Weekend recap

Rough estimates tell us this past weekend featured 300+ hours of televised college basketball. With this many options to keep folks entertained (plus a fairly slow racing weekend), it is safe to say racing may have taken a backseat. So, here is what you missed while kicking yourself for not taking Davidson to the Sweet-16 in your office pool. -In case you wondered, Ridebuyer's bracket was mathematically eliminated when Coppin St. lost the play-in game. Fuckin' Mt. St. Mary's.

- Kimi Raikkonen won the second round of the F1 world championship in Malaysia. More interesting than who won: Robert Kubica (BMW-Sauber) finished second. Here is your top-10:

1) Raikkonen, Ferrari, 1h31:18.555
2) Kubica, BMW Sauber, +19.570
3) Kovalainen, McLaren-Mercedes, +38.450
4) Trulli, Toyota, +45.832
5) Hamilton, McLaren-Mercedes, +46.548
6) Heidfeld, BMW Sauber, +49.833
7) Webber, Red Bull-Renault, +1:08.130
8) Alonso, Renault, +1:10.041
9) Coulthard, Red Bull-Renault, +1:16.220
10) Button, Honda, +1:26.214

-Kyle Busch managed to grasp defeat from the jaws of victory (again) in the Nationwide Series race in Nashville. Cheers to Scott Wimmer for getting his first NASCAR-sanctioned victory since 2003, also the first win by a non-Cup regular in a Nationwide race this season. Here is your top-10:

1) Scott Wimmer
2) Clint Bowyer
3) Carl Edwards
4) Brad Keselowski
5) Kelly Bires
6) David Stremme
7) Denny Hamlin
8) Cale Gale*
9) David Reutimann
10) Bobby Hamilton Jr

*Ridebuyer does not have a clue who this is, but clearly Cale Gale is our new favorite racing driver. Ever. Period.
