Usually Stewart would have at least had another go at unsettling Gordon's car, and Gordon would have reciprocated. That's NASCAR isn't it? While I am a fan of panel damage, Tony Stewart had nothing for Jeff Gordon at the end, so I guess the best car did win. Hack! Man, that stuck in my throat.
Today's race was a bit of a bonus. I'd assumed it was going to be a Monday morning job and I was going to miss it. The power company is installing a new transformer over the road and we are having our power cut all day. I only lucked onto the Phoenix race by checking the channel guide. The gods were smiling on me this lunchtime.
The V8 Supercars are also on. It's the final race at New Zealand's Pukekohe race circuit, so it's been an ass-on-couch type of weekend. This is the series where the GT, which is the top-of-the-range version of my model Ford Falcon XR8 (or ones vaguely resembling them) is competing - so I always check it it. It's a two-make series between Ford and Holden (GM owned, and designers of the new Pontiac GTO). Holden won again, but they always do at Pukekohe. No big deal. Cheating, robbing bastards!
