C'mon now! The talking heads say this will be the most exciting 500 ever! Just like they said last year, and the one before that, then the one before that.........well, you get the point!

Of course it doesn't matter much where you start in the 500.

You can scratch the 88 from the front row, back of the heap

The best Daytona finish ever IMO. Harvick comes outta nowhere and steals it and Kyle ends up in the infield, what more can you ask for?

In restrictor races it really doesn't matter where you start, as long as you avoid the wrecks (and have a fast car).

I imagine that the #24 car and who ever qualifies 3rd today, will eventually fall to the back at some time in this race. Jr excels at snaking his way up front.

The #88 team still has the first pit stall, so that helps.

NASCAR is not planning any more changes. I would tune in around 4PM to catch the last few laps of the race.

Ihave t agree that trailer racing isn't much interest really. Its like watch all the cars that hookup unilt you see who was lucky eough to pck the right partner to dance with and the last lap is the real race.

Trailer racing is a good name for it. (Although the 2nd car is actually the one doing the pushing).

As soon as the green flag drops, they pair up immediately. Kind of reminds me of turning on the light and watching the roaches scatter. (No I don't have roaches in my home...lol).
