Brickyard 400: Megastar Subs for Megastar; Another Star Wins

Skittles skedaddling.

Can't tell your players without a program.

But this is NASCAR. You can tell them without a program.

Usually.

However, at this year's Brickyard 400, those who collect programs could tell, all right. Many of them just weren't into it for this one.

One particular driver was, though:

Déja vu.

Same dude who Skittled his way to the checkers last year.

This time, there was no disruption in the Matrix. Busch was in total control ...

... as in leading for 149 of the race's 170 laps.

It's hard to push a winner off the headlines, but Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr gave it quite a run.

All things considered, Gordon did well to finish 13th.

Concussion protocol will keep Dale Jr out of Pocono, too, so Gordon will have more time to re-adjust.

So, if another driver wins in the shadow of Gordon and Car No 88, it could be déja vu all over again.

Again.
