Ok- first off? This time change sucks for me. I think I am the opposite of most people who like this time change-this one really screws up my internal clock royally. This morning for instance? I woke up at 2:45 am. Fun times. Just when I get back into the swing of a normal sleep pattern it will be time to switchover. Oh well.
So I just have a couple things to discuss today:
- First off is the whole Rookie of the Year battle royale that is going on right now in the NASCAR Cup Series. Sam Hornish Jr. was leading Regan Smith by a measley two points after the Atlanta race last weekend (results haven’t been updated for this past race). The reason for bringing this up is that I am surprised that Hornish, JR is doing better than Regan Smith- my overall impression of the two is that Regan is doing better than Hornish, Jr. Well apparently I am wrong there.
- I was fairly impressed with Brad Keselowski’s cup debut. He finished 19th- not bad for never starting in a cup car before. Unfortunately Joey “sliced bread” Logano was not so lucky. He finished a mere 40th. I have a feeling that if NASCAR hadn’t parked Gilliland he would have been even lower.
- Not only did Carl Edwards win the race at Texas Motorspeedway but he is also the recipient of that race’s Gillette Young Guns TimeShaver of the race. He edged out his closest competitor Clint Bowyer by quite a bit…so this week the competition wasn’t even close. Denny, Kasey, Ryan and Kurt were all disqualified for not being on the lead lap.
- I am going to admit right now that I don’t follow other racing series as closely as I should. Because of the later start for the Texas race- I was lacking for something to watch on TV in the morning as I did my laundry and other things- and ended up landing on SpeedTV watching the F1 race in Brazil. It was quite an exciting end with the rain coming into the picture and fact that all Lewis Hamilton had to do to win the World Championship at Brazil was finish fifth or higher…and with a late last lap pass of Timo Glock. This made Lewis, at 23, the youngest F1 World Championship driver. Congrats.
I wanted to write about Halloween today too- but with NaBloPoMo this month I am going to spread the wealth a little and not post about that until tomorrow.
