcy of MWR[[/note]], would result in NASCAR handing Dennitt's teams huge penalties. * AsHimself: Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is seen near the beginning asking Ricky for his autograph to drive home how popular Ricky is at the start of the movie.
