Bank Of America 500 @ Lowe’s MotorspeedwayPosted by in General
As I am typing this- there is 6 laps to go and the race is just now going green again. My beloved Tony is in 13th. Race is under yellow and we are waiting for what will hopefully be the final waving of the green flag. My Tony has been having a race. Not a good race. But a race indeed.
He qualified in 29th. He had slowly and methodically worked his way all the way up to 5th. Then…there was not one but TWO mishaps on the same pitstop. EXCUSE ME…I HAVE TO YELL AT THE TV. ITS UNDER YELLOW….AGAIN BUT WE ARE UP TO 9th right now. Be back after the race…sorry this is just too damn good to blog during! Ahh ok we are over. Tony ended upcoming in 7th because of some people having problems. Why one of those problems couldn’t be Jeff Gordon running out of gas I do not know. Anyway…you really have to hand it to Greg Zipadelli and the whole 20 crew….instead of letting Tony get way down in the field due to some fairly extensive right front damage…they worked very hard to get the car back into the shape that Tony needed it to be in to work his way back up into 7th. If the race was any longer I bet Tony would have placed even higher.
I will tell you what…one of the cooler things about DirecTv hotpass…is I love being able to see what is going on in the pits. Like watching the 20 pit crew plan out the repairs to make…I just wish I could have heard what was going on…because that stuff fascinates me…immensely.
