STAFF BLOG ADDICTED TO RUNNING Getting to the END
Time has a way of coloring the past, and mostly, memories of Saturday's adventure race fill in the outlines of a new experience.
Early Saturday, Tim and Denise, two-thirds of Team STD, headed out fro... Posted on 5/1/12 at 12:01 AM
They raced 1-2-3 in line, trading the lead a whopping 15 times over the final, frantic 75 laps. All three drivers had a last-lap plan in mind when they zipped past the white flag, and it was Takuma Sato who acted first with a bold move for the win.
Right from the start, a horse trained by one not so over-the-hill Hall of Famer and ridden by another took control of the Preakness. The result: a huge upset and the end of any hopes for a Triple Crown attempt at the Belmont Stakes.
Trainer Doug O'Neill had a pretty darned good day on two courses. First he birdied the eighth hole during a Wednesday afternoon golf outing at Valhalla and then he aced the Kentucky Derby draw when Goldencents landed in the No. 8 post and was made the 5-1 third choice for Saturday's race.
A big first for Danica Patrick, but an even bigger second for Jimmie Johnson. Patrick made history up front at the Daytona 500 Sunday, only to see Johnson make a late push ahead of her and reclaim his spot at the top of his sport.
The big boys brought their little girls to see NASCAR's shining star. Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson all took their daughters to meet Danica Patrick this week at Daytona International Speedway.

When stock car racer Shawn McFadden Jr. began bumping into another competitor coming down the homestretch on Jan. 26 in Superior — "trading paint" as they say — the two race officials along the infield, flagman Ed Stouffer and lap counter John Kimmes, started to go into a back pedal.
NASCAR's oddest couple captured its biggest prize Sunday night, when Keselowski brought Penske his first Sprint Cup championship 40 years after the owner's first stock car race. He beat five-time champion Jimmie Johnson of mighty Hendrick Motorsports while delivering the crown that fills a glaring hole on Penske's otherwise sterling racing resume.
