Talladega Nights and Days

Monday, April 27, 2009

First, I have to congratulate Brad Keselowski for his first Sprint Cup victory yesterday. Obviously, he's got to be feeling a-okay today.

However, that race is going to be remembered for all those heart-stopping crashes. I didn't get home until the last hour, but that meant I got to see the grand finale. I cannot believe Carl Edwards's presence of mind. To go flying up in the air, crash into the fence, do a couple spins with rollovers thrown in for good measure, and then have the car burst into flames...he gets out of the car and runs to cross the finish line in homage to Will Ferrell's 'Talladega Nights'.

Ohmygosh. WAY TO GO, CARL!!!!!!! Like everyone else in the stands, I stood up and applauded. The Official Site of Carl Edwards

Great race. A thrill a minute. :) Carol
