I’m not a race car fan, but there are plenty of you out there who are. So here’s to the grandaddy of ’em all, the biggest and baddest and bestest of all auto races: the Indianapolis 500 (oops, I mean the Daytona 500 – my bad!) Today was the race. Well, if you didn’t see it live, the finish lived up to the pace of the chase with great grace.
Deny Hamlin won by a nose. By all accounts, it was a thrilling race and an even more chilling finish. So the spiritual lesson is that you can win by almost nothing. But it’s still a win. Because, a win, is a win, is a win. And the difference and the distance between winning and losing is as close as a hair and as far apart as a galaxy’s night and a distant star’s day.
