    Default Daytona 500

    Well

    Kyle Busch will win Maybe

    What do you think?

    Since Dale Earnhardt passed away I rarely watch NASCAR but always seem to make time to watch Daytona and Bristol.

    The reason I kind of like Kyle Busch is most dislike him

    F1 is more about cars than drivers that's one reason NASCAR is far more entertaining than F1 or any other form of motorsports.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    The only reason NASCAR is more popular in America is that it is an American racing sport. F1 is awesome and it is about the drivers and not just the cars. In modern day car racing mostly all cars are tested prior to race and after the event to make sure no unfair advantage is gain by anyone. If F1 was promoted in America as much as NASCAR it would have a decent market share. The Indy series has died to nothing, but every year everybody comes out, sits around the TV and watch the Indy 500 and we hardly know any of the drivers anymore. Why? becasue its an American triadition. Americas are very funny when it comes to outside sporting events and take a lot of coaxing to get them to give other events a chance. If F1 had American drivers/teams involved it would be something for US to cheer for, so with that main element missing only hard core racing fans care to watch.

    I'd like to see Trevor Bayne win again in the Wood Brothers Motorcraft Ford baby!!

    I used to be a huge Nascar fan, but in recent years I only watch a handful of races each season... I think (and hope) this new car will make for an exciting race this year...

    Boogitty Boogitty Boogitty!!

    Oh yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing Danica win either...

    On a brighter note the cars look so much better than the COT dreck of the last few years.

    Nope

    It's the direction NASCAR has taken which in my opinion sucks. It has worked well for them so good for them/NASCAR and bad for me.
    Oh well

    For me F1 Racing is where it's at. That go fast turn left deal in Nascar has never done anything for me.

    Agreed it's the pinnacle .I'm a long time F1 fan and it certainly seems more popular here in Canada but I like all forms of motor sports.

    Nascar jumped the shark a few years ago sadly.I used to really enjoy it in the old days.
    NHRA is our horsepower fix these days.

    This was the least competitive race I have ever seen. No passing, trading paint(unless it was a multi-car wreck). What a joke. Competition has been on a downward spiral ever since the lights went out on #3. And yesterday their safer cars sent twenty-plus spectators to the hospital.

    I could swear there was a Hollywood type disclaimer as the credits rolled that said"no drivers hurt during filming". Don't get me wrong, as I don't want to see people get hurt, but the competition is all gone now that every car is exactly the same. After today, NASCAR is dead to me until they find a way to be like the Winston Cup once again. Until then, it is less painful to watch paint dry, or watch PFB search for ladybois in skinny jeans.

    Eh, at least in my neck of the woods the BBQ was good. Really good mind you. Back in the day, it was just a hidden bonus. It's sad when it becomes the highlight.

    Agreed , it was the most boring restrictor plate race ( more like a single file parade) I have seen in some time.

    I'm a firm believer in "If you don't like it, don't watch it." That's why there are 3000 other channels online and on tv. I'm sure someone is watching a paint dry channel somewhere.
