Daytona 2011

"You must start with a positive attitude or you will surely end without one." ~Carrie Latet

Well....though Jr didn't win, I have to say it's nice to see some old faces and a new face in Victory Lane. The race was a bit boring...I'm not sure I'm a fan of this new "racing style" but that's just my opinion. I did get a good nap in!

Congratulations to Trevor Bayne driving for Virginia's very own...Woods Bros. to his FIRST win in 2 starts in the Winston Cup (I will forever have issues with that) Sprint Cup series.
This young man only met David Pearson YESTERDAY--the last man to win Daytona for the Woods Bros in 1976.
Shoot....he can't even enjoy the champagne being sprayed in Victory Lane!! But what a birthday present!!

Today's activities consisted of a 5 mile run; some laundry; some sewing and some knitting....oh yeah--and the nap!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!

I was routing for Jr the whole way. I was hoping this would finally be his year. I am still holding out for him.

As you know, I'm almost driverless these days. That might change. I've always had a soft spot for the Wood Brothers, and add in a polite, at this point humble YOUNG man... I hope there's a sponsor out there who will allow all of them to forge a year-long contract!

Now, we thought the 500 was way more exciting this year than it has been for YEARS past... hmmm.
