Happy Ending

What a fantastic way to finish! Mark Martin's Nationwide win yesterday at Las Vegas "Marked" his 49th career victory in the series. He continues to hold the record. The race had so many lead changes it was hard to keep up... with Kyle Busch dominating in his usual manner until he got careless and over confident with a move that put him in the wall. That stupid move changed everything for the rest of the field and what I thought was going to be another Carl Edwards race turned into a fuel mileage game. The race had all the ingredients for excitement, fun and a very happy ending. Danica Patrick even set a record for the first woman to get a 4th place finish... she picked off one car at a time working her way forward coming from a lap down. She is getting the hang of these cars... look for more record breaking stuff from her. Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne held his ground all day with a very respectable 5th place finish.
I love happy endings.
