Martin Truex Jr Wins Southern 500!!!

So there was lot's of stuff going on Sunday night on TV.  But hopefully you saw Martin Truex, Jr win the Southern 500.  This is one of the top races on the NASCAR circuit with the initial race in 1950. 
 This is Martin's second victory for the year, having won the Coca Cola 600 on May 29.  And of course there is a report of that victory in the blog.  Notice that the sponsor is Auto Owners Insurance.  They are based out of Lansing.  They are sponsors for two races this year.  Cool for them.
I didn't see team owner Barney Visser in the TV.  But as you know Barney farms quite a bit of land near Denver and uses AgroLiquid for his crop nutrition.  So of course I cheer for Martin in every race.  Surely the prize money goes to fertilizer purchase.
