Results: Martin Wins Truck Race; Yeley Grabs Busch Pole; Bump Draft Wrecks IROC
Mark Martin won the Daytona 250 Craftsman Truck series race from the pole position. Ted Musgrave said afterward that he and teammate Todd Bodine had a plan to pick off Martin after a late-race caution that led to a green-white-checker flag situation. Their plans were undone when Ron Hornaday's spin out that caused a wreck and brought out the yellow flag. Sounds like sour grapes to me. The fans love Mark, so they got what they wanted - legitimately. The unofficial race results are here.
J.J. Yeley took the Busch poll for the Hershey's Kissables. Here's today's starting lineup. As a JGR race fan, I wish Yeley all the luck in the world.
The IROC race got a little dicier than normal. Matt Kenseth won, but there were a couple of nasty crashes, including one in which Frank Kimmel bumped Steve Kinser into Tony Stewart. Kinser flipped over Stewart, then took a long ride upside down. It took 12 minutes to cut Kinser out of his car. He was able to walk away, as did Stewart - in disgust. The bump draft at its finest. Here are the race results.
We're getting down to it today. One to go. As Old DW says: Boogity, boogity boogity.
