Nascar Update

Posted on: October 8, 2008

Tony Stewart once again found home at the winners circle at Talladega Speedway during the AMP Energy 500. Now when someone talks about NASCAR people always seem to fall asleep unless they are from the South or between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. For me, however, that’s not the case. This had to be the most exciting race I have ever seen; 28 different leaders (a NASCAR record); four blown tires and a few exciting and scary crashes. Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon, two of NASCAR’s best, were sent to hospital where they were kept over night after being involved in two of the crashes. With this win Tony Stewart will jump four spots up to seventh place trailing Jimmie Johnson by just 203 points. With only a few races left it looks like it will come down to the wire, Jimmie Johnson only leads the back flip maniac Carl Edwards by 71 points.
