Last Turn; Last Lap – Indy Racing Style ;-)

Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton, the dark skinned British phenomenon who won the F-1 Championship on the last turn of the last lap. On my local news last night the sportscaster referred to him as the first ‘African American’ to win that title. I guess that is what all USA-centric refer to one of any nationality who has dark skin. Amazing. He certainly made the F-1 season interesting, and he beat Ferrari.

 

NASCAR was at Eddie Gossage’s great track outside Ft. Worth, and Carl Edwards won a fuel gamble. That made the ‘chase’ a little more interesting. Dale Jr. made some interesting pre-race comments about the NASCAR schedule; he believes there should be just 28 annual events, and all of them on Sunday afternoons. Given the economy and the likelihood that up to 1,000 everyday working stiffs in NASCAR could lose their jobs in a few weeks, that may not be a bad idea.

 

The season really is about over. Turn your attention tomorrow toward VOTING. Election day this time is far more compelling than it has been in decades.
