Tony Stewart wins at Talledega!

Tony Stewart is Darrell's nascar driver, for those of you who may not know. He finally won his first race of the 2008 season and his first race at Talledega. It was a very intense finish with Tony leading the last few laps. The leader on the last lap of Talledega hardly ever is the winner. There was plenty of time for the drivers behind him to make a move and take the lead. On the final straightaway, Smith went down below the yellow line to pass Tony and cross the finish line first. Darrell's heart sank until they announced that you cannot pass below the yellow line. Tony had won and I think that everyone within 20 miles heard Darrell screaming with excitement. It is quite fun to watch him get so into the races. The win comes at a perfect time when we are planning our trip to the Phoenix race in November. This will be our last chance to wear our #20 Home Depot gear as Tony will be changing numbers and sponsers next year. We are also going without kids so you can imagine how anxious we are to get away for an extended weekend at the race track!
