Well no three in a row for Matt Kenseth. After winning two straight races, he finished in last place because of a blown engine. Jack Rousch had 3 blown engines in the race. David Ragan blew an engine and finished 42nd. Carl Edwards blew an engine with 2 laps to go but he was able to finish the race and get a fairly decent finish. Kyle Busch won the race on his home track. Clint Bowyer had another good run and finished 2nd. Richard Childress Racing had a pretty good day with Bowyer 2nd and Jeff Burton finishing in 3rd place. David Reutiman had a great run and finished 4th.I was really happy to see Bobby Labonte have a good run and finish 5th. Greg Biffle had a solid 7th place finish. Jamie McMurray finally had some good luck and finished 9th. Joey Lagono finally showed some of his promise and finished in 13th place. I think Lagono has a ton of talent and will win a couple of championships in his career. I don’t think he’ll win a race this year but I definitely think he’ll win at least one race next year. Matt Kenseth fell from 1st to 3rd in points due to his engine problems. Jeff Gordon is leading the points standings so far this year. He’s had a pretty good start to his year. Clint Bowyer is a surprise in 2nd in the points standings especially since he’s with a new team. David Reutiman is currently 5th in the points standings. Tony Stewart is also having a great year and is currently in 9th in points. It was really cool to have a race named for Caroll Shelby who has been an automotive genius for many years. I loved the Shelby pace cars they were really neat looking. I would love to own one of the Shelby Mustangs he has created over the years. I can’t wait for the Atlanta race it’s the fastest track on the circuit.
