The last Sunday in May is the greatest day in racing. This past Sunday was no different. From the Formula 1(F1) race on the streets of Monaco to Indianapolis to NASCARs home base of Charlotte. All three had their share of drama too.
Defending F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton led most of the race and then, inexplicably, pitted and was passed by rivals Nico Rosberg (his teammate) and Sebastian Vettel. While the team apologized afterward at one point during the race Hamilton told them to stop talking to him through the radio.
Juan Pablo Montoya won his second Indianapolis 500 but It wasn’t without it’s fair share of lead changes. Montoya, Will Power and Scott Dixon traded the lead several times before Montoya finally overtook Power for the win.
The day finished off with the longest race of the day, the Coca-Cola 600. While Martin Truex JR led the race most of the way Carl Edwards ended up taking the checkered flag. He even had to overcome a sticky foot pedal early in the race presumably from a Coke.
Apparently security isn’t a big priority at Roland Garros as a fan ran out onto center court and tried to get a selfie with Roger Federer. He was not pleased, especially when the kid couldn’t get his phone to work.
We have seen athletes do this is the past but it’s still cool to see even if it is a coach from Florida. Former Florida Men’s basketball coach Billy Donovan took out a full page ad In the Gainesville Sun to say thank you to the Florida fan base.
