‘Smokin’ Hot Wife’ Pastor Tells WTVF That His Infamous NASCAR Speech Was Off-the-Cuff

The Tennessee pastor who became a YouTube celebrity after thanking God for his “smokin’ hot wife” at a NASCAR race sat down with WTVF recently and said that he came up with his notorious prayer on the fly (video above).
