Kiss Those Bricks Tony!!!!!

What a fabulous race today at the famed Indianapolis Speedway. Tony really had a great car and was so fun to watch racing. I love the Indy track. I used to go there for class field trips in 5th and 6th grades to watch practices for the Indy 500. Growing up in Tony's hometown, and attending school with him, I know how much he loves racing and winning in general, but especially at this track. And now he's done it twice!!! Woo Hoo!!! I love watching him and am so excited that he is so successful at what he has always loved to do.

My favorite moments of the race:
1. With 12-15 laps to go, Tony says on the car radio, "Here Kitty, Kitty," in reference to #29 Kevin Harvick, then in the lead.

2. After passing Harvick for the lead, Tony takes both hands off wheel going down the backstretch close, if not over 200mph in order to take a drink. How calm must you be to do that?!?!?!?

3. At the end when interviewed by the reporter who asked how this win compared with his first Brickyard 400 win two years ago, Tony replied, "This one is for all those fans who root for me every weekend and put up with all the b---s----."

Thanks for winning it for me Tony! I'll always root for you every weekend. Now I'm just a little bummed that David and I went last year to this race and our least favorite driver won. But I at least got to watch this one on tv, unlike the Chicago race Tony won two weeks ago and I was at a picnic.

And just for Barb the Evil Genius, "Go Twins!" :-) It was a great day for sport watching in our household!
