'Bout Time

I was able to sit home on a Monday. Martinsville 2010 will remain in my memory. I'm not a huge Hamlin fan but, it was a fantastic finish to a fantastic race. No one thought Hamlin would pull it off after pitting with 10 laps remaining. The four new tires gave him a huge advantage but we all know passing at Martinsville is not easy. Another late caution gave Hamlin an edge over then leader Jeff Gordon and the green white checkered finish truly was exciting. Bumpin' and bangin' all the way and Hamlin found a hole.

Happy Easter

Feel Good

One word.... fantastic !

That's how I feel about Justin Allgaier winning the Nationwide race at Bristol yesterday. Not only did it feel good not to see Kyle Busch in Victory Lane it felt good to see a non - cup driver win. I was actually excited. Something I have not felt in awhile watching a race. About half way I said to Pattyjo "watch this kid Allgaier". Albeit I've had my eye on him since he started his Nationwide career last season making Rookie of the Year. I also want to give a kudo to Brad Keselowski for racing Justin clean in the final laps. They both gave The Captain something to be proud of.

Now if only we can have another feel good race today....
