Daytona 500 Starting Lineup Is Set
NASCAR's warning about bump drafting was taken to heart by drivers in yesterday's Gatorade Duels. Elliot Sadler took the checkered flag in the first race in the #38 M&M's Ford. Jeff Gordon, already on the outside pole, cruised to what appeared to be an easy win in the second race. Drivers seems cautious, wanting to protect their cars and not incur the wrath of NASCAR officials, which made the rain-delayed races somewhat dull to watch, at least to me. I guess it is what it is. No one got hurt and now the starting lineup for the 500 is set.
Also, here's the starting lineup for the GM Flex Fuel, 250, tonight's Craftsman Truck series race. Mark Martin's on the pole. They race at 8.
The sprinkles that kept the cars off the track yesterday gave me more time to hang out and chat with fans under the front stretch grandstands, get fan opinions on the new Daytona 500 cologne, and meet the self-proclaimed NASCAR princesses on a tram ride back to the infield. I'll be posting some nice photos and relating their great stories shortly.
