    Gentlemen (and any ladies, too), Start your engines!

    Yes, yes, it's almost time - any NASCAR fans here - I know there are a couple and maybe with the people visiting/moving in from the Dome we picked up a few more. We've been successful at maintaining threads for all the other major sports, so hopefully we can keep this one going all season too.
    Come on in and talk about all aspects of NASCAR - be it Winston Cup, Busch, the Trucks, or one of the "minor" series or your weekly short track. Who do you root for? Does one manufacturer have an advantage over the others? Going to any races? Jeff Gordon vs. Tony Stewart? Labonte brothers vs. Burton brothers? Safety, money, anything else...
    This week we have the Budweiser Shootout - always a fun taste to start the season off - I've had the chance to go a couple of times. I'm looking forward to watching this year as there is a bigger field due to all the pole winners last year. Ford's have been complaining since they got to the beach, will they have anything to show in this race, or are they saving it 'til Thursday or even next Sunday?

    Sterling Marlin and Dodge Will Dominate this year. Tony Stewert and Bobby Labontae will also do great this year but nothing can stop Dodge reclaim the top spot in motorsports.

    Well, the Fords didn't have much to show in qualifying yesterday, let's see how they do in the "Shootout" today!

    Now why did you have to go and say that. Mopars kick major ass. If they didn't why are the Ford and Chevy teams crying foul because the Mopars have stronger engines. I bet most people don't even know the Dodges were required to be taller and wider than the other brands to have more drag. Return to racing after 25 years and win their first pole and win 3 races in their first year is not bad. I won't even mention their dominance in the truck series. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I will say though that if Dodge doesn't win the championship I hope Gordon repeats. But pleazzze let's not hear any more about Earnhardt. Yes it was a tragedy, but I hope NASCAR finally will let it go.

    Twin 125s - one thing I hate about Daytona is you get so many extra people show up that have no intentions of running the full season. 125s is sometimes a good way to clear some of 'em out, as they usually don't have the stuff to compete, but still - an early accident that wipes out a bunch of regulars that had qualified poorly, and one or more of the interlopers could make the 500, knocking somebody out. Nothing like starting off the season with a DNQ. I wish NASCAR would just set the 43 teams at the start of the season and use qualifying to set the order of start, not who gets to start. Only sport I know of where established teams have to try out for every game.

    Forgive me people, but I really need to get this off my chest. Now that Dale Earnhardt is dead (a truly tragic loss), can we refer to his son as Dale Earnhardt, and not DE Jr. or Junior? Also, why do these folks insist on going by Jimmy, Kenny, Billy, Davy, Johnny, etc.? Most people stop that crap and go by Bill, Ken, Dave, Jim, etc. when they've matured a little bit. I know it's a southern thing, but I find it demeaning.

    And so it goes. Jim Spencer (see, that just doesn't sound right) missed the field getting caught up in an accident that was no fault of his own, while other drivers who wont be around for the full season avoided trouble and made the field. Maybe one of them will give up their ride for Jimmy (yeah, that sounds better).

    Southern thing? Boy, do I have stories about those. Seriously, what does it matter. He will still be referred to as Dale Earnhardt Jr. because his dad was in the same biz. Like Ken Griffey Jr. for example.

    It will take some time to get out of the mode, because Sr. is gone. No need to bash me because I'm typing this at work and wanted to keep it short.

    I'm looking forward to the new season.

    Fords looked bad in qualifying but let's see how they do in traffic... One thing with the restrictor-plate setups there's a huge variation on how well you run in clean air or in the pack. Don't write off Ford yet... plus it appears nascar is gonna give em another quarter inch on the rear spoiler so that may help em on Sunday.

    Something tells me Harvick's season last year wasn't a freshman fluke... I think he'll be a fun one to watch this year as well as Jr.

    Best finish by a Ford in the first race was 4th, in the second they could only muster 11th.

    Mark Martin & Jeff Burton for me, but don't think Mark Martin will ever win another race until he has a different sponsor!
