Third race of the day - this time it's NASCAR's turn
On this Memorial Day weekend, if you are inside watching TV, here's hoping it's because it's raining....or that you are a really devoted fan of racing.
It isn't raining here, so I'm sneaking in a round of golf before the big race starts, but I'll be here along with you to watch and wonder at the spectacle we are about to witness.
It's hot in Charlotte today, much as it is in Indianapolis, and Mark Martin has already tweeted that he spent the last 24 hours carbo loading and hydrating himself to fuel up for the big race. I'm sure the rest of the drivers are adopting similar strategies, but we will see who has best prepared for the race, probably as the last 500 miles get underway.
It promises to be a grueling day, but any one of the favorites could be poised to take the checkers at the end. With Aric Almirola on the pole, and his teammate, Marcos Ambrose alongside, it is a huge day for Richard Petty Motorsports. It could be even better, if one of the two manages to reach the checkers first. They will have to get around the likes of Jimmie Johnson, who won last week, Dale Jr., who is going to win, any day now, Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth, or Greg Biffle. All have been strong this season, and it truly is anyone's race.
As DW will say, "Boogity Boogity Boogity! Let's go racing!"
