The National Day of Auto-Racing, as I have just dubbed today, concludes with the longest race on the NASCAR schedule, the Coca-Cola 600. Nothing about this race screams fast, sprint, or short - 600 miles, stressing drivers, crews, and cars.

Hopefully you are enjoying the racing action on the one day all year auto-racing takes center stage. The Indy 500 earlier today was a great race, with a ton of passing. Hopefully the Coca-Cola 600 can live up to its role as the capstone event for this weekend.

Tomorrow we will turn to baseball and BBQs, as well as a day to remember our Service Members who have given everything to provide us with the freedoms we enjoy.

Enjoy the race!
