So who do you think will win the race between Richard Petty & Danica? Tony Stewart said he will be glad to provide the cars. I'd love to see it!

I heard that if they didn't restart by 2000 (8pm) EST, that they would wait until tomorrow evening to run the race :scratch:

Some crazy cartoon is on FOX right now :right:

Apparently, some people thought Jimmie Johnson had won the Daytona 500 a few hours ago :rolleyes:

Autos Fans confused by Daytona replay - ESPN

I guess if FOX replayed Super Bowl 46 during Tue blackout at Super Bowl 47, some people might have thought that the New York Giants won it two years in a row :sleepy:

Canada, eh?
Junebug says he is going to join Twitter now that he won the Daytona 500. I bet he has a million followers by the end of this week.

Just checked. Dale has sent out 3 tweets so far and already has 271,500 followers.
What a day at Daytona! Took nearly 12 hours, but well worth the wait. In case you missed his new commercial- this is great:

A #3 Car back in Nascar for the 1st time since that tragic day in 2001 and takes the poll!

Earhardt wins the Great American Race!

He now has won it twice as many times as his Dad
:jawdrop:


For those who don't use twitter- here's his latest:



Came to SI now in NYC and ran into @Kelly Clark fresh from #Sochi2014!




Look who I ran into at the Daytona Experience. Dad's Happy!

That's a cool pic of Dale in front of the statue of his dad :)

What do they do with the winning car now that Daytona USA, er, D5X is closed? :scratch:

Daytona 500 winner is always on Letterman the following Monday- Jr has been waiting a long time for this! Must see TV!






Filming right now for tonight's show :bigclap:



Warning- he may be a little out of it- heard him on the Morning Drive this morning on NASCAR Radio and he said he only had the chance to drink 2 beers and only got 60 minutes of sleep!
