I think I may actually watch the race. It will the second race I've watched. Only reason is my sinuses are killing me, it's nasty outside anyway. Might as well take today as a rest day and just hold the couch down.

I said Gentlemen, so you need not worry about getting your engine started. Go have a muffin.

I happened to flip to the race as they restarted with two laps to go. I thought it was cool that that one car finished the race upside down. Other than that, I really don't get 'NeckCar.

Real racing involves speeds below 120 MPH, turns both left and right, gravel and dirt with little stretches of tarmac, and plenty of hangtime.

Roundy rounders? Meh. F1? Getting there. WRC? That's the stuff.

Mark Martin made a solo break for the finish, but he got caught by the leadout from the RCR Team, and as beaten to the line by Harvick. =/

What happened to the WRC? It used to be on Speed, but I haven't seen it on in awhile (A year).

That was a great ride...for both Levi and Jason Donald. Kinda ticked me off when Bobke's sidekicks started talking like Donald's time HAD to be a timekeeper screwup. Lord forbid that a unknown rider could actually have a great ride on his own merit.
