Default Daytona 500. 2/26/2017

Anyone watching?

Did a search and did not see a thread on this race.

We went two years ago.
Although it was a mostly uneventful race it was a great time with great weather.

Yup.

Hamlin ran over an air hose on 1st pit but it looks like NASCAR missed it.

And I should add, it will be interesting to see how this 'stage' racing goes. Toyota's pitted early in stage 1 in an attempt to get out ahead.

We'll see.

In theory the wife and I are watching. She's playing on Instagram and I'm playing on my phone as I'm about 8hrs into smoking a whole bone in butt and will pull it any minute.

I'd be lying if I could tell you who was leading if I didn't look up at the TV.

My bro drove his RV from San Diego out to the race. He said he was in the pits yesterday and toured a big rig. His friends flew in to join him.

He's having a ball!

I HATE plate racing.
I wish they would go to smaller engines and eliminate the restrictor place.

Racing was just as exiting or more when they were running around at 170 or so.

Hate plate racing.

Danica Patrick just excited the race. The rating dropped by 10 viewers.

Its racing but McMurray #1 went 4 wide and caused 48. to lose the aerodynamics at the end of the back straight away. He caused that pile-up.
