Ryan Newman will be starting numero uno Sunday in the Coca Cola 600 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte. Tony Stewart, Newman's owner, won the All Star race there last weekend so wouldn't it be nice for Ryan to get his first Cup win for the new team there this weekend. The 600 is an endurance race, starting in the afternoon and ending way into the night, but starting up front is a good thing.
And I see Bill Elliott is starting 10th. He can still wheel a car around the track! Awesome Bill from Dawsonville! How cool would it be to see him win one more time!
One more thought early this morning--I think it is time for Jr., one of my favorite drivers, to start winning consistently (3-5 times a year) or for Mr. Hendrick to move Jr.'s cousin Tony out of the crew chief chair. All the other Hendrick teams are doing much better than Jr. and it is time for him and his team to perform. He will always be a favorite of mine but the time to win is now.
Enjoy the racing weekend. Lot's of DVR storage will be taken up with Indy, Coca Cola 600, and other racing from around the country.
