The NASCAR Cup boys are hitting the track at Daytona for this year's first practice! Let the racing begin!!

All forms of racing are welcome here, so let's start discussing topics speed freaks!

How will Danica do in stock car racing, for her first full-time ride?

Will Tony Stewart repeat as champ?

What about F1? Will it be dominated again like last year?

Will Ashley Force win a title this year?

What will happen in the IRL after losing their biggest star and the last race of the year death of Dan Wheldon?

Congrats to "the dinger" and his team for winning the Rolex 24 at Daytona a few weeks ago!! I think he will shine in that 22 car for Penske.

Drivers, START YOUR ENGINES!!!

:thumbsup:

Man, what a crazy Daytona 500. The jet fuel fire was unreal but the way they fixed the track was...good 'ol Yankee ingenuity.

I'm glad Danica got her rear end fixed. :^)

Also loved Kasey's spark shower. :^)

Where did ole Kasey Kahne finish? I wanted Harvick to finish better than 7th, but by the end of it just wanted him to get out of there in one piece!

If they would have foamed the fire in the first place, it wouldn't have gotten out of hand like it did. They were using hand held fire extinguishers when the fire first started - with 200 gallons of jet fuel spewing out! :blink: Just glad nobody got hurt, but another crazy 500 for sure! Not happy about ford winning, but Kenseth is alright. Just don't like the rest of his team or owner!

Looks like Kasey came in 23rd.

Half way through Christmas Day for us race fans. Great F1 race this morning from Monaco. Currently the Indy 500 is almost halfway through and later 600 miles at Charlotte. The best day of racing the whole year, IMO.

Al Gore does not approve! :hysterical:

At least they are spreading the pollution around....

Congrats to Dario on winning his 3rd 500 earlier today!

Time to put some steaks n shrooms on before the 600 begins!

Holy Moly! How blessed can one guy be? Forget the three Indianapolis 500s Dario Franchitti has won...the guy is married to Ashley Judd! Talk about being in clover!

Well played, sir.

Kurt Busch suspended for the Pocono race this weekend due to verbally berating a reporter last week in Dover. He did the same thing last year, and was fired from Penske Racing after the Homestead race, with Dr. Jerry Punch.

AJ Allmendinger suspended indefinitely by NASCAR for failing his drug test.

Stock cars racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. First race for the Nationwide Series there and for the Rolex Sports Car Series.

It's also the 10-year anniversary of safer barriers (soft-walls) being implemented at race tracks. Who knows how many lives have been saved by them....
