kicking and screaming at richmond

I didn’t see the kicking and screaming at Richmond after the Nationwide Series race because I was at work, or on my way home from work but I heard all about it. I think this year is all about drivers “not taking it anymore,” like, everyone suddenly remembered NASCAR saying “Boys have at it” but it didn’t sink in until this year.

Kevin Harvick won the Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond and that was awesome. Although I was super sad for Juan Pablo Montoya because he was SO close to winning on an oval. Fox showed his crew chief, Chris Heroy, and talked about how it would have been his first win ever as a chief and that made me want them to win all the more because I’m a sucker for a 1st time winner.
