I have been out of commission the last few days. Apparently I have some vicious upper respiratory infection. It’s more viral than bacterial, so basically I am on my own. I swear I don’t have any lungs left because I have been coughing them up the last two days. I have coughed and/or sneezed so much my back is very sore. So maybe it was a good thing I am not at the race this weekend. But you know, I still would have gone if given the opportunity. Please…I am a rabid NASCAR fan.
I was checking out Cup qualifying yesterday and caught the tail end of the #00 crash. YIKES!!!!! I have never seen a crash like that a Texas that I can recall. I am glad Michael McDowell was able to walk away from this horrific crash. The safer barrier did its job. There were showing where the car hit the wall in Turn 1 and you could tell the damage to the foam. I have to give kudos to the workers in quickly repairing the wall. It was about a little over an hour (I guess that is quickly). I still have to OUCH, every time I watch the video. This is why SAFETY is so important to NASCAR these days. Michael is able to walk away with barely a scratch to race another day.
