Yeah it was a good day because the Fords were never headed, Jr Johnson and Lowndes had a comfortable lead but the pace car brought the field back up to them but still the result never looked like changing.
It was good to see Jr Johnson take pole and then win the race, hopefully some of the critics may get off his back now because he drove really well.
Good Luck all Ford drivers tomorrow and hopefully the results will continue.
I'd like to see the stewards ruling on the ellery incident. Surely one of the K-Mart cars was at fault and should be punished accordingly. Handbag Murphy wouldn't have it any other way if the shoe was on the other foot.
On a postive note, what a great day for Ford Racing. Holden weren't even in the hunt. Makes a nice change to the program if you ask me. Wonder how long it'll take before Perkins and co cry foul and the Falcons are nobbled somehow. Sorry, I'm just a cynical bastard when we start winning.
On an even more positive note is the lengths Ford Racing is going to to get younger folks behind the wheels of new Falcons. When I got home and opend my bag of new Ford goodies, I found an invitation to a GMC afterparty at one of the local nightclubs. Walking around later I found these were being handed about freely to anyone interested. The parties are featuring some top DJ's like Andy Van from Madison Avenue (not my cup of tea but you get that) as well as the drivers and other cool stuff and have the full backing of Ford Racing. Top idea if you ask me. Should get some more young folk considering Falcons instead of crumbledoors for their next purchase.
Here's a piccie of the front of the cards..
