As you might have guessed by the time of this entry, I was in between configuring my computer, watching the Nascar race at Altlanta Motor Speedway and eating junk food all day. When I finally looked up and saw it was dark outside I knew I was in trouble. But never you worry! I got some stuff for 'ya today.
Jimmie Johnson won his second consecutive Nascar race today at Atlanta Motor Speedway, beating Tony Stewart to the finish line. A minor controversy ensued when it appeared that Johnson squeezed Stewart (which he did) with two laps to go and caused Stewart to brush the wall. The end result, as it appeared to me, was that Johnson had the faster car and the brushing incident was attributed to hard racing and nothing more. Columbian Juan Pablo Montoya finished a respectful 5th position.
The Pictures: I saw this today in my daily Internet trek and thought I'd show it to you. It struck me as funny.
