Race Cars At A Presidential Library and Tony’s Momentum

Posted by Amy in General | NASCAR

So first I want to thank you all for the overwhelming comments about the Musings On Being A Tony Stewart Fan series (especially the first one which judging by comments, tweets and facebook mentions it was obviously your favorite…it was my favorite of the series too).  I was delighted at the positive response from both other Tony Stewart fans and fans of other drivers!  I spent some time linking all three articles so that you can easily scroll between them.

Speaking of updating, I realized that it has been awhile (like February) since I updated the BEST OF BG section in the navigation bar- so I took a couple minutes and updated that too. If you have a favorite post and think it should be included in the BEST OF BG highlight box feel free to let me know and I will consider adding it.

So did you all have fun during the “off” weekend?  I did. While the Musings On Being A Tony Stewart Fan series were coming out on their scheduled dates (I love the schedule feature of WordPress)  I was off in Southern California celebrating Misty’s birthday in gridlock traffic (in all seriousness though- we always have fun wherever we may be).  Let’s just say it took us a little more than an hour to get to where our hotel was in Orange County to the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA and over three hours to get back.  I enjoyed the Reagan library in its entirety but the racing exhibit at the end made it all the better.

One this I did NOT like about the Off weekend?  I felt it broke up the momentum Stewart-Haas was naturally carrying from the 1-2 Loudon finish.  Momentum that I am sure would be welcome at a place like the Brickyard! Tony Stewart, however, kept his momentum going by winning his very first WoO (World Of Outlaws) race ever.  Needless to say he was happy:

Let’s hope that is momentum that will carry Tony to his third Brickyard win on Sunday!
