Weekend recap

What you missed while trying to simultaneously watch the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals.

-There was a motor racing event this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana. 500-miles were contested and Scott Dixon was victorious. RB'ers summary is one post below. (How convenient.) A more "professional" race-recap is here (like with no spelling errors, or illusions to pubic hair).

-NASCAR had its biannual home-race at Lowe's Motor Speedway. The Cup event on Sunday evening was won by Kasey Kahne (he won the All-Star event last weekend, as well), after Tony Stewart blew a tire while leading with three-laps to go. Goddamn Goodyear.

-Kyle Busch won Saturday night's Nationwide event (that's his forth of the season). Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski got into it on the track, then their crew's had a donnybrook on pitlane. Sweet.

That kind of makes Patrick v. Briscoe look pretty tame.

Busch wins at Lowe's to snap Gibbs' victory streak

-Rookie Donny Lia won the NASCAR Craftsman Truck race at Mansfield Motorsports Park. It was his first series win and the first for TRG Motorsports (TRG as in, The Racers Group. As in, the Porsche-guys. Good for them).

-Lewis Hamilton won the Monaco GP. We were busy sleeping one off and know nothing more. Let the Speedtv-guys explain the happenings.

-Banner Racing (Paul Edwards and Kelly Collins) won Monday's Grand-Am GT Classic at Lime Rock Park. That is the duo's third victory of the season. This was a GT only affair, so, nobody won DP!

Banner Scores a Third!
