I do love racing. Even though the race is only a few hours away from me this week, I still have yet to go to the track. Today, I didn't even watch the race.
As the race came to a close, my husband started hollering for me to come there. He doesn't even like NASCAR, but he was switching back and forth from the motorcycle races to the NASCAR today. That is probably why I didn't get into the race today.
As I dragged my lazy behind in to see why he was hollering, I was really dreading what it was. I actually thought it might be about the motorcycles. It was actually the end of the Talladega race. It was definitely an exciting one, but not the winner I would have preferred. Yes, I am a Carl Edward's fan. I like several others too, but he holds a dear spot in my heart. He worked for awhile as a substitute teacher.
Whether you are a fan or not, I would suggest turning on the news or searching for theÂ video of the ending of the race. It is amazing that Carl Edwards was not hurt. He even was quite gracious during an after race interview. Not sure I would have been able to even talk! Yeah, it is that dramatic.
There seems to be a few fans hurt, but not as serious as it could have been. Take a look and you will see what I mean. Even if you are not a fan of NASCAR, you will be amazed at the relatively small number of injuries.
