Edwards holds off the boys…
Congratulations to Carl Edwards for fending off Mr. Gordon and Mr. Johnson who were absolutely dominating yesterday’s race before the rain delay. I am beyond impressed with the way the race finished today. You have Carl Edwards who stepped up his “A” game today to beat the three guys who to me seemed unstoppable yesterday. Jeff Gordon finsihed in second place with Jimmie Johnson riding on his coat tails. The one driver we need to keep our eye on throughout the season is Kyle Busch. He is officially leading the points after today’s race with a third place finish in Daytona and a fouth place finish in today’s Auto Club 500.
So Carl Edwards did an incredible job today driving by basically everyone who got in his way. He does admit though he was very fortunate to get by Jimmie Johson and claims that it was more like a drag race today
than a NASCAR race. Overall big ups to my boy Carl Edwards…. That’s one guy who can’t claim to have a case of the Mondays. I also have to give him credit for not breaking his neck on his successful back flip after the race. Do you think he practices? Does he get out of his car after each practice and attempts a back flip?
Anyway…. about that Rain Delay! NASCAR needs to have a better strategy the next time they decide to keep letting the guys get back on the track. It was more like a ‘slip and slide’ last night than a race track. In my opinion they should have realized they were losing more cars to crashes then they were getting around the track. I think next time download mp3 for free if the track is that saturated with water and the weather doesn’t look any better then they need to make an executive decision. But enough about my personal opinion about the matter… It’s not like I wasted my whole evening staying up watching the Simpsons.
What do you think about the rain delay? Do you think the 24 or 48 car could have been stopped if the race would have gone off without mp3 music a hitch last night?
