I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day. Our day started out with rain but by the afternoon the bad weather cleared out and it warmed up just in time for our family cookout. As always there was plenty of tasty food & beer and I took advantage of both. I ate way more than I should’ve, but when the food is that good, how can you not?
My favorite part of the weekend was definitely Sunday. It started out around noon with the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500! It turned out to be a very competitive race but in the end Juan Pablo Montoya beat out Will Power for the victory.
Next up was Nascar’s longest race of the season, the Coca-Cola 600. This one is all about endurance as 43 drivers battle it out over the course of 600 miles! At the end of the night it was a huge win for Toyota as Carl Edwards took the checkers and completed his first celebratory back flip of the season.
I also caught the new Mad Max film over the weekend and loved it! If you’re a fan of the original, this new addition to the series remains true. The post-apocalyptic automotive goodness and high speed action really gets the adrenaline pumping. I highly recommend checking it out while it’s in theaters on the big screen.
