And now the conclusion of my mini-project to follow the two NASCAR drivers this season who have a connection to the number 36.
As for my project, I had been following Dave Blaney (who drives the Number 36 car) and Jeff Burton (who came in 36th place at NASCAR’s inaugural race, Daytona).
To put it mildly, it was never close.
With all thirty-six (hey, there that’s number again) races complete, Jeff Burton finished the season with 935 points and ended the year in 20th place. Dave Blaney, in the 2011 season, compiled 508 points and finished in 32nd place.
Well, that was fun…see you next year in Daytona for the start of the next exciting NASCAR season.
