Daytona 500 winner austin dillon gets a tattoo Instagram/@WhitneyWard

Two days after his huge Daytona 500 victory, NASCAR driver Austin Dillon seems to still be a tad in shock that he not only came home with the win, but also a tattoo to celebrate it.

And yes, his booty still hurts.

On Feb. 20, FOX Sports interviewed Austin about the tattoo on his derriere and the night he won’t soon forget

“I was just hanging with my guys. and I already have a tattoo back there,” Austin said in the interview. “It was just a group of my boys, so after the race we went to the same tattoo parlor we went to a couple years back and got a new tattoo for being the Daytona 500 champion.”

Just the day before, Austin was a bit more talkative about the tattoo, as he was still riding high on the adrenaline from race day. “You’ll never be able to see it,” he quipped during the winner’s news conference Monday morning at Daytona International Speedway, as reported on by ESPN. “It’s a pretty cool looking today. [My wife] Whitney is probably the only one that is going to see it for a while.”

And yes, even though he’s a tough NASCAR driver used to going crazy miles per hour around a track, Dillon admits that getting the new tattoo was a little rough.

“It hurt,” Austin said. “It feels OK this morning, but one of my boys smacked me on the butt when I came over here, and I was like, ‘Easy, guys.'”

“We had talked if we won the Daytona 500, there were going to be a couple of us initiated into the ‘wolf pack,'” added shock specialist Clay Alexander, who is in his fourth year with Austin’s team. “This isn’t something we’re messing around with.”

And while Austin is acting as if we might not be seeing the tattoo anytime soon, we have a feeling we might soon get a glimpse of it, as wife Whitney is incredibly active on social media, often documenting what seems like their entire lives on her Instagram feed.
