I'll let you pick. Here are some facts.

PASSING:    

Indy—Was just a nice parade of race cars with one fun pass by Helio. 

Monaco—Was just the same, a nice parade of beautiful cars. No passing.

NASCAR—Some good passing, of course Tony Stewart got upset at David

Reutimann, racing too early! WHAAATTT! are you kidding me? He actually said that during a rain-delay interview.


EXCITEMENT:  

INDY—Had the best human interest story of the day, Castonaves was emotional and the crowd was into the celebration.

Monaco—Is hard to tell in Monaco, you don't really get a good look at the fans, the best part was Button running to the podium.

NASCAR—The winner was a driver who was running in the back, I think he was running in 15th-place, about 20 cars or so decided to pit, the No. 00 stayed out.  Reutimann won the race without passing one soul.

Sorry, but when you get Robby Gordon and Reutimann  in the top three, there is something wrong with that picture, especially when there were many drivers running well. This race was like kissing your sister—it's just not right.

Can we all say Goodyear how about a rain tire! I'd rather watch a race running at 50 MPH in the rain, then watch this finishes.

Here is a quick fix, if they get a yellow for rain and then red flagged,  they should not be able to gain positions, understand me, I'm just talking in rain situations.

 

SURPRISES: 

Indy—None.

Monaco—None.

NASCAR—The winner and Robby Gordon.

 

Ok! There you are, pick!

Who had the best race this weekend?
