F1 just finished.
Team Mercedes finished 1,2
Nico Rosberg won followed by Lewis Hamilton.
Hamilton had something in his eye 2/3 or so in to the race, so he lost touch with the leader and just managed to squeak out 2nd.

I watched the F1 race, then I turned the TV off.

Currently F1 is a bit boring. It's Mercedes, a pause and then a race for the 3rd place. but Monte Carlo is special. It is almost impossible to pass and when it happens it is not pretty.

Indy was good on last laps.


Nascar update: 110 laps to go

Danica's engine just blew up.
A little while ago Kurt Busch's engine blew up. Yes they are on same team with Hendrick engines!

Danica did well first 20 laps, but fell back as she got tighter and they made poor adjustments and she got lapped. Had engine problems, dropped a cylinder and got hit from behind while slowing down for accident in front of her. Engine lasted a long while before blowing up.

Kurt Busch had to start at back because he missed the driver meeting. He did get lapped as race was caution freee for first 100 laps. He did get his lap back.

Currently Jimmie Johnson battling Matt Kenseth for lead.

Kyle Busch started at back of pack due to repairs in a crash earlier in week. He is doing well in 6th.

Jamie McMurray who won the previous week allstar race at this track is doing well, in top 10.

Now Dale Earnhardt Jr in pits stopped with hood up, possible Hendrick engine issue. 85 laps to go, 1.5 mile track. He's back up to speed but laps down.
