Finally, Got to See the Prelude to the Dream

Well, I finally was able to see the Prelude to the Dream race at Eldora speedway tonight, they replayed it on Speed, and I got to see all the heat races and the main. It was pretty exciting watching Jeff Gordon come up and take position after position and then the lead from Carl Edwards, but, Gordon didn’t keep the lead for long as Edwards pulled the same move on him, diving down to the bottom and sliding up in front of each other for the pass.

And they were right, all these guys drove their hearts out for the Victory Junction Gang charity, I only wish I would’ve paid for it when it was on pay per view, but we didn’t get to for some reason, I don’t recall why. With Jeff Gordon running up front and vying for the lead after not being in one of these cars for 16 years, you have to give him props, he is a legend on motor sports and hopefully we will see him win his fifth Nascar championship this year.

Ken Schrader ran great, coming close a few times to getting around Gordon, Stewart ran great until the wreck between him and Kasey Kahne, and Juan Montoya running great for being in one of these cars for the first time. Really, really some impressive racing, and I am planning on taking that week off, getting there early, camping out and watching the Prelude next year.
