Title: Good Finish
Post by: Cheryl on June 22, 2009, 01:03:55 PM
It was great to see Kasey Kahne hold off Tony Stewart and get the win yesterday.  I know Ken is happy!  Great to see Richard Petty get back to Victory Lane with a driver under his umbrellas.  I hadn't even thought about that until TNT mentioned it.  I'm betting Budweiser was delighted to get back to Victory Lane as well.  I don't think they've had a points win since about 2006, but I could be wrong.

When Jimmie Johnson was surrounded by Pablo, Marcos and Hamlin, I said to Lou "he looks like a lamb among wolves."   :laugh:  Really surprised he hung in there and got a good finish.  Guess he is learning how to do better on road courses.

I was rooting for Marcos to get up there and battle for the win, but his car just didn't seem to have it.

Not the best road course race I've seen, but certainly better than a lot of them lately.  Thank goodness it didn't turn into another gas mileage race like everyone was thinking it would.

I thought it was a pretty good race and the double file restarts did make things more interesting.  Glad to see KK win one for Richard Petty.

 Kasey and Budweiser won the long Charlotte race and one Pocono race in 2008.

Oh yeah, you're right, Brian!  Sorry about that!  I totally forgot!   :-[
