forty-three drivers and he has to win?

(Photo Credit: John Harrelson/Getty Images for NASCAR)Yes, the Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca-Cola at Daytona International Speedway was a good race. It was intriguing and crazy right down to the last lap, but of course I hated how it ended.

Why, why, why did he have to win again?? WHY?? If the rest of the season plays out like this I don’t know what I’m going to do. It’s sooo boring if the same person keeps winning. Yes, he’s talented and all that, yes, I get it. I can appreciate that fact but it’s so freaking boring to watch. I don’t want to hear the same person in victory lane each week. Even if it was Dale Earnhardt Jr. I promise you I would be bored with that too. It wouldn’t be painful to watch of course but it would be boring.

The coolest thing was seeing David Gilliland running up front. That was truly awesome; I only wonder what could have happened had his pit stop not gone so bad. And see that’s what I’m looking for people, I’m not just out to see Dale Jr. win I wanna see a variety of drivers win. It helps to keep things interesting. If it ever comes to a time when NASCAR only has 4 major teams running several cars, shutting out all of the small teams, then I don’t know if I could watch anymore.

    You aren’t the only one! I have no idea what to talk about in my column this week b/c I soooo tired of talking about Kyle. I agree w/ everything you just said, even the part about Jr. winning all of them. (That was a joke — insert Kasey’s name into it. LOL)

    New winner this weekend, please?

    I’m with you … I’m completely tired of Kyle Busch, his overexposure, and the pundits’ slobbering accolades.

    Hmmm, I wonder if there is any shopping cart racing on next Saturday night?
