NON-TEAM MEMBER MATT KENSETH HELPS JEFF GORDON CLEAN THE FRONT GRILL OF DEBRIS
If you weren’t able to tune into Sunday’s race at Michigan, you didn’t miss much at all. It reminded me of a California or Pocono race. Just a lot of left turns with not much action, although it did end up in a green white checker finish due to the one and only Kurt Busch nailing the wall and sending him to the garage. Actually, that was about all of the action happening were drivers hitting the walls out of the corners. And of course Carl Edwards having problems early on and knocking him out of the points lead.
The biggest thing that surprised me was Jeff Gordon was running good until he started overheating due to debris in his grill. Which could have clearly taken him out of the race with engine failure. Jeff keyed in on the mic and asked if Matt Kenseth would pass him so he could draft to remove the crowd trash from the grill. As you know these two have had there problems in the past, so I was amazed Kenseth actually helped him out. Teammate Mark Martin also helped Jeff out late in the race to clean yet more debris out of his grill, although Mark seemed a little less reluctant to help out.
Not much good stuff happening in Michigan this weekend and unfortunately, the other of the Busch brothers blues band took the win.
What did you think of race and what was your take?
