Victory Lane at Daytona


Daytona day, my wife Tina and her brothers, Dominic and Mario.

There’s a lot that I could say about this long, yet extremely exciting race. Although I enjoyed the entire race with the exception of the red flag delays, the bottom line for me was Victory lane. It was worth the wait.

On the second and final green white restart Jamie McMurray held off Kevin Harvick, Gregg Biffle, and then held off Dale Earnhart Jr., who charged from tenth to second in less than two laps, to win his first Daytona 500 race. I was yelling “Go Jr!”

I think that regardless of who you were pulling for, that the Victory Lane celebration was an awesome scene. Jamie McMurray voiced his humbling appreciation for the opportunity that had been given to him to drive for the Ganassi team. He spoke of his childhood dreams and couldn’t hold back the emotions of winning at Daytona.

It was great to watch the TEAM celebration unfold on TV. The many champagne soaked smiles of joy on everyone’s face in Victory Lane. Just as it should be. Don’t you think?

Down the Road – Mike
