The Bud Shootout 2010

Posted by Amy in General

Well Tony pulled lucky number 13 (although not lucky according to Tony) in the Shootout draw…but he didn’t stay 13th for very long. He quickly moved forward and stayed strong in the front of the field. He also made one of the coolest moves sneaking through the middle of two on that march towards the front. Tony even led some laps (yey). I didn’t love Brian Vickers and Tony getting together in the last segment and Tony slapping the wall. Unfortunately he ended 9th I think (results are still unofficial as of this writing). It was encouraging to see Tony out so strong in the shootout. I have high hopes for Daytona…I would LOVE for Tony to finally win the elusive 500.

My only issue is that I read that the Shootout MUST end under a green flag- so I was pretty sure that Harvick had not actually won but I guess he actually did. I guess it was considered a green-white-checker finish rule? I was a little confused about that. Congrats to Harvick on his win!

I am so excited that the season is starting….let’s go boys!

    According to what I read from Kasey Kahne either on Twitter or MySpace, they say they’d do the green-white-checker rule during the drivers’ meeting.
    I’m hoping Tony can pull a win out of his hat for Daytona 500 as well. :) It seems to elude him every year. :(

    I was wondering about that rule as well. Smoke looked strong all night but what happened in that last pit stop and where was Newman last night?
