On a slow news day, with little to write...

I wrote out a poem recapping 2009.

Here is the story, of the season thus far...

With football over, thank God for NASCAR.


Ode to the Season

The season is young, the Chase looms far away;

A look back at NASCAR, before Easter Day.

The season started with with two wins for the Bees;

But seven races in, and the Bees are deceased.


Edwards was picked to dethrone the champ;

Yet Johnson continues to move up the ramp.

Jeff Gordon was said to be old and outdated;

He's currently spanking the field of high-rated.


Dale Junior was given a free pass last year;

But pit road struggles have given Junior Nation fear.

Fear that he may be called mediocre;

Fear that may be replaced by Al Roker.


Sliced Bread was brought to the Cup level fast;

If he falls out of the top-35, will he last?

Stewart was told he would struggle this season;

Yet seven races in, he has us believin'.


Kyle Busch won at Vegas, his hometown track;

It won't be his last win, and that's a fact.

Hamlin bought tickets, to help out the fans;

His mom must be proud, he's become quite the young man.


Gordon won at Texas, thank goodness for that;

It ended his streak, now shut up, Larry Mac!

Mark Martin may return next year to the track;

Retire! Retire! Before hurting your back!


The four teams continue to be solid picks;

Gibbs and Childress, Roush and Hendrick.

AJ was booted for the Speed Demon's man pouch;

Yet AJ raced Sunday, while Speed watched from his couch.


David was given the nickname Franchise;

As he brought Waltrip Racing out demise.

No one expected him to make the Chase;

Yet seven races in, and he's making his case.


With 21 races remaining till the Chase begins;

Eight different teams are currently in.

The season is long, the standings will swap;

Have a good Easter, and try the Bunny Hop.
