All I can say about the first race…AWESOME!!!
Kevin Harvick just dominated today. RCR is DEFINITELY back. I still think either Kevin or Matt are the guys to beat. Kevin is leading the Cup points for the first time in his Cup career. I would love for Kevin to win both the Cup and Busch in the same year, but we all know there’s a long way to go and anything can happpen along the way.
Things didn’t start too well for HMS. Kyle ended up having a “meet and greet” with one of the walls. Oh what a shame….NOT!
And of course that was me you heard screaming all the way from Texas. I was doing the happy dance out here in West Texas. How does it feel Jimmie???? Need some Kleenex? Guess Chad can’t “fix” this one for ya!!!
I just want to say that Tony drove like a mad man today. He looked like the Champion he is and always will be. He started back in 32nd spot and finished 2nd! DID YOU HEAR THAT PEOPLE??? 2ND SPOT!!! I just wish that kind of run happened last week instead of this week, but oh well. In the post race interview, he definitely sounded happy. I think the big pressure is off for him. He just go out there and have FUN!
I haven’t reported on Elliott lately. I would just like to say he has another top ten since moving to the #19. That would be him finishing 6th today. I think he will be a contender next year! Besides I really like his new car colors…red and black.
