I hope your right but they haven't tried to draft in bigger packs in any of the winter test sessions or speedweeks. Even the nationwide cars were trying to do the 2 car draft in practice and their front bumpers are not even close to being flat like the cup cars.

This race is boring. Maybe when all of the cars get out there it will change but right now I could fall asleep watching this.

Well a green white finish at Daytona is very boring. I see several issues that I do believe are going to shake some things up come Sunday when they all get out there to race.

Well Daytona either gets your heart rate going or puts you to sleep. Listen to the scanner was better than watching the TV. And to be honest Speed coverage is better than none but is very lacking when on a super speedway. They just don't have the equipment to cover the race as we are use to seeing.

The second race was defintely better. Hopefully the 500 will be more like it.

I see my driver, Jeff Burton, won his duel race. COOL! Maybe he will do well in the 500!

Well right now it appears to be anyones race come Sunday. I am looking forward to seeing what the trucks do tonight and how the Nationwide cars do tomorrow. Reading some stuff about the engines for Sundays race. Lot of those motors got warm past few days and some not going to say how warm either. If I heard on the scanner right Kyle Busch was going to swap motors and go tail back. If I was a owner or crew chief I would make the same call. It's a long race and lots going to happen I do believe motor wise. Starting from the back with fresh engine might just be the over all edge to winning the race.

I can't wait for the truck race tonight!!! It is usually one of the best races of the weekend. It will also be nice seeing a black number 3 starting from the pole.

I'm starting to become one. I don't watch the trucks every week but I usually root for him when I watch it now. When I first heard that he was getting into the series I figured it was just because his grandfather is Childress but he has impressed so far.
