Excuse me, but I have a problem. Doesn’t it seem to make sense that if you’ve got the most famous race in NASCAR, with the yes of the world watching, that you’d fix a pothole on the track? How does this happen. As the Daytona 500 rolled this weekend, drivers were forced to contend with a pothole on the corse between the first and second turns. Sending people rushing out on to the track during the race to fix it just dopesn’t seem to cut it in my mind.
Otherwise the Daytona 500 was a pretty decent race. Dale Jr. fans got punched in the gut once again as their hero made a valiant effort, moving up through the pack and pushing at the end. Alas, Jamie Mcmurray beat him to the punch and claimed the first win the NASCAR season. Now it’s on to next week and the Auto Club 500 and the Auto Club Speedway in sunny Cal.
