NASCAR and MotorSports – From a Queer Perspective

Schadenfreude Kyle Busch

Guitar Smashing, Cry baby Kyle Bush in the number #18 missed the chase – only separated by 8 points from Greg Biffle . Now there is an argument to be made that someone with that many wins should be in the Chase – and I am not sure I totally disagree….  but that is NASCAR’s issue to deal with.

Being a Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne mark – I did not have much vested in the Richmond race,  but that certainly was a great track to have one of tightest races to the Chase we’ve seen in years.

Richmond is my second favorite short track – it would blaspheme for me not claim Bristol as the all time fav – but more on my Bristol Banking thoughts in another post – Richmond truly is the “super-speedway” of the short tracks; 2 and 3 wide, good pits, and lots of tradition.   I hope they keep Richmond as the Chase Deciding Track.

It was excited to see Mark Martin on the pole – what a season the #5 has had – will the Cinderella story continue through Homestead giving Martin his first Cup Championship??  I am betting no, but it does sound like a good script for a sequel – the return of Cole Trickle?

Notables:

  • Lil’ Hottie Joey Logano finshed as the top rookie in 14th place – I was always afraid that he would start to get uglier as he aged – but he’s staying cute for now.
  • Denny Hamlin for the win!
  • Juan Pablo Montoya – come one people; all the haters saying the open wheelers could not compete – 3 seasons worth of “practice” and your in the chase……
  • Brian Vickers – thanks for keeping Kyle out :-)
  • Carl Edwards – even on a broken foot – nice work!  ….now take of your shirt more often please!
  • uber Hottie Kasey Kahne nice top 15 finish and you looked damn fine doing it
