Weekend recap

What happened while you were watching the Final Four and thinking, "when do the Masters start? This shit is awful."

* The IndyCar Series hit the streets/runways of St. Petersburg. If qualifying was any indication (it was), Champ Car ex-pats were going to be a force. For Sunday, the rains came, Graham Rahal won, and the world was told a riveting tale about Oriol Servia and his passion for Salvador Dali. Plus, someone at ABC/ESPN thought it would be a good idea to let Brienne Pedigo do the victory lane interview. As per norm, she shit the bed. It was awful. Here are your results. Aside from Rahal, a big props to EJ Viso, finishing p4 for HVM.

*NASCAR's top two divisions were in action at the Texas Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards took Sunday's Cup race, besting Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin.

*It was Kyle Busch who took his first Nationwide event of the season. Watching either race was one non-stop cowboy related cliche, complete with Jeff Hammond in a cowboy hat. Pretty sweet.

* F1 raced in the Middle-East (presumably in the Green Zone), Max Mosley was not. Felipe Massa won, more impressively Robert Kubica finished third, lofting BMW to the top of the Constructors Championship.

* The ALMS was on the streets of St. Pete. Their race was dry. Results. Thumbs up for ABC/ESPN coverage. I hope you like this race, because it will be around for a while longer.
