The Pit Stop

Some Daytona Thoughts....

Another year of Wide-Open coverage from TNT and I think it went a bit better than last year. We need less commercials and more race action and this is around the best we can get.

Tony Stewart must have been really sick if he got out of his car, a rare thing for a NASCAR driver to do.  J.J. Yeley was solid in back-up duty imo.

I think with Jeff Gordon in the spot he was after he spun out at the end of the race it was okay to continue on with the race.

It was nice seeing NASCAR got the finish of the race right after the last caution came out.

NASCAR is going to have to force some new qualifying rules.  Forcing cars to make some major changes on pit road like an alternator belt is a no-no.  All cars need to qualify with same equipment on.  If you can't make it into the race, you just failed. Having the Wood Brothers team go behind the wall for a number of laps was just stupid.
