Sauce for my wife

Notice the warning...

Daytona 500

I was so psyched waiting for this race. It seems like forever since Homestead. The race wasn't bad. The 18 was probably the car to beat. Smoke in the #14 looked strong - at least for the first half of each run. Newman's #39 looked good till he went 2 laps down with tire issues. Joey got the #20 Home Depot Toyota lots of tv time. Too bad it was while he was crashing into the inside wall.

Jr OTOH showed that he will never be as good a driver as his dad. Stupid driving to take out 9 cars - including the 18. Nascar should have parked him but an Earnhardt can do no wrong...

The weather came and Matt Kennseth ended up winning. Sad as a couple of cars (the 14 and 24) looked to be coming on strong.

I was really enjoying the race. Plenty of action. It was even good to see Jr screw up. Even better to see Vickers call him out on it. SHR got an 8th with the #14 - not bad for a new team.

Can't wait for next week.

Bummer is in trouble

I guess there is no kill counter tonight. At least 24 won't be in 3D like Chuck. Stupid NBC.
