    It’s “boogity, boogity, boogity, let’s go racing boys” not “yee-haw, let’s go racing boys”

    And I will be rooting for Marcos Ambrose inthe number 9 Stnley Ford. Welcome back to the Ford family Marcos, let’s get back to those winning ways.

    Will watch the last few laps probably. Of course I’ll be cheering on Montoya (If he’s racing, I wouldn’t even know)

    What times it on (GMT if poss), i recorded it last year but the damn track broke apart and so the entire race wasnt recorded and i got about 50% of it. Im not massive into NASCAR (or even INDY) but i try to watch the big races, as well as things like Le Man

    I’ll record it and the fast forward and watch all the crashes. I’m hoping it’ll be like the NCWTS race, with two big ones and plenty of smaller ones. This tracks fast, like 200+ mph fast. I’m hoping for blow overs, roll overs, and of course the big one.

    In case you haven’t noticed, I only watch NASCAR for the crashes xD

    I always watch the Daytona 500, and this year is no exception.

    Having to wake up at 3:30am after an 8 hour drive and 3 1/2 hours sleep is a bit of a pain, though!

    A rookie 20 year old winning one of the biggest NASCAR races of the season driving for a part time team. Impressive! And donuts on the grass too! We need them in F1 without the driver getting fined (on the track only though Lewis :P)

    Woah, never thought he could win it, but I think everyone could see he had something in him during that race. Super impressive! I think I may have a reason to watch this dreadful sport. On second thought…. Nah.

    I dont like all the Stop/Starts (that generally comes with most US sports) and the constant commercial breaks. But the Daytona 500 is worth a watch, mainly as its the first sign that F1 is about to begin and gets that thirst for racing into me. But at what, 4-5hrs long? cant do that every week, not even Korea was that long!!

    Well done to the winner.

    yeah it was a good race. too many cautions though, it gets boring sitting in the stands waiting for the restart. last year with the pothole was horrible.
