Talladega 500

So, I like a lot of NASCAR drivers; Kyle Busch, Bubba Wallace, Ryan Blaney, Daniel Suarez, Corey LaJoie, and Brad Keselowski.

I’m just getting into NASCAR at 55 years old and I think the competition amongst Cup drivers is through the roof. Today’s Talladega 500 was absolutely amazing.

From the start of the race Bubba Wallace was in the front of the pack. He even led for quite a while. But, since everyone is so darned good, and they really do race for 500 miles, the end of the race gets really dicey and dangerous.

At the end of the race Bubba Wallace, Kyle Busch, and Ryan Blaney were all in contention.

At a restart, after a pileup, Bubba Wallace made his move to the front and was making moves to block Blaney. One touch of Blaney’s front bumper to Wallace’s rear bumper and there was a big crash.

Kyle Bush went on to win the race. Happy to see him win but I feel terrible for Bubba Wallace after running such a brilliant race all day. He was at the head of the pack all day and to see it end like that was depressing and exciting all at the same time.
