Weekend recap

What you missed while pre-gaming Shark Week.

The Brickyard 400 was a joke. It resembled a series of Mickey Mouse 10-lap sprint races because Goodyear can't build a proper racing tire. Tony Stewart was right all along. Jimmie Johnson won the race. We feel sorry for any fan in attendance who had to pay money to view that race. They deserve refunds. Period.

NASCAR needs to step up to prevent future debacles

The IndyCar Series braved the frozen tundra and 15 meter snow drifts of Canada to compete in Edmonton. Scott Dixon won the race (fifth of year) and solidified his points lead with four races to go. Paul Tracy made the best of his one-off to finish p4. Justin Wilson has his best showing of the year, tallying a p3.

NHRA's "Western Swing" ended on Sunday, with Tony Schumacher sweeping the west-of-the-Rockies Top Fuel competitions. The Sarge has locked up the #1 spot in the Countdown standings and technically does not need to race until after the U.S. Nationals when the Countdown begins. We're thinking he'll race. Other pro winners include Robert Hight (FC), Dave Connolly (PSC) and Matt Guidera (PSB).

The Nationwide Series was at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Kyle Busch proved that despite restrictions in horsepower, Toyota is still the class of the field. Busch posted Toyota’s 15th win of 2008, with 14 coming from Joe Gibbs Racing. Colin Braun sat on the pole and finished a career best p2. Cheers to the ex- Grand Am'er.

Congratulations to JJ on his win. On another note, This was by far the worst race of the year. They should have called it "The Goodyear Caution Flag 400."
That would have been perfect.
On different note; Has anyone seen the Danica Patrick Video at It has a talk show spoof Video? on it. It's pretty funny. The reason why I'm telling you this is that she might be getting a real talk show. How crazy is that getting a real show off a spoof show. Only in America Only in America!
