That’s Racing

Overall yesterday was a great day for racing. As I indicated in previous posts (and comments), I immensely enjoyed the European GP, and the Indy 500 was a blast as well. I am not sure what to make of the Coca-Cola 600; it was so damn long (5+ hours) with so many cautions (22) that at times it was too hard to watch because there was no flow to the action. Let me run that by everyone again – 22 cautions (a Cup record), or better said, 25% of the laps were run under a yellow flag (103 of 400 laps). Amazing!

Don’t get me wrong; there was plenty of drama (Budweiser taking out Napa Auto … sorry, hard to resist), Vickers taking out damn near anyone he could hit, and of course the Labonte/Johnson dual through the final turn. I was pulling hard for my fellow Corpus Christi, TX native to pull it off, but unfortunately Bobby could not hold off Jimmy.

Bobby Labonte said it best:

“To finish second really isn’t all that bad, but to finish second kind of stinks, too.”

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!
