PARIS -- Lance Armstrong closed out his amazing career with a seventh consecutive Tour de France victory Sunday -- and did it a little earlier than expected.
Because of wet conditions, race organizers stopped the clock as Armstrong and the main pack entered Paris. Although riders were still racing, with eight laps of the Champs-Elysees to complete, organizers said that Armstrong had officially won.
The stage started as it has done for the past six years -- with Armstrong celebrating and wearing the race leader's yellow jersey.
Congrats to a guy who overcame a hell of a lot to be a sucess.
There IS the small matter of Stewart-Haas not having a Nationwide program. Whenever Tony and Ryan were running Nationwide races in '09 they were either in Hendrick, JR Motorsports, or Kevin Harvick Inc. cars.
