      Originally scheduled to be a day-to-night race, NASCAR’s 2009 Coca-Cola 600 never got started on Sunday the 24th. The rain had been off and on all day and finally, it was postponed until Monday at noon. Even on Monday, it proved to be difficult to get the entire 600 miles in. In fact, they didn’t.

      Ryan Newman had the pole for the start of the race and chose to start on the outside, which was the smart thing to do. The outside lane was giving more force and power coming out of the turns.

      Several


      drivers were in contention during the race and some never were. Dale Earnhardt Jr. just kept going backwards. There have been a lot of rumors lately about him finally giving up the Eury Jr. ghost. He never should have brought Eury Jr. over as his crew chief when he came to Hendrick in the first place. It wasn’t smart. It looks like he finally might wise up, but then again, who knows. Junior was dismal in this race. He’s just not a contender these days.

They’d had a few rain delays during the event already, and NASCAR finally called it a day. That meant that David Reutimann, the first car not to pit, got the win. It was incredible. It was frustrating, but that’s racing, and a win is a win.

        something unusual. They stopped the race. President Obama had called for a minute of silence at 3pm to honor our soldiers. It was Memorial Day in the United States. NASCAR brought the vehicles to a halt, and the teams lined the pit road along with the military members who were in attendance. It was really very poignant. Tony Stewart said it was one of the most amazing and emotional things he’d experienced.

        Now that was cool. It was better than the race, and that’s what I’ll remember about the 2009 Coca-Cola 600.
