rubbin’ is racing

Here is a small sample of some of my photos taken from this past weekend’s Dan Lowry 400 NASCAR race.

Denny Hamlin, of Joe Gibbs Racing, started in first place and led for nearly the entire Dan Lowry 400. Unfortunately, he ran into some tire trouble with less than 20 laps to go and had to settle for a 24th place finish.

Fellow Joe Gibbs driver Tony Stewart fared a little better than Hamlin, starting in 15th place and earning a fourth-place finish.

Two of the most popular drivers in NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon, fight for positioning during the race. Earnhardt Jr. came within for laps of winning the Dan Lowry 400 and breaking his 72-race winless streak.

I don’t know a ton about NASCAR, but I’m fairly sure sparks are a bad thing. That would probably explain why Johnny Sauter is pulling the Haas Automation Chevrolet in for an unscheduled pitstop.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a diehard Redskins fan, and for that, we love him. Plus, he’s driving the Army National Guard car, so he’s patriotic and a ‘Skins fan. Seriously, how could anyone root against this guy?
