    What an ending. Saw it live in Fort Worth. Kasey Kahne was second to Kurt Busch by only .02 seconds. Nose to Nose. Kasey should have won though. He led almost the whole race, but he pitted and lost a lap due to a wreck and had to play catch up. He was seriously fast today. Oh yeah, I wore my Ferrari hat to the race to and I don't think any of those rednecks knew what the crest was for. LOL. My wife's M3 convertible was the star of the parking lot though. I was offered several coors lights in trade. LOL.

    Were you parked close in by Gate 4? I saw someone with a Fcar cap sitting in traffic in a greyish BMW convertible after the race. I was wearing my SF cap. We had a SF flag on our canopy out in the field, and someone came by this morning asking who won the Gran Prix.

    (I still don't know, haven't seen the TIVO yet)

    I only went to one NASCAR race & that's all it took. Agreed, a complete & total huckleberry YAWNFEST. I never could understand how someone can be a diehard fan of this sport, It reminds me of wrestling crossed with mass marketing. I had more fun watching some the drunk rednecks make asses of themselves.

    Geez, I just want to see ALMS come back to that track.

    This is the very definition of why the red and yellow flags of NASCAR are so bad for racing. One minute you are leading and walking the field, the next minute, you are a whole lap behind, and its not even remotely your fault.

    I see you're using your tele lens for more than just racecars when getting bored. Just like me.

    Look when you haul that big assed hunk of glass around the drunk rednecks (see first pix in my post) you have to make use of it.

    End of the day I enjoyed the Rednecks more than the racing
