Weekend recap

What you missed while watching the slow, yet inevitable, implosion of the New York Metropolitans.

Kansas Speedway played host to the NASCAR contingent of round track racers. On Sunday, "Hot" Carl Edwards' attempted to slide-job Jimmie Johnson final lap/final turn. It worked, for a few hundred yards, until Johnson went under the cushion-hopping Edwards for the win. Greg Biffle rounded out the top-3. The Chase standings mirror those top-3. Cheers to AJ Allmendinger, who tallied a career-best p9, in what was likely his last race with Red Bull Racing.

Joe Gibbs Racing has continued its dominance of the Nationwide Series, which is good for them, as they now suck in Cup competition. (JGR drivers hold the final three spots in Chase standings.) Denny Hamlin won the Kansas N'Wide race on Saturday. Points leader Clint Bowyer finished second.

When F1 goes night racing in Singapore, two things happen. #1: High end prostitutes make a killing on oil magnates. And #2: Varsha, Hoobs and Matchett have an interweb-only talk about the goings-on. Enjoy.

Tony Schumacher got back to his winning ways on Sunday by beating Doug Herbert in the finals at the NHRA Mid-South Nationals. Tim Wilkerson (FC), Mike Edwards (PSC) and Craig Treble (PSB) were the other pro winners.

ARCA was road racing in Jersey (finalist for the strangest sentence of the day). Justin Allgaier won the rain-shortened event. Scott Speed finished eighth and retains the points lead going into Talladega.

Let us all make it a point to have an outstanding race week. Go Phillies. Fuck the Brewers.
