Saturday Feb. 12 - Budweiser Shootout

Thursday, Feb. 17 - Gatorade Duals (Qualifying top two).

Sunday, Feb. 20 - "The Great American Race".

So will the Daytona 500 be the best ever on the newly paved 2.5 mile oval? Will we finally see 3-wide racing return? Will we see the fastest race ever?

Will Jimmie Johnson win? (Noooo...)

13 days....let's go racing boys!!

Amen to that.........I could care less about the NFL, but love college f-ball. To me there's nothing like a weekend when all 3 series race. The best part is I stepped out of the Jurassic age and got a brand new 46" HDTV to watch the races on.

I think Jamie Mac wins the 500 again and pre-season am going with Harvick or Stewart to win it all. Jr. somehow gets a victory this year and barely gets in the Chase. Can't wait for it all to start.

USN, I had to laugh when I read the title of your thread - cause that is nearly an exact quote from my Facebook Page!

The NFL Season is O-V-E-R.
That can only mean one thing...
It's Time To RACE!!!
Drivers, Start Your Engines!!!!!




Gimme the sound of 43 800-plus horsepower monsters, the smell of unburnt hydrocarbons and burning rubber, the sight of the field coming to take the green flag...

Yeah, Baby!!

I gotta say last year was a great year of racing (except the guy who won it all....again), and look forward to yet a better one this season! Believe Shrub pulls out a wonderful postseason finally and grabs the first of many Cup titles. Daytona although a crapshoot of sorts, can go to any of the EGR/Hendrick/RCR or Gibbs' cars. They tend to have the power, especially the EGR and RCR cars! Flip a coin....hell even Jr. can pull this one off possibly! He does seem to do well there. We'll just have to sit back and watch what happens!

Pulling for my guy Petrov! He should have a really good second year, especially if he can stop crashing out in qualifying!
