They called a pretty good race quickly, but it looks like it will be raining in Daytona for at least the next 2 hours.

It was a quick call. Congratulations to Matt!!! As an 88 fan, I was glad to see Junior finally stand up for himself instead of taking all of the blame as he usually does.

They could have waited 2 hours and given another hour to dry the track. With only 48 laps to go it would have been over by midnight.

Still better than a 101 lap race I guess.

He was pretty hot and said that what happened was not intentional. He said that he was just racing as hard as he could and was trying to win. It was nice to see him finally stop taking the blame for everything that happens on the track.

I think everyone was just anxious knowing that the rain was coming. For the blame, I'd say that both would have to share the blame. Vickers' block was really dumb and Junior should have known that he hadn't cleared Vickers enough to get back in line. That's just racing. JMO.

Darrell Waltrip did say that he liked the interview with Junior and he really liked what Junior said during the interview.

“They didn’t even start till 4 did they?”

Exactly the problem. If they started the race on time they would have finished 200 laps...on time.

Seems there was at least 5 hours of pre-race BS today. Didn’t Daytona used to start at around noon or 1:00pm EST? (I haven’t watched regularly in a very long time).

The leaders couldn’t catch back up.

“My goal is to keep Junior behind me,” Vickers said. “I went to block him. I beat him to the yellow line and then he just turned us. To wreck somebody intentionally like that in front of the entire field is really kind of dangerous. That’s my problem with it.”

Vickers also wondered why NASCAR did not penalize Earnhardt for aggressive driving, particularly since it issued a five-lap penalty to Jason Leffler in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race for a similar incident.” http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/news?slug=ap-nascar-daytona500-accident&prov=ap&type=lgns

I don’t like Leffler but I thought NASCAR’s penalty on Saturday was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen since I started watching stock car racing 50 years ago. Five laps? What’s up with that? I just didn’t see any “agressive driving.” What happened today was “just racing.” Vickers was dumb to try to block the 88 and the 88 should have made sure he was clear before he tried to get back into line.

Dumb and dumber, the two of 'em, then?

****Didn’t Daytona used to start at around noon or 1:00pm EST?****

I was thinking the same thing. I loved when these races started at 1PM. Right about the time I was getting home from church the race would be starting. Perfect timing. Unfortunately, not anymore. As a result I have been watching these races a bit less than I used to.
