    I know I'm one of the few Yankee boys that enjoy watching cars going around in circles really fast for hours at a time, but will anyone else be watching the Daytona 500 today? If so, who are you rooting for. I'm a Tony Stewart fan myself. Hopefully the new surface will make this more entertaining than last year's repair feast.

    Oh, F Double J.

    They were doing an interview with Brian Keslowski last week and I only saw the Keslowski and thought, damn, Brad packed a few on. :facepalm:

    Haven't seen any Brad interviews this year yet, so not sure if he did.

    Maybe he is bulking up for a fight with Busch.

    Yea, even the Budweiser Shootout was good racing. It was fast and I don't have a problem with all the drafting. Nothing like 6 drivers going into a turn at 200 mph side by side by side.

    Oh and I forgive you for being a Double J fan. :facepalm:
