Getting what I deserve

Auto Club 500 Results

Rats! After all my fears that I was going to get blown out in today's NASCAR race, it was looking like I was going to go into week 3 with two wins under my belt. Even though Nemechek had engine trouble early, my man Biffle was leading the race and Gordon was doing what Gordon does -- moving to the front. It was kind of nip and tuck as Earnhardt had trouble early leaving me in at battle with Driver 8 Fan's two top guys; Johnson and Kenseth.

Then Kenseth blew a tire! Yes! I started gloating. Maybe I shouldn't have. Because hardly any laps passed before Gordon suffered the same problem that at least four Hendrick cars experienced. It appears a valve stem broke. That put Gordon on seven cylinders. I started watching the points spread shrink -- lower and lower. Had Gordon been able to avoid the black flag and stay on the lead lap I might have had a chance. However, Johnson sealed the deal by coming home in second place. I lost to Driver 8 Fan by a margin of 332 to 314. I call it: Payback for my gloating.

Still, I feel pretty good about my chances this year. My guys have won both races so far. All of them have shown that they can run up front. Once the engine stuff settles down -- which it will -- my team will get me back in the hunt. Wow, and to think I almost sat Biffle for Waltrip...
