Shoulda put it all in one thread.

In order, we have:

1.) Daytona Sprint Cup Qualifying to determine the first row and line-up of the Duels.
2.) UNOH Battle if the Beach
3.) Budweiser Duels
4.) NextEra Energy Resources 250 (Trucks)
5.) DRIVE4COPD 300
6.) Daytona 500

And all the practices and media **** in-between.

What do you mean with all in one?

Edit:Ahem,
Motors TV, will (hopefull) continue the tradition of airing NNS wihout the massive breaks. The Sony Portable will be here for Daytona yes, but haters should mind that it's now a Long stretch until the next Jenn appearence, so Cope with it!
Next weeks race will also feature the most beautiful nascar car, in the most hideous livery since the Honda Earth.
edit: Motors TV Shedule now posted.

I want to watch that race they're going to have on the mini-temporary oval on the backstraight. At least the first viewing should be fun.

So this Quali is to set the front row of the 500, and for those unlucky enough to get wiped out in the Duels. Right?

Fox really needs to find new ad inventory. They only seem to have 5 and they're repeated constantly. We are in for a long half-season.

It is. But I half expected them to end the session after she completed her run.

Do they not understand it's a 38 race season? They need to pace themselves on the Patrick-Stenhouse stuff.

I gotta give Danica credit, as intense as she comes across in interviews, she's one of the very few in NASCAR that can give an answer that shows some thought went into it. Everyone else sounds like they're reading out of the Racing Driver Cliche manual.

Kasey Kahne usually, soft spots for Jeff Gordon and Montoya/Ambrose as the furrreners. I'm only really there to experience it. I should be able to post pics but i'll probably use my camera and upload them later at the hotel.

Headwind down the backstraight? Seems like everyone is losing a tenth between exiting turn 2 and entering 3.

Kes reminds me a lot of Valetino Rossi, dangerous in races, harmless in qualify.

I think Bowyer has a future on the commentary box.

I like the new commercial with him in the Toyota dealership. Has a bit of Woody Harrelson swagger to him.

Good for Danica, backing up what she said weeks ago. I know it is a long, long, long season and that taking Pole mean little if you are not there at the end of the race. For all the anti-prose being thrown at her, she is no slouch and can pedal a race car.

:cool:

The cynic in me had a feeling about this.

First race with the new gen. cars. First full season for Danica. Daytona 500 Pole - mega PR.

Not surprised at all.
