Daytona 500 Thread ("Official" or otherwise)

Because I think "Official" threads about anything on DU are silly.

Post your comments about the race, but perhaps it would be best if the "I hate racing" or "I don't understand the appeal" comments would best be placed on the other threads.


The Start your engines command has been given @ 1:20.

LET'S GO RACING!

5. Woohoo, Michael Waltrip is going backward

Sorry, but I think that pompous ass and his egotistical brother are not right in the head.

13. Well, Michael is running #26 in honor of Newton, and the town seal is on his ride, so ...

I'm not quite as down on him as you are.

7. This is the 'Gen 6' car

8. YELLOW, YELLOW, YELLOW!

First incident.

Multi car on the front stretch.


(BTW, "Yellow, Yellow, Yellow" is what is heard over race control and almost every other radio channel on such an occasion.)

10. Gordon is still running hot

He had that trash on the nose before the caution, got that off, but it isn't any better. (Heard on MRN.)
