Sen Allen and NASCAR
A great article here about Sen Allen at Martinsville. We both wanted a Virginia driver to win.
U.S. Sen. George Allen might have been disappointed that a Virginia resident didn't win Sunday's SUBWAY 500, but he said he's not disappointed with the way his campaign for re-election is going because voters are now focusing on the issues.
"People are focused on ideas," he said, "because people care about the issues."
Allen gives a good talk on Iraq and working with Sen Warner. He covers the issues well, so give this article a read. About the race you ask?
Allen, who said he "loved" the race, said he was hoping Denny Hamlin would win on Sunday, but Hamlin finished second to Jimmie Johnson. Also, he said he was excited to see Ward Burton, who has not raced in two years, back on the track.
"But I felt bad for Jeff Burton (Ward's brother)," he said. Jeff Burton, who went into the race the points leader, had engine problems and finished 42nd. Hamlin and the Burton brothers are all Virginians.
NASCAR fans for Allen!
