direcTV 500 and opening night in baseball
tony stewart held off a late charge from jeff gordon, jimmie johnson, dale earnhardt jr and kyle busch to win the direcTV 500 in martinsville. quite the exciting finish. in the end tony had the car. he led most of the race. the win moves tony to 8th in the points. jimmie johnson leads mark martin by 59 points, while matt kenseth crashed and fell to 3rd in the points. kasey kahne and kurt busch round up the top five.
meanwhile in chicago, the white sox opened their season with a 10-4 win over the cleveland indians which involved a LENGTHY rain delay. the game ended a few minutes ago. time to go get some shut eye now.
