Happy Race Day

I eat my words Marc. The Nationwide race was anything but boring. What is up with turn 4? An oil slick! It was the early demise of several including Smoke who probably would've had the 3 in a row.

I just love seeing Mark Martin win a race. In Jr.'s car no less. What awesome integrity that Mr. Martin has. He felt so bad for wrecking Carl and Brad Keselowski. It is a shame, but "that's racin' boys". Young Brad did an awesome job in the 88. His average finish for '07 is 26th.... ya think that'll climb 10 or more? Yeah Buddy!! He'll be in a Cup car for '09.

Some bloggers have asked how to gain access to the NASCAR Media website. It's an application process and they do not hand out credentials to bloggers as a rule. I am a photographer and that's what I think gained me access. It's anybodies guess, but I applied last year and was denied... this year I was accepted. They have some strict guidelines.

Back at the Cottage... Ole man Winter brought March in like a lion. I woke up to 12 inches of the white stuff. The good news... temps in the 40's all this week. I'm ready to move south by George!!

It was an exciting race, but not really a good race. The best thing is that the four "Claimstakers" from the Cup were all taken out, which gives the regulars a better chance to win the championship--something that would be instrumental in giving the series legitimacy.
I'm not against the "Insurance adjusters"--the Cup drivers who are there part time to prepare the way for developmental drivers, and to gain sponsorship--but I want to see some real Nationwide Series champs, the ones who did it like Martin Truex.
I personally don't think the spacer plates will serve the purpose of saving the teams money if they are going to drive away sponsors and cost the teams more to fix wrecked cars.

I think they will have tire issues today. Two different cars granted but yesterday it looked like tires were a problem and today with the style of the track and the COToday I think it will raise its ugly head again.
