Daytona

Recommended Posts

Yes it deserves it's own thread. What a track.

All the history one could ever ask for. It's my favorite track on the circuit. 400 or 500, either or, I'm just glad to see it.

You bet it is.

I'm not a fan of the 2 car draft but i'll get used to it i guess. I've gotten used to everything else they throw at us.

I'm just a nascar bitch when it comes to Daytona! LOL I'll take whatever they give me because I know it'll be worth it.

Why was there no caution at the end? Cars were sitting on the track and other cars were flying by them. Someone could have gotten seriously hurt.

I usually enjoy Daytona races... I watched about 15 minutes last night and all I saw was pairs of cars following each other around... uber boring. NASCAR has completely lost me as a fan.

I was wondering the same. It was very similar to the situation a few years ago where they did throw the yellow and it cost mark martin the race. I guess this year they are being more reserved on the last lap. They've done it a few times.

There was way tighter groups of cars than the 1st two plate race, at least. I thought it was a decent race, those 2 car packs means someone is on the verge of getting punted every lap. Got pretty dicey at the end.

I dont understand how people think its any worse than watching them all get spread out with one guy leading by 5+ seconds on the cookie cutters.

Just got back in from Daytona. After race, drove all night to get home.

Race was exciting start, exciting finish sandwiching 2 hrs of snoozefest.

Agree with earlier post. With 15 laps or so to go, Gordon/Martin starting marching through the field. Gordon was strongest car out there. Hendrick team was up front early and all but Johnson lead a lap. Then, they all dropped to back of field to nap until end of race.

Nascar will be in trouble if they cannot come up with something other than restrictor plate racing. Because of restrictor plates, they choose between the "pack" stuff from a few years ago, and the stuff we have seen lately.

Neither is that good and relies on luck more often than skill to win a race.
