Dale Earnhardt Jr Grabs Another Daytona 500 Win

Dale Earnhardt Jr knows how tough it is to win the Daytona 500 as he has been close before, but Sunday was Dale Jr's day as he took the checkered flag to grab the win in the rain delayed race. Denny Hamlin finished second in The Great American Race. Junior now can work on rest of the season. It would be nice to see Junior win a championship and get the monkey off his back.

Austin Dillion Puts The No.3 Back On Pole At Daytona

You probably could not right a better start to the season for RCR Racing. Richard Childress decided to bring back the No.3 having his grandson Austin Dillion drive it and right now it looks like a great move. Dillion took the pole in the Daytona 500 with a run at 196.019 mph. Greg Biffle will start beside Dillion in a Ford which surprised a lot of people.

I will have to admit that I never seen this coming. Yes, Austin Dillion is a good race car driver, but I was surprised that he got the pole. This will just give more excitement to the Daytona 500. This could be one of the best ways to start the season. A win would top it off for Austin Dillion, but right now I bet he is happy with his results so far.

Danica Patrick Should Earn A Spot Not Be Given One

After I read about Danica Patrick and how she got her spot in the Daytona 500 I find myself not really happy the way it went down. I mean yes they bought there spot and that is legal under Nascar rules. I just do not think it is fair to other drivers trying to make the field. Yes, people will say they could have bought the spot, but most do not have the backing or that kind of money. If they want to get into the Daytona 500 they must race in. This is what Danica Patrick should have been forced to do as well. I am against people buying spots into this race.

Nascar has gotten away from a level playing field and that is why one-car teams have very little chance for success these days. Rickey Rudd found out how tough it was even with a good sponsor. Earning your spot in the big show is how it should be done. Dancia Patrick may have qualified anyways, but I still would have liked to see her earn it. Buying spots because you have deep pockets in my opinion is just wrong in my opinion.
