Once again I find Daytona 500 tickets coming up on my schedule, an event that has as much connection to springtime as pretty girls in short, both of which I like to watch. And so the long unwinding to a new NASCAR year and the inevitable excitement and suspense of a long grinding NASCAR season. Who am I to argue ? All I can do is just roll with it and go.
Also once again I see a familiar litany of names before me. Kyle Busch is being talked about as being a contender for the Sprint Cup, as is Kurt. So too, the NASCAR season begins with high hopes for one of the most enduring and patient groups in sports, the Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan club. dale Jr. rewarded his fans with a pole position in the Daytona 500 this season, a fine start to a new year in a career that’s been totally baffling to me. Then again, may things are baffling to me but one thing that isn’t: Daytona 500 tickets. they’re just awesome.Eric Drouant
