Justin Haley.. Congrats to the young man.. But.. While I like the 'surprise' winners as much as anyone.. Not a huge fan of a part time driver getting the win.

The cynic in me doesn't think this is over yet. They'll go over that car with a fine-tooth comb and use their "zero-tolerance" rule to DQ them for a miniscule infraction they'd normally overlook.

I'm OK with Justin getting the win. It's a dream come true for them. I'm just bummed that the race had to be called. NASCAR should have started the race no later than noon Sunday, even I saw on my weather app that afternoon thunderstorms were in store. Would have been a terrific finish had the race been allowed to go on.

Overall though, it was one of the better Daytona races in recent memory. Lot's of good, exciting racing. Next year, this race will be in September. That time of year is more effected by hurricanes, so that could make things interesting.

Technically August, but.. Yeah, close enough.


I don't know.. The race didn't get interesting until the Ford camp was broken up. Ford just seems to have fewer teams.. They have less cars than Chevy.. 19-15-6 C-F-T.. But those 15 Fords are 6 teams, while the 19 Chevys are about 13 different teams based on my count and the majority of those aren't very good.. Toyotas are 3 teams and could be considered 2 since Levine and Gibbs are partnered up, but having only 6 cars is tough.

We were at the race. It was my 2nd race ever (1st Daytona). We were pretty bummed about the weather. However, when they were racing it was great. And yes I agree they should have started the race earlier on Sunday. I think a noon start would have got them through the whole race. I'm guessing the 1pm start was due to TV/advertising, etc. As much as I'd like to try Daytona again in the future I don't think it will happen again, at least not for a while. Summer weather in FL is just to unpredictable, especially now with the race moving to the end of August. However, I'm willing to beat the race will eventually move back to the 4th.

Try the 500 in February. Much better weather.

I agree. If we try Daytona again it will definitely be for the 500 in Feb.

great finish to the race tonight, kurt busch held off his brother kyle at the line in overtime to win at kentucky, eric jones, kyle larson and denny hamlin round out the top five tonight.


as a side note, i am hoping that daniel suarez continues to improve, perhaps he can win a race this season, we shall see. he started on the pole tonight, and finished 8th after an early misstep that put him nearly to laps down in the middle of the race. nice comeback daniel.

It was a terrific finish for sure. Also enjoyed Kurt's "hell ya" and his Kulwicki style drive back to the winners circle with his pit crew on the car. Too bad the official stopped it.

I thought the interview with Kyle was funny. He just had no emotion for his brothers win. He did say it was one of the best finishes with his older bro since they came to NASCAR.
