Those Who Cling to Religion & Guns Rejoice...Speedweek has officially Started

I am back in my element once again...Stationed in front of the 46 inch HDTV watching the NASCAR Budweiser Shootout!  Speedweek at Daytona Speedway has officially begun thus launching the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup season!

As usual, I am pulling for my boy Jeff Gordon to win, but it's not looking so good with 6 laps to go.  He's currently in 5th with 5 to go now.

Actually, I root for any one of the Hendrick drivers to win along with anyone that drives for Stewart/Haas Racing because they run their cars with....Hendrick motors of course!

2 laps to go and Ryan Newman is leading....

White flag is out and Jeffy boy has fallen to 7th...

Newman still leading and comes around but now it looks like Denny Hamlin and won the shootout!

Nix that, looks like they're giving the race to the number 22 Penzoil  car of Kurt Busch due to Denny Hamlin making the pass below the yellow line!

I can't wait to see the 53rd running of the Daytona 500!  Hopefully with the resurfacing of the track, there won't be the long race delay like last year due to a hole in the track.

Congratulations to Kurt Busch on his winning the 2011 NASCAR Budweiser Shootout!
