Good Racin'

Saturday's Busch race at Nashville was one of the best I've seen in awhile. It offered some of the Busch drivers an opportunity to lead laps and run up front for the entire race. It was no surprise to see Cousin Carl take the Guitar home but seeing Busch regular Jason Leffler take a top 5, in a Toyo nonetheless, made me smile. He wasn't alone with two more Toyo's up front...cup drivers David Reutimann and Dave Blaney taking 2nd and 3rd respectfully. Topping off the 5 is Marky's protege Regan Smith. I enjoyed the race so much that at lap 140 I had to leave. I DVR'ed the rest so I could see the finish...not something I'd normally do for a Busch race.

The Masters finished with a virtual unknown taking home the Green Jacket. Zach Johnson... a David and Goliath story!!

I totally agree on the Busch race! And watching Zach Johnson while he waited with his wife and baby at the clubhouse was very touching.

Hey did you get to see Carl do his flip? I know the last time you said they cut the end of the race off and you missed Carl doing his flip.
