It’s NASCAR’s opening and most prestigious race of the year, the Daytona 500!
If you think DRS is too artificial, then maybe the spectacle of 43 of NASCAR’s best drivers racing around in circles for three hours under the beautiful BRU BRU SKIIIIIIIES of Daytona Beach, Florida will get your racing pulse… er… racing.
But Mag, what IS the Daytona 500?
Basically, 43 drivers racing around a 2.5mile superspeedway mere inches apart from each other in a big pack at over 200mph for 200 laps.
I know that absolutely no one else cares about this race, but I’m going to be watching and posting along in this thread even if I’m the only one who does so. I hope those of you who’ve never watched the 500 before and don’t have anything else to do give it a shot, because you never know, you might actually enjoy it!
Great Write-Up Mag, in fact it was your post last year that got me into NASCAR! Austin Dillon won last years Nationwide Series (NASCAR’s GP2)and is the first driver to use the 3 since Dale Earnhardt’s death in 2001, so it’s kinda a big deal to hardcore fans of the sport :P
Can I just point out how unwatchable American motorsport is? ads so damn constantly… I always bang on about it when I watch the big races (both 500s), but come on… really… Food, food, pick up truck, more food, insurance…
“We’ll return to this commercials, after this motorsport break”.
