His name is Jason and he takes care of grass.

But not just any grass. He takes care of the grass at Daytona International Speedway.

And as of Monday, that grass is also located in the track’s museum.

As Kurt Busch celebrated his first Daytona 500 win on Sunday, his No. 41 Ford sent grass flying as it went through the infield on the frontstretch. Some of that grass landed on Busch’s hood.

As is tradition, the car that wins the Daytona 500 goes into the track’s museum for the next year in the same condition that it was in victory lane.

The track has shared a humorous video on Facebook showing its head groundskeeper going about his day, which now involves taking care of the grass on Busch’s car.
