When I turned off the TV last night around 10PM, the #02 (1st) and the #99 (6th) were doing well. JPM was blazing a trail around Daytona and Jimmy Johnson drove a solid drive recovering from a spin and longish pit stop that left him battling from 11th place. Imagine my disappointment this morning to see that Montoya’s team was out, and Johnson’s team was in 6th after suffering mechanical issues.
So now my attention turns to GT, and the TRG #71 that happens to include Bobby Labonte. I have always liked Bobby because we both hail from Corpus Christi, in the great state of Texas. The #71 is currently leading the GT class, so at least I have something to cheer for over the next 8 or so hours.
