So I can't really say I understand the financials between a season championship and a Daytons 24 Hour victory, but I have to imagine the perks of winning the season are so much greater that switching drivers to make sure they get championship points makes sense. Although it sounds like it may also have had something to do with Jordan creeping over his maximum allowed time, that makes much more sense, but you hope they were right on it.
The reality is Scott Dixon is awesome and he would have been hard for Jordan Taylor to pass but I think we all agree we would have liked to see an attempt. The race was still great with plenty action and many teams coming back from behind. Heck the Prototype Challenge lead changed hands with 10 minutes to go.
Tony Kanaan gets to join the club of guys who have won the Indy 500 and Daytons 24Hrs; but Jaime McMurray joins a more exclusive club of guys who have won both the Daytona 500 and Daytona 24Hrs. The only other two to have done it: A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti. That's some company to be in.
Congrats to all the drivers and congrats to all fans because its racing season again.
