Hamlin wins the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway
Since the focus here is Kansas City car events, I would be remiss if I didn't talk about this weekend's STP 400 for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and of course the SPF 250 for the NASCAR Camping World Trucks.
As a side note, Jimmie Johnson was driving one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen him in. It was green because of Earth Day, but the green they chose did not look pretty with those black numbers. They said on the TV broadcast that it was actually painted a color of green that Chevrolet offered in 1968. I guess that should have made me like it better, but it really didn't seem to help. He did finish third, though.
I enjoy looking at these pictures, but I also think they're good for posterity. Just think of how cool this album is going to be 20-30 years from now. I truly wish I had pictures like this from these types of events back when my dad and I started going to them. Anyway, get a good feel for all the weekend's festivities by checking out the slideshow below.
