Coca-Cola 600 live-blog, let’s try this again…
All Times Eastern
Can’t they get more cans of Coke on that desk? Come on FOX, step it up.
Race is underway! Hold off, rain.
Joey Logano could win a race this season. He’s been up front a lot lately. Sliced Bread turned 19 yesterday. Easy to see why Gibbs is so heavily invested in him.
In case you were wondering, and this seems to be a major issue in a race chat I am monitoring, the race is on FOX.
The most exciting words in motorsports: competition yellow!
FOX must be listening to its critics. It’s showing cars that are not at the front of the pack. Good to see some variety. Every fan likes seeing his/her driver during the race.
It’s official: Jimmie Johnson’s two-tire strategy is a bust. The rare bad move by Chad Knaus. Caution here helps him.
Red flag: Thunderstorm.
Let’s kill some time. Found this over at the humor site Holy Taco. If you like nut shots, you will love this. Enjoy.
In honor of Memorial Day, how about the 10 Greatest War Movie Quotes of all time?
Is this for real?
Was hoping the rain would drown Digger. Green flag and back underway at the Coca-Cola 120. You heard me.
My 2006 Ford Focus handles better than the 88 car.
Weather.com says 10 percent chance of rain this hour. Let’s hope that’s true. Busch-Vickers 1-2 at lap 135.
Vickers-Montoya. Who had them at 1-2 heading into the race? Not … anyone.
Cars being brought in to honor fallen soldiers. A nice gesture. Very patriotic. NASCAR does these things right.
That was an awesome sight. If you hadn’t thought about what Memorial Day actually meant before, you did just now.
This race is so long, even Sarah Jessica Parker’s face is like, "Damn, this thing’s pretty freaking long." Good night, everyone! Tip your waiters and waitresses. They’re here for you.
Billy Bad Butt? Smoke has a way with words.
3: 50 pm
And we’re green again. Shrub-JJ-Kahne-Edwards Logano at lap 182.
22 hours after the race was scheduled to start, we are finally official.
Caution is out for rain here at 24 Hours of Lowe’s.
