Points Race 22: Watkins Glen

Posted by Amy in General

Mother nature dealt us fans who work on Mondays an evil blow by raining out our Sunday NASCAR race for the second week in a row. BAH!  The race was run on Monday starting at noon (time local to the race- not to me).  Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch it- and I won’t get to- because I somehow forgot to DVR it completely. Not like last week when I DVR’d the wrong channel…this week I didn’t dvr a damn thing.  So of course Tony would win! Don’t get me wrong- I am ecstatic he won…just disappointed I didn’t get to watch.

All I can say about the race right now is that the Sam Hornish, Jeff Burton, Jeff Gordon wreck was NASTY looking. That I did see. I was glad to hear the drivers get out- and in the snippet of the video that I saw- Jeff Gordon was one pissed off camper. And I don’t blame him.  I am sure that did nothing for his back to be collected in someone else’s wreck (I can’t tell in the snippet I saw if it was Kasey Kahne’s fault or Sam Hornish’s fault…according to my friend who was watching the race- it was Kasey’s).  I also heard that the Team Old Spice/Office Depot pit crew did awesome on their stops! Way to go!!

Notes On The Glen:

  • Honestly I don’t really have any.  What do the drivers do when a race is moved to Monday? Do they just sit around in their Momohomes (yes my nephew has a new word…momohome- and he actually points to motorhomes and motorcoaches and says it which is very exciting) and watch TV/ Play video games? I would think that would get old- unless you REALLY like video games.

Next week: Back to Michigan!
