In what has to be a disappointing end, the weekend at Charlotte will better be known for rain than great racing that comes from Lowes. The Nationwide race was shortened and after being delayed from Sunday night to Monday, we would find no difference in luck. Mother Nature had different plans for this weekend. But, some racing happened, and what was there was either really good for some, or a wreck for others. Kyle Busch started the race and took off, which this and last season we have been very accustomed seeing. A few cars looked strong early, Vickers, Kahne, Stewart, Kyle Busch, and even Juan Pablo Montoya. The race was stopped as more rain came, and then started and stopped and started and I can’t remember how many times it happened. And finally a long red flag and inches more of rain led to a long, long stoppage.
I really don’t know much about Indy Cars or the Indy 500. I mean, once they get past “Dudes & Dudettes, start your engines”, I’m basically lost until I see the checkered flag. Then again, I don’t know much about NASCAR either, but that’s never even slowed me down as to writing about it. There are three ladies in the field this weekend at the Indy 500: Danica Patrick, Sarah Fisher, and Milka Duno. On behalf of all of the male drivers in the field, I am filing an official complaint. No, the complaint is not about there being women drivers, although I KNOW there are some good ole boys who are chafing in their fire suits about that aspect. My complaint is that all three ladies are FI-INNNNE…DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS…UMMMM UMMMMPH YUMMY…so smoking hot that I bet the average track temperature (among other things) at this year’s Indy 500 will rise…significantly.
