It's Tony Stewart's Day
Tony Stewart won his second Allstate Brickyard 400. I went to the race today with a couple of friends. The endless number of yellow laps made for a long afternoon. The only interesting thing that happened where I was sitting in the Southwest Vista was when a Dale Earnhardt, Jr. fan sitting several rows below me decided to toss a full, 16-ounce can of Miller Lite onto the track when Dale made a green light pit stop. If the fan's goal was to bring out the yellow caution light, it didn't work. Cars zoomed past the can laying in the middle of the track for several laps until someone finally flattened it without incident. I had to laugh when Dale's engine blew on lap 136 near the end of the race while he was still running in 5th place. He finished 34th.
