Thinking about 25th

On Saturday Sam Hornish Jr started 21st and finished 25th, running near the middle of the pack for the entire race. Apparently this satisfying to Uncle Sam.

"The best part about today was having the opportunity to run as many laps as we did and finish the race," said Hornish. "What we came here to do was run a bunch of laps ... obviously we would have loved to finish higher, but we just didn't have the car to do that today. But we brought the car back without any damage, we put it right on the trailer and that's a big positive.

"For as many times as we've gotten caught up in stuff this year, anytime we can run clean, run to the end and get seat time, it's very good," added Hornish. (MORE from Defiance Crescent-News)
Geez, talk about lowered expectations.

    Even Sam is going to have a learning curve going from Indy Cars to stock cars, which is like going from racing a motorcycle to racing an RV.

    Oh come on pressdog--that's an exageration--it's like going from a jet plane to a john deer--don't understate the difference.
