This past weekend the boys (and girl) of NASCAR were in my home state of Kentucky. But the sun was not shining on “My Old Kentucky Home”. Friday night’s Nationwide race was rain shortened and Saturday night’s Sprint race was postponed till Sunday. In the end it was Matt Kenseth doing doughnuts in the blue grass. Dale Jr won the pole but finished 12th and Jimmie Johnson had the car the car to beat but a rate race spin had him finishing ninth. On to Daytona next weekend.
Mother’s Day weekend equals no Sunday race. It used to be that they didn’t race at all on Mother’s Day Weekend but a few years ago that changed and now they race on Saturday night and not on Mother’s Day it’s self. So Saturday night the boys and girl of the Sprint Cup were in Darlington, SC trying to tame the lady in black. In the end Matt Kenseth was the one that tamed her, getting his third win of the season. Joe Gibbs Racing finished One-Two with Denny Hamlin finishing second. Jimmie Johnson had a top ten finish so he continues to lead the points. Up next the All Star Race this Saturday night.
