Another race is in the can.
With 22 laps to go, I got a text from a friend: ?Competition caution soon?. Although Nascar let the race play out ( as they are wont to do ), this text says a lot about their reputation.
When was the last time the 24 went 2 laps down due only to handling?
Speaking of golf: I looked up ?pretentiousness? in the dictionary and found all things The Masters. Didn?t keep me from spending a lot of time watching, though.
4.10/12.56: Speedy Thompson won at Columbia and Spartanburg. Jr. Johnson came in third at Spartanburg in his first race back from a 1 year ?vacation? in Chillicothe, OH.
4.8.71: Columbia, SC; Neil Castles finished 9th in ?The Free Lt. Calley Special? Dodge.
If Ned were in the booth we?d know what?s up with Hank Parker, Jr.
