I have to admit- I wasn’t crying in my soup when Hornish collected Jimmie Johnson in that wreck on lap three. Talk about the break the chase needed. It allowed Tony and Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin to stay close. I know that Jimmie just needs to finish forth or better the next two races but it just proves that THINGS HAPPEN! It’s not all locked in yet- so hold your horses people. Tony started 4th at Texas and finished a strong finished 6th…despite fighting an ill handling car- Tony is 178 out of the lead in 5th place. Teammate Ryan Newman finished 12th, dropping him to 9th in the standings.
Race winner was Kurt Busch who by way of his win gave the Dickies American Worker of the Year Michael McGee an additional million dollars. How cool is that?
I am a little late in posting about Race 8 because I have been busy getting ready to head to race 9. Yep that is right- I leave tomorrow for Vegas and then I leave Vegas on Thursday for PIR.
