I love that Crown Royal, NASCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway have joined forces over the last several years to name the Brickyard 400 race after a hero. The Brickyard 400 will be called:

The John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard!

Okay- well technically the full name of the race is Crown Royal Presents the John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com but that is too much of a mouthful to me so I say The John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard it is. (more…)

Qualified: 5th!

Finished: 4th!

Race Winner: Ryan Newman!

Points After Indianapolis: 11th- one point out of tenth, and 182 points out of first! We are still currently in wild card position and knocking on the door of the top ten again when it comes to the Championship Chase standings!

My Mood After Indianapolis: Pleased it was a good points day for Tony! Pleased that it was a good day for Stewart-Haas Racing because Ryan Newman won! I think you could just say pleased all around!

This is apparently the post of the exclamation points so you will have to excuse me for that.

Apparently I inadvertently gave Ryan Newman good luck last night by posting about him the fact that he not only was on the pole for his home track race but that he did it with a new track record. I also happened to mention his partnership with Oral B Built In The USA¬† and Oral B’s pledge of $100,000 to Hope For The Warriors. So of course the only reason Ryan won was because I happened to post about him on the night before he had raced his obviously already screaming hot Chevy. Hey don’t burst my bubble! (more…)
