In better news, there are a bunch of firsts in this years race. Including pole sitter Dave Gilliland, there are four rookies in the field, the other three being David Reutimann, Juan Montoya, and David Ragan. Joining the four rookies will be the first attempts by Toyota to get into the NASCAR circuit. Previously, the stock car racing business has played host to Ford, Chevrolet, and Dodge. There are four Toyota Camry’s in the starting field, including Michael Waltrip. It will be interesting to see how they compete; Ford and Chevrolet have the most cars in the field.
You may have remembered way back at the start of this, I mentioned that I wasn't much of a fan. That is a fact that must have you asking yourself why I wrote this. Well, it is pretty simple, the race is around the corner, and it does have some interesting aspects to it, and I thought I would add a little bit of the outsider looking in. I may even watch the race.
Oh yeah, for the record, I predict Dale Earnhardt, Jr. will win his second Daytona 500. If you have read my predictions for other areas of entertainment, you will also know that I have been known to be wrong. From time to time.
