The new season for NASCAR is rapidly approaching. :)
I thought I would start a thread up for fans of the sport on here.
ESPNEWS is doing a "NASCAR Media Day" 3 hour special today.They are doing lots of interviews with alot of the drivers,owners,etc.
Here is the link to the official site for NASCAR.

And here is a link for the Sprint Cup Series schedule.

The season will start this Saturday (2/7),with the Budweiser Shootout at Daytona.Start time is scheduled for 8PM ET.
FOX will provide live coverage of the event.

From nascar.com:
Tony Stewart is "smoking hot",so to say,with Goodyear after one of teammate Ryan Newman's tires blew out and caused a crash involving both drivers.
Needless to say,teammate Ryan Newman isn't very happy today either.
The incident occured earlier today,during the final Cup practice before the big race tomorrow.
The result of the crash forces both drivers to go to backup cars for the 500 tomorrow.

"Smoke" takes out some of his "Goodyear frustration" by winning the Camping World 300 at Daytona today.

Someone should smack Jr. upside the head tonight.
Missed his pit once.
On the white line (one lap penalty) for another.
And then participating (if not causing) The Big One (kind of).

Too bad they called the race so quickly. I was at a Pepsi 400 there when the spent 3 hours waiting for the rain to stop. Race ended around midnight.

Yeah,I saw that earlier...so much for the so-called "Super Bowl of Racing",eh? :lol:
NASCAR had postponed races in the past due to bad weather,and finished them the next day.
It seems that those days are over,if they're going to call the Daytona 500 with 48 laps to go...
Anyway,congrats to Kenseth and Harvick.
:grin:

That would be like MLB declaring someone the winner in the WS because of rain.NASCAR calling the race yesterday and the race starting at 3:30 is a good example of the networks having too much control.

Yeah, if the race had started "on time", it would have finished before the showers came. And NASCAR still does postpone races and finish them the next day - if they're called before half the distance is raced.
