    Daytona 500

    Anyone else out there lost interest since Johnson started dominating? I used to get pretty pumped up this time of year but now I'm just kinda blah about the whole thing.

    Re: Daytona 500

    I'm pumped for the 500. With the new car, the 1-2 mile track races have become so predictable and boring...but I love the plate races. Hard to believe another season is only 2 weeks away...

    Should be better this year since they are getting rid of the wing and allowing bump drafting at the super speedways.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think that the 3 week offseason that nascar has is entirely TOO LONG....

    Re: Daytona 500

    I'm looking forward to Daytona and the season in general, I think w/ the rule changes it's going to make for an interesting season. I'd like to see JJ get knocked off this year, guessing Stewart may have the best shot? (Well, outside Hendrick)

    Re: Daytona 500

    The day of the Daytona 500 is one of the days I look forward to most all year, since it signals the beginning of race season. This is important, because the opening day of race season is also the opening day of Sunday afternoon nap season for me. Nothing, not even golf, puts me to sleep quite so well.

    Re: Daytona 500

    Well, I'm looking forward to it for the first time ever as we are going. Not a NASCAR guy, but I'm not against the sport either. We're taking my mom as it's something she's always wanted to do. Should be a fun family vacation.

    Got decent seats, keep hearing we need to dress warm and in layers - as it gets very cold once they start racing. Gonna be a pain traveling overalls.

    Re: Daytona 500

    Also tired of hearing about his(JJ) "4 in a row". I think Petty and Earnhardt Sr. could've done just as good if they only had to be great for 10 races!!

    It's an awesome experience IMO. I haven't been to a track that large but just going to a race in general is amazing. It may not make you a fan, but I think you'll enjoy the experience.

    Went to Newton for Nationwide race last year and to Talladega the year before and it is way more fun in person!!

    I need to look up the camera policy for that day. If my uncle was going, we would have been able to get passes onto the field.

    Do you guys/gals have a driver you follow? Denny Hamlin here. Hoping he has a little better luck this year.....too many DNF's last year.
