Its 5:32pm and The Superbowl of the NASCAR season is over. Here are some things that stood out for ME during the The Daytona 500. Be advised , these are my own opinions and NOT necessarily those of this website or anyone associated with it.
Fans that are new to NASCAR need to watch old videos where rubbin' was racin' and if my driver is behind your driver and too slow, its no holds barred Baby – Move or be Moved !
If you cant handle aggressive driving get out of the sport, its called R A C I N G for a reason.
The Gen 6 car was hyped up as a car that would bring on great racing. Racing like we have not seen in 20 years. Didn't happen. Not sure if it was the drivers or the cars. It was pretty much a freight train most of the race. We shall see what happens as the season moves on.
Kasey Kahne can NOT catch a break in the early season of NASCAR ever! However, don’t count him out , he ended up 4th in Sprint Cup Standings last year.
People who have NO CLUE about NASCAR should SHUT THE HELL UP with their opinions. You KNOW NOTHING, YOU HAVE NO SAY. Just go away....
Danica Patrick led a lap in the 500 and earned another record for women in NASCAR. I'm so happy for her. On the other hand, many female race fans really despise her. I don’t get it. She does not have to prove anything to me. The hate is unwarranted.
50 Cent went in for a kiss to race reporter Erin Andrews and epically failed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xIh8V0oAN2s
I did not catch Ray Lewis at the race until it was over....strange, he was low key. Go figure!
Rookie Driver that NO ONE talked about during race week, Michael McDowell No.38 ended with an impressive 9th place finish. His post race interview allowed me the pleasure to remember why I love this sport.
I will always miss my friend, Dale Earnhardt …oh and Jimmie Johnson , won.
