* DesignatedVillain: Jean never actually does anything villainous whatsoever. in fact he's one of the nicest characters in the movie, and we're only supposed to root against him because... he's Ricky's rival.

* HilariousInHindsight: Ricky Bobby's downfall and subsequent effort to rebuild his driving reputation, after Kurt Busch went through a two year stretch like this after Roger Penske fired him at the end of 2011 Sprint Cup season for outbursts. As if to lampshade it, Busch drove Ricky Bobby-based cars at two Talladega races (a "ME" Cougar car in May 2012 for Phoenix Racing and a Wonder Bread car in October 2013 for Furniture Row Racing).

* FridgeHorror: While Granny is whipping Walker and Texas Ranger into shape, she asks "How many times are you going to throw me the radio when I'm in the bathtub?" Considering that doing that can kill someone, those kids seem downright evil.
** Which means it's a damn good thing Ricky's mom got a hold of them when she did. Without her giving them some much-needed discipline, it's very likely those two could have actually grown up to cause some deaths.

* TheWoobie: Ricky's father-in-law Chip. Whatever negative karma he earned for fathering [[GoldDigger Carley]] does ''not'' balance out the crap he endures having Walker and Texas Ranger for grandkids.

* FridgeBrilliance: When Reese tapes a kilo of Colombian bam-bam under Ricky's car (actually a bag of Lucky Charms cereal). What do some call the "War on Drugs"? Prohibition II. How did {{NASCAR}} get started? ''Running moonshine in Prohibition I''. Ferrel and the filmmakers were explicitly calling bullshit on the War on Drugs!
