A wild and crazy night

It was a weird night at Lowes Motor Speedway. I came into the night expecting to get plastered by Super_D. It was a foregone conclusion that BBuck would win his matchup. The expectation was that I would come out of the evening behind BBuck.

Well, that isn't what happened. Jimmie Johnson led the way for my fantasy team and finished second. Kyle Busch fought his way through the field more than once to place sixth. Yep, Mark Martin got turned into the wall and went to the garage in thirtieth. Because of the top ten finishes of the Hendrick cars it didn't matter.

Super_D ran into trouble early on and couldn't recover. Kurt Busch was the first to run into trouble and though he ended the race running, it was in thirty-second place. Matt Kenseth, who had his own multiple issues in the night, had the best place finish with fourteenth. Ryan Newman struggled as well rolling across the line sixty-two laps off the pace in twenty-seventh.

However, the strangest thing is that BBuck lost to GetAFreeRide! Tony Raines has a surprisingly good night to finish seventh. Todd Bodine, who you don't even expect to be in the show, showed up and took home nineteenth. Kyle Petty did his normal ride and finished in twenty-second place. All the while, BBuck's best finisher was Tony Stewart, who was one lap down. Denny Hamlin wrecked very early on and came back on the track to salvage some points and Kevin Harvick limped home with fourth gear only. All in all, it was enough to give GetAFreeRide "his" first win of the year.

Jeff Gordon was proving me a liar until a few laps to go when his engine blew. The funny thing was my heart skipped a beat because I figured that would give Super_D a chance to beat me. Then I remembered that I had benched Gordon. Whew! Well, he can hang up the championship for sure now. Thankfully, I'm still in the hunt.
