No one in the stands.  10 years ago the stands were full for a truck race.  We lived sown there in 2006-7. I went to all the events of 2007 speed weeks.   Huge crowds every event.  I have to admit though I haven't been to a race anywhere since then.

Kinda hard to grade attendance on a make-up day.  Race was scheduled for a Saturday night.  How many people had planned on THAT day and then had to bolt that next morning.

I doubt many.  Most are local or are in town for the entire week.  When I lived down there it was a lot of locals at the races.

the 5 minute rule at a restrictor plate track is stupid. Also, this stage bull is gonna tear up alot of race cars this year. Brian France should be banned from motorsports.

Ive struggled with hanging with a driver since Jarrett retired. I kinda lean towards Larson and the Busch brothers. I will definately be on the Bowyer wagon though. Hes gonna win the 500. Book it.

I've always liked the Chevy drivers for the most part, I've always been a GM person for any domestic vehicle. Johnson, Elliot, McMurray, Newman....

I like Truex, Harvick, and Jr. I can't make myself cheer for a Busch. Trevor Bayne is a sleeper pick. Roush Fenway could be competitive since they've cut down to two teams. Erik Jones is a rookie to watch.

Once again, the Xfinity drivers can't drive to save their lives.

Last May, the Coca-Cola 600 took 3 hours and 44 minutes.
This 267 Mile race at Daytona is currently 3 hours and 5 minutes in, with 13 laps still to go.

I liked the 5 minute rule at first, but it looks horrible now in the longer Xfinity race.    It's going to kill some Championship drives this year.

3 hours and 26 minutes (or close)

Ryan Reed did some amazing mirror driving to hold off Kahne, Austin Dillon, and Kaselowski. Looked like Kahne showed some mercy coming off Turn 2 on the last lap.

Didn't watch a lap. Went to a local dirt track race and the track didn't bother to put a drop of water on the track until an hour before the scheduled start time, then all they could say that it's going to be a little dusty because it's a day race. NO you start working the track in the morning of the race. Won't be making that trip again.

You'd see less glitter and hair gel at the circus than what you see on some of the drivers.

Danica didnt even make it through driver intros without getting lapped. You guys better get ready to hear about nothing but Dale Jr for the next 3-4 hours. Maybe 5-6 hours if this race is anything like the 2 previous wreckfests this weekend.

All Toyotas pit together, early enough to finish the first segment on one tank of fuel.  Suarez missed his pit.

Big wreck.  Kyle Busch, Dale Jr., Kenseth, Mears, Erik Jones all involved.

Kyle's car spun around on its own - right rear went down.  18 and 88 both had fast cars.

Not being able to replace body panels is really stupid.  As is 5 minutes of total repair time.  Dale Jr. can't even make a lap and come back down pit road for more repairs. 

"Obviously Goodyear tires just aren't very good at holding air." Kyle Busch with the quote of the weekend.

McMurray tried to make it 4 wide where there wasn't room.

Fastest cars of the day are damaged.

Another big one.  Too many to list.

Suarez is destroyed.  Keselowski has heavy rear end damage.  McMurray damaged to make up for avoiding the last wreck he caused.  Hamlin with more damage.

McMurray may be looking for a new job after this season - he caused that one too trying to go 3-wide on the restart.

That's like three wrecks he's helped cause.
