This is a cross posting over at NBFT Digest. I haven’t been much of contributor of late and I apologize, so if you haven’t been over there in awhile stop and say hi.
That’s right the 2008 season is winding down. With only two races left, it’s Jimmie’s championship to lose. Carl did cut down some of Jimmie’s lead in Texas, but Jimmie and Chad have been here before. I have to admit since Talladega I haven’t been all that excited about the racing. I guess it’s because Tony isn’t a contender and he is closing out his career with Joe Gibbs. I am looking forward to next season. It’s going to be interesting to see how both Tony and Ryan run under the Stewart Haas flag.
I am a little bummed that Kyle Busch didn’t make a better showing in this Chase. I mean he was hotter than habanero pepper and the next thing you know he is out of Chase contention. I still wonder what the Chase would have been like if it weren’t for his bad luck at the beginning of the Chase. I think I would be more into the Chase and it would definitely be more exciting.
Since the season will come to an end in a couple of weeks, I can finally get back to spending time with my friends and family who I have ignored since February as well as all those projects that need my attention. I have to say it’s been one interesting season. For the past two years I have held the Trixies to honor those events that have shaped the past NASCAR season. I am now in the process of reviewing the season and I hope to have them up sooner than I did last year, but you know how life can get in the way. In case you missed the 2006 or 2007 Trixies, you can stop back by The Park and take a gander. If you have any suggestions for the 2008 Trixies just leave me a note.
This is just too funny…trick or treating at Texas Motor Speedway.
