Gordon wins 500!

Daytona 500 Race Results

Little Josiah was sick last night and this morning with 102 degree fever. The lovely red head stayed home from church in the morning while I took Emma and Jonathan. After church I headed over with the older kids to their grandma and grandpa's to celebrate my birthday. Once we got there, I found out Emma had a fever as well. We came back home just in time for me to see the last restart and Jeff Gordon win! What a birthday present!

Here is how my guys finished:

Jeff Gordon - 1st
Joe Nemechek - 13th
Michael Waltrip - 37th
Greg Biffle - 25th

I was thinking it was going to be a great day with Gordon and Waltrip running up front for most of the day. Nemechek was doing an imitation of a yo-yo and kept going from the top 10 to the 20s and back. It was looking like I would have my three active drivers all in the top 10. Then Waltrip broke and Nemechek started fading. Then everybody else started messing up. Things started looking up again.

Then...what a finish (at least if you are a Gordon fan)! Emma and Josiah looked at me like I was going out of my mind. "Go, Gordon, Go!" That was after I was yelling at him earlier for going to the outside to try to pass Stewart, "No, Gordon, No!" I never thought I would say this, but "Thanks, Kurt!"

Here is how the league stands.

Boogity Boogity Boogity: 1 Win (379 pts.)
Pait Racing: 1 Win (371 pts.)
Bud_Man_Fan: 1 Win (348 pts.)
Driver_8_Fan: 0 Win (367 pts.)
