Oh Boy!! darn near everybody got wiped out in the last turn.. wow..
#30 Buesher wins it.. wow..
One crazy a$$ finish
James Buescher wins it.. dang.. never heard of him either.
wow. Winner of Survivor Daytona Nationwide..
I didn’t know the Frat Order of Eagles was still around.
Great PR opportunity.

Involved in the accident are Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch and others.

Kurt and Kyle Busch clear in Turn 1, but Joey Logano and Trevor Bayne have a run on the outside.
4:03 p.m. ET — James Buescher is the winner! Wow.
Uhhh... Didn’t Buscher go below the yellow to increase his postion
he may get a dispensation given the circumstances
to avoid a wreck , I think it’s OK.
Buescher is a Plano Texas boy.
Plano is where my aunt and uncle live. My home away from home when I go to TMS.
I find solace in the fact a nuuby won it and most of the bent tin was the Ringers...
Maybe so, maybe no. As I noted up thread, we go the rain about 24 hours after the wind. Daytona Beach had the wind yesterday.
Caught the last 3 laps of the Nationwide - wow. I’d like to have heard some interviews w/Kurt/Kyle/Tony but they cut away to basketball.
Typical Sunday as pre-race starts at 9:00am Pacific and we’ll be headed to church then Costco shopping after getting all spiritual.. I’ll have to be sure to record a couple of extra hours in preparation for a rain delay.
Got our pkg for the Vegas race yesterday & it includes pit road passes. That’ll be a first for us. We’ve walked a track (Dover) but have never been on pit road.
Now I know why the Pilot’s, and Flying J fuel’s gone up lately...
guess I’ll start fueling up at the Loves T S.
looks like weather at your house next week.
"The Rick Santorum for President campaign announced Saturday will sponsor Tony Raines' No. 26 Front Row Motorsports car in tomorrow's Daytona 500. Raines is a decided underdog who entered Speedweeks without a guaranteed spot in NASCAR's biggest race, but he made it based on his time trials speed."
Also heard that Mitt will be at the race.
It wasn’t quite as destructive as the end of the truck race, but it wasn’t from lack of effort! LOL
Go pray for us heathens, we’ll hold the rain so you don’t miss a drop. :)
After you hit pit road, it will be time to go riding, or better yet, driving.
