Daytona 500 Results
Congrats to Jimmie Johnson! It wasn't even close to my hoped for outcome, but he's now a Daytona 500 champion. That's a pretty durned exclusive group! At least now he'll have to park that winning car for a year at Daytona USA. ;-)
What else can I say, watching from the grandstand in the Daytona Superstretch: It was cold and mistly. My favorite driver lost favor (to put it in the nicest terms) with the fans for tripping up Jeff Gordon early and Matt Kenseth midway through.
Fans of Dale Earnhardt Jr. were disappointed -- that seems to be about half of the fan base -- by his seventh-place finish. They're blaming Tony Stewart, too. What can I say? It's hard to defend the way he drove. The way he came down on Kenseth, whoops! In my heart, I can't believe he would do that on purpose, but I'm eating crow tonight.
It's been a logistical nightmare getting from the infield, back to my Superstretch seat, and back again. Sorry the blog has been dark so long today. I had no wifi, no working mobile phone coverage. I'll freeform in my next entry and tell you all about the great fans and great times we had, despite the chilly, misty weather.
Back in a flash with more.
