The perfect thing to watch if you're tired of flipping channels and hearing the same old thing on every news channel. I'm a late Nascar bloomer who only hopped on the wagon back in 2006 and I look forward to this race every year now.....

There are less than half of the cars left than started the race. Needless to say there have been lots of wrecks today.....

The good news is that I pulled Kurt Busch name out of a hat today and he's still in the hunt.

I had two drivers on different teams I was rooting for and they're both out of the race.

Democrats are trying to get NASCAR banned. Did you know that? Something about the confederate flag....

I've been switching back and forth between the race and the Olympics. And keeping one eye on KT on my laptop.

The race has been pretty wild ... the biathlon is really cool ... and someone please tell me how is it that Curling has so many beautiful women?

Fun Fact

Back in the 1998 Dale Earnhardt Sr won his first and only Daytona 500 in his #3 car and today twenty years later Austin Dillon driving the #3 car won his first one also.

I don't have anyone specific I root for anymore. The sport is starting to resemble IndyCar and I hate the way they eff with the rules all the time. I do have a couple drivers I root against though.

Did the Richard Petty thing a few times and did 164 MPH at Talledega.......now that was fun!!

They should start a retro racin' series and go back to car styles and rules from the 70's and 80's but with the newer safety equipment. I'll bet it would have a big following after a while. I keep telling my kids, the original stuff was the best in almost anything you look at!
