Daytona 500

Last weekend was the first weekend of racing and I couldn't have been more excited! The truck race was Friday night and what a good race it was. Lots of competition, and of course Rowdy was in it so that makes it even better. He wasn't able to get it done though, and finished 2nd. The Busch race was pretty good on Saturday but once again, Kyle was 2nd on the last lap and just couldn't get it done.

Sunday I went down and picked Jay up and then we went to a bar in Tacoma where his parents were throwing a Daytona 500 party. They had raffles and there were several fantasy racing boards. The drivers I had from that were Michael Waltrip and Regan Smith, so I wasnt too optimistic to win any money. We had fun watching the race and heckling others about their drivers. Our fun ended when Dale Jr. took out the field, including Kyle who had dominated and led 88 laps so far. It was a huge dissapointment, not just because of Kyle, but also the other 10 cars that were involved.

I'm looking forward to Fontana, a track that Kyle has always done well at and got his first Cup victory at. And who knows, I may even be at the race in Vegas in 2 weeks!
