So, after nearly two years away due to rotten races and general hokiness, I'm watching the Sprint Unlimited race in Daytona tonight.

The Good:

The new car looks great. Hopefully it'll race that way, too.

Brad Keselowski is good on TV, but they should let him do shots during the commercial breaks.

The Bad:

The race format is lame and contrived. Choose Miss Sprint Cup's firesuit? WTF?

Ol' DW makes my brain sad.


I'll be interested to see how the 500 goes next Sunday.

They fixed the tandem racing at Daytona. But it sure looked like single file was the only way to go. The low line wasn't working.

It was super boring, yawn.

I still say the only way to fix NASCAR is to ban pitting under yellow, make them drive it in there under speed every time...you can't shake up spec racing on the track, shake it up in the pits.

Very impressive, she got the #1 spot last year in Nationwide too. I really liked that ghost feature they had on tv today, she did her homework and kept the car right in the fast part of the track.

Man, it was good to see Danica with that big smile and personality! I was shocked. For the most part, the drivers were BORING for the past several years; prima donnas, many unsmiling, uncaring about being a 'good ole boy'. Some were good. I like Bayne in that Wood's Bros. 21, and hope he kicks butt at Daytona again. He's alright! I"m liking being able to find Chevys/Fords and Dodges now. I hope the Toyota's Wreck!!!
