What a ridiculous day of auto racing we have had, ladies and gentlemen.
At the Indianapolis 500, J.R. Hildebrand has the lead going into the final lap, and it looks like he is actually going to win the race in his rookie year. And then in Turn Four he hits the wall, and allows Dan Wheldon to pass him and win. Unbelievable.
Then in Charlotte tonight at the Coca-Cola 600, it looks like Dale Earnhardt Jr. is finally going to end his long losing streak. All of Jr. Nation is on its feet as Earnhardt Jr. approaches Turn Four in the last lap of a green-white-checkered finish -- and he immediately runs out of gas and loses to Kevin Harvick.
Wow. Talk about a humbling day in both NASCAR and Indycar.
Oh, and in Monaco Sebastian Vettel started in pole position and actually won the race. Well, one out of three ain't bad.
