Haiku Tuesday: My Old Kentucky Gas Tank

Haiku Tuesday Splash Image

I'm sure you noticed as well as I did that Cameron, the IZOD Trophy Girl, was replaced in Kentucky's victory lane by a guy dressed up as a big horse, right?

That produced almost, but not quite, the same feeling of disappointment that Ed Carpenter felt after finishing runner-up AGAIN to a Penske car at Kentucky Speedway. And this time he didn't even get to lose it in a photo finish. Helio Castroneves, the guy who has totally ruined "The Girl from Ipanema" for the entire world thanks to his singing performance on the ethanol commercials, won the race Danica Patrick-style - on fuel mileage.

Let us revisit the fun that was at the Bluegrass State's big racetrack in verse, shall we? Hit the jump for the haiku...

No props from Arute?
What is the world coming to?
I miss the whimsy.

Performance issues.
Everyone has them sometimes.
Don't quit over them.

Check out THE HAMMER!
No full-time IndyCar ride.
Still gets second place.

Penske on ovals.
Something happens to the crews.
Do they lose their cool?

Hi, Bertrand Baguette!
You had a great qual and race.
Did not expect it.

Carnage for Sato.
Hard contact into the wall.
He broke his career.

Vitor pushed his luck.
Helio crowded Swiss Miss.
Result: a big wreck.

Grahamboni backmarked.
Do you think Jay Howard felt
Some vindication?

PT LED A LAP!
IT'S TRUE! PT LED A LAP!
