My Name Is IRL is all about sharing, and since his comments were overshadowing my own race recaps it only seemed right to hand the duties of post-race analysis over to one of our favorite readers. Ladies and gentleman, let’s give it up for John Oreovicz’s biggest fan, the one, the only, the “mmack”.

Ahh the demands of the public for more writing. I believe that's what drove Hemmingway and Fitzgerald to drink. Or something like that.

Seriously, I'd like to comment, but … Maria and I watched the beginning of the race on Saturday night while having dinner (roasted poblano peppers stuffed with ground turkey and her special blend of spices and salsa) and then retired to the infamous "big comfy couch" to watch the finish. Our shared observations:

Boy that two races, two series, one day thing really worked out well for Marco, didn't it?

I was glad to see Danica didn't do the patented "Patrick Plunge" through the field during the race. She stayed up in the top five and when she wasn't attending a block party against her will, she looked pretty strong.

Due to illness, the part of EJ Viso will be played by Will Power.

Scott Dixon and Choppers got "dumb lucky" Saturday night.

Maria is sick of Scott Dixon winning. Also, she thinks Dan Wheldon "looks like a girl".

After the race we switched to the NASCAR race on TNT, opened the window, sat out on our patio, and lit a fire in the chiminea. We held hands, drank beer, and listened to Kyle Busch win yet another NAPCAR race. At least he had to pass somebody this time.

We both agreed that as much as we wanted to go to Nashville again, maybe it was for the best due to the rain.

    Jeez Jeff, where did you get THIS hack?!?

    I've seen better writing on a doctor's prescription.

    Congratulations, you're now a fellow unprofessional word butcher.

    We'll see if we can get you a media credential for a race soon.

    Mark,

    Maria is spot on! Sick of Dixon winning and Weldon DOES look like a girl, a very young one.

    Loved it!
