Today was the day that the racing season begins. NASCAR’s big race, the Daytona 500 was today. This is a day that this family looks forward to every year. We have a need for speed!!
It was an awesome race. There was a threat of rain from early on in the race. Unfortunately, the rain did come and the race ended before the checkered flag. Matt Kenseth was the winner, if you call it winning without being on the track. He was on the lead when the red flag came out to stop the race due to the weather.
The 3 Hendrick cars were something to deal with. I should say 4 because Mark Martin was up there too. Even Tony Stewart with his new team was in the front of the pack. At one point, Jr was pushed below the yellow line in an effort to block his position by Brian Vickers. Jr came strait back up on the track and a wreck followed. Vickers of course, blamed Jr for this. It seemed if anything went wrong during this race, it was Jr’s fault. He missed his pit….his fault. He had the edge of his wheel on the line in the pits….they held him for a whole lap. The wreck….blamed on Jr with no mention of Vickers pushing him below the line. Good thing that me and my man are tough!! HAHA
All I can say is, this is going to be an awesome racing season. Next up….California!!
