Weekend recap

What you missed whilst taking part in a Nazi-themed orgy... Hey, it was only Nazi-themed. There were no real Nazis...(That we know of, that is.)

-There were no earth-shattering surprises in the season-opener for your newly-merged IndyCar series. The Champ Car ex-pats were considerably off-pace (Servia was the highest finisher, P12, five laps down), and Scott Dixon took victory. Tony Kanaan was driving away from the field when he was collected by the spinning Ernesto Viso with seven laps to go, paving the way for Dixon. Little-Andretti looked strong, as did the Vision Racing guys (they qualified P2 and P3, only to be DQ'ed after inspection.- If Tony George's team can't understand the rulebook, how is anyone else supposed to?)

- The Sprint Cup race at Martinsville was boring, plus it looked really cold there. Denny Hamlin won. Read about it if you want, though we don't recommend it.

- The Craftsman Truck race on Saturday was more entertaining than the Cup race (though the same could be said about a Chelsey Lately rerun). Dennis Setzer won. Kyle Busch wrecked Johnny Benson out of second place, then Benson's crew tried to fight Busch while he was in his car after the race. It was rather humorous.

-The NHRA guys were in Houston. Antron Brown won Top Fuel. That would be pro-stock motorcycle-stud Antron Brown. Ashley Force made it to the finals in funny car. Then she lost.

- Grand Am was in Homestead. Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas won for Ganassi. Pruett said, "hi" to his family at home. Why don't they ever come to the track?
