That was a fun ending. Glad to see the Wood Brothers win, glad to see the rookie win, and glad they repaved the track.

Don't see how any of that was his fault.

Should've let the pack pass instead of driving right up back into a pack of cars. That was stupid by RG.

Way to go Bayne! Didn't think Labonte would have the power to push him. I wouldn't surprised if the extra sponsorship needed to get Bayne a full season came in now although he can't run for driver's points.

Edwards and Gilliland came out of no where.

It was and it wasn't. It wasn't his fault that Stewart jumped in front of him causing him to check up and force him off the track, but when he decided to pull a stupid stunt of coming back onto the racing surface above the yellow line in the middle of a big pack of traffic, that was a stupid move.

Wood Bros.!!!!!!!!

Always loved that family racing team.

Damn straight. It's sad to see them limited to part time participants in NASCAR, but it was great to see them back in victory lane for the first time in 20 years. First time at Daytona since Pearson in 76. That is awesome!

Roush is going to pluck Bayne out of that car and put it in one of his before the All-Star race.

It was a good race to me, i saw a few complaints about the racing due to the two car packs and between the leaders or whatever but i think there was some badass racing in the pack and i saw quite a few impressive saves..i enjoyed it, plus the race had rookie in his second start ends up winning by holding off the pack for like 6 laps , he also threw a nice block on edwards which was pretty cool.

What was really cool is seeing the famous 21 go back to victory lane with the wood brothers power and the same paint scheme david pearson ran.

I really wanted to see jpm win and he looked good on the 2nd gwc but he and kurt bush just lost the draft on the white flag lap, i was freakin bummed ... especially since he came back from 2 spins to contend for the win.

All in all good race, jr ran strong, kyle bush, edwards, regan or hamlin didn't win and nobody got hurt..

Can't wait for next weekend!
