Indy 500 postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
I doubt this was by design. However, if there was ever a better example of foreshadowing what lay immediately ahead than IMS chairman Mari Hulman George rather awkwardly rebuffing her daughter Nancy's assist to help complete another of her customary prolonged commands to start engines, I certainly don't remember it.
The Indy 500 is too good to not do it again
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
IndyCar put on another great show last Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, IndyCar had almost 300,000 fans screaming on the top of their lungs as the top drivers in the world put on a race to remember. For practically the entire distance, at least three cars dueled for the lead. They looked like earthbound fighter jets engaging in spectacular dogfights. They made NASCAR look bad. For most of the year IndyCar gets beaten up in the media for low attendance, low car counts, low TV ratings, ride-buying and the like, and a lot of it is deserved. But every Sunday on Memorial Day weekend that’s all forgotten as IndyCar puts on the best racing on the planet.  Period.

Carl Edwards wins his first Coca-Cola 600
  by Pete McCole
Carl Edwards rolled the dice and came up a winner as he stretched out his fuel just enough to cover the 600-mile distance to snap a 31-race winless streak and collect his first victory of the season in Sunday night’s Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Edwards ran the final 60 laps on a single tank of fuel and beat out his former teammate Greg Biffle to score his first-career Charlotte victory and his first driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. It was also the 300th NASCAR victory for Toyota. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. came home third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex, Jr.
Indy 500 post-race notes and quotes
  IndyCar
Jeff Gordon has set the pace plenty of times in his incredible NASCAR career, but the former Pittsboro, Ind., resident couldn't wait to lead the Indianapolis 500 field to the green flag as driver of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 pace car. "What a thrill it is to be here on race day," Gordon said shortly before climbing into the car. "I certainly had plenty of opportunities to make laps around this track before, but never have I had the experience like I'm having here today, to be honored as being the pace car driver, to get the chance to drive that amazing Corvette Z06."
