All Star Race

Okay, for all of you that think Nascar is just a bunch of cars going round and round, go check out my sister's new website about stuff she likes. It's called my pretty purse. And whoever designed her site did an AWESOME job. Wink, wink.

Now on to last Saturday's all-star race. Basically, it was just a bunch of cars going round and round. The end.

Just kidding. Not really. But sort of. The festivities began with the burnout contest. Greg Biffle won. Apparently he was the only one of the five drivers involved that played by the rules. Then the Sprint Showdown began with Elliott Sadler on the pole. Someone got into Elliott big time on lap 6 and he headed to the garage. Boo. Elliott was not happy either: "If you take a look at the replay, you can tell what happened. The 84 just took us out. It's a shame. We had a fast race car and he got into us and just took us out." The top 2 finishers from the Showdown got to compete in the all-star race.

Then the all-star race began. It is raced in 4 segments of 25 laps each and is made up of previous all-star race winners plus a driver voted in by the fans. Am I explaining this all correctly? I hope so. Because I will be testing you all on this information in the near future, you know.

Kasey Kahne (the driver voted in by the fans) gets the win, Kyle Busch gets the red lantern, and we remain in Charlotte at Lowe's Motor Speedway for next Sunday's race.

  1. Thank you so much for explaining all of that to me! I did watch all of it, but did not understand it! I was about to send you an email and ask you to explain the "All Star Race" to me.
