Well Jeff Gordon’s last Daytona 500 is over and he did not win. In fact he was part of a big last lap wreck. I was a little disappointed with how the 500 ended but it is what it is. Not a big Joey Lagano fan but it could be worse. And it looks like it will be sometime before the Busch brothers are back on track. It looks like Kyle will probably be back before Kurt but we will have to wait and see. I am not a Kyle Busch fan, but I do feel bad for him, on the eve of the Daytona 500 to break your leg and foot in an accident and have to have surgery, wow! For a diehard racer like Kyle that has to be tough. This pretty much hurts his chances of making the chase this year. Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr were so close but not close enough to grabbing another Daytona 500 victory. Onward and upward, Atlanta is next.
This past weekend was a Saturday night race instead of a Sunday afternoon race, and they were in Texas. Kyle Busch won the race getting the Stetson. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had another rough race, the off weekend has not been to good to him. Jimmie Johnson finished in the top ten so he still holds on to the points lead. Danica had another rough week as well. For the most part Texas was a typical race not too much drama. Brian Vickers filled in for the still out Denny Hamlin. Vickers actually had a good race. Well next weeks race in fast approaching and we will have to see what happens next.
