omg

This is how the thought process went, for the last lap and a half

- the Belgian is finally pitting, but Dario and this JR guy can't have enough fuel either

- Dario's done, does this JR guy have enough?

- I think he might have enough!

- Even if he doesn't have enough, he might have a big enough lead

- yea, he can totally cruise in on fumes as long as he makes these last two turns

- hey, diabetes guy made it the whole race, JR just needs to go around him

- he's made it around...wait, he's still going around

- HOLY CRAP HE CRASHED INTO THE WALL ON THE LAST TURN

- HE'S STILL ROLLING TOWARDS THE FINISH LINE! HE MAY PULL THIS OFF!

- oh no there's Wheldon

- wait, how did Wheldon get in second???

- well he's in first now and just won!

In summary: pretty good!

I know this was made for the 500 in particular but wow, what a great day for racing. I got to see all three major races (F1 at Monaco, Indy 500, and NASCAR at Charlotte) and all were thrilling to watch. The end of Indy was unbelievable and I didn't think anything could top Hillebrand crashing into the last corner of the last lap. NASCAR nearly topped that with Junior being so, so close to finally ending his winless streak only to run out of gas in the final lap. I'm not a big Junior fan but I can't imagine anyone not rooting for him at that last lap and feeling a bit breathless at the ending. Even F1, which can be a bit of a bore at times, was an incredible race in beautiful Monaco with the tightest action I have seen between first and third (Vettel/ Alonso/ Button) in a long time. Overall, it may have been the most entertaining day of Motorsports I have ever seen.

I was looking for Scott Dixon so I completely overlooked Wheldon even being in the mix.

And then, to top off the awesome day of racing (although I wish the Monaco GP hadn't had the red flag, especially since the three leaders all got through that wreck), Junior and the National Guard nearly pulled off the 500/600 double. As it was the National Guard pulled off the "leading headed into the fourth turn of the last lap"-double.

I guess the final question is "did Hildebrand choke?" I don't think he did. If Kimball isn't there and JR was just making the last corner unimpeded and he slams the wall? Choke. This was just an unfortunate turn of circumstance for him.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

They should've let them race back to the line. The Roush Fords looked really fast and next Sunday should be awesome. Note to drivers: Avoid the 12 car at all costs. Geez.
