After 11 seasons in IndyCar, Brazil’s Tony Kanaan had become his generation’s Michael Andretti: a top open-wheel driver whose likeness, somehow, was nowhere to be found on the Borg-Warner Trophy. But after several close calls, Kanaan finally got to drink the milk at Indianapolis. (He chose two percent.)

Just don’t call it ‘NASCAR’s Super Bowl’, it’s more like baseball’s Opening Day if anyone else, merely the first of 36 Cup races on the schedule. If the NFL were truly like NASCAR, they would let all 32 teams on the field at once, with the game somehow ending with the Oakland Raiders winning.

The thrill of victory…and the agony of defeat. No other sport so brilliantly captures the roller coaster ride of this phrase as well as restrictor plate racing in NASCAR. Last night’s Daytona 500, postponed numerous times due to rain but ultimately won by Matt Kenseth, was a quintessential example.
Under caution with 40 laps to go in last night’s Daytona 500, driver Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a jet dryer truck igniting a fireball that melted the jet dryer to the track.

As you surely know by now, rain prevented the Daytona 500 from ever starting yesterday. Here is all of the last minute information you need to know about the postponed running of the Daytona 500 (with a little help from Ricky Bobby).
Just in case you DON’T follow NASCAR, I am going to use this Daytona 500 preview to give you my prediction for this year’s race and then three reasons why you should watch today’s Daytona 500 and consider following the sport a little more closely.
Danica Patrick will make her Sprint Cup debut this Sunday at Daytona. By any measures, Patrick is the most successful female driver in history, and over the past several decades women drivers have demonstrated over and over again that auto racing is truly a coed sport.
