The Stanley Cup Rides Shotgun on Road Trip

8/20/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When faced with a choice between who rides up front -- your best friend or The Stanley Cup -- always ALWAYS choose ... THE STANLEY CUP!!

Dustin Byfuglien Stanley Cup Roseau
Last weekend -- the cup spent a day with NHL star Dustin Byfuglien -- who played on the Chicago Blackhawks squad when they won the championship this year.  Dude was rollin' around Roseau, Minnesota when he decided to make a gas run -- and brought Stanley along for the ride.

The person who took this photo was just filling up at the gas station when the car rolled in -- with Stanley buckled up for safety in the front seat.

Shockingly -- it's not the most random place we've seen Stanley ... earlier this year he kicked it with Justin Bieber, hit the club scene in Hollywood and rode a float in a gay pride parade.
