    Cool NASCAR 2013 info thread

    Well it's almost time for the Daytona 500 once again. It's next Sunday the 24th and all goes well, I'll get a chance to watch- or at least have a snooze in the recliner while it's on. I'm not as much a fan of the racing as I am of the mechanical/fabrication technology that goes into putting one of these cars on the track for 500 miles of red-line running. I hope to someday get a chance to poke around one of the engine builders and car builders facility's.
    The NASCAR site is http://www.nascar.com/en_us/sprint-cup-series.html
    The schedule is posted here- http://www.nascar.com/en_us/sprint-c.../schedule.html
    It gets a bit confusing as to the Sunday races and the different networks.
    So if you enjoy 800hp and 195mph and what it takes to achieve both, stay tuned. With, what it looks like at this time, Danica Patrick on the pole it should be a great race. OM

    Yep, Danica takes the No1 spot at 196.4mph. It's a lot of pressure, I hope she does well

    Hadn't looked at much yet...is Stenhouse in the field for the 500 and anywhere near Danica?

    Awesome to see the GoDaddy driver up front in good equipment

    Awesome to see the GoDaddy driver just about anywhere I think Stenhouse is around 10 back. I don't think 2 seconds separates the 1st 18.

    But the over hype is getting to me. You would think there was only one driver in the race if you follow the talking heads (with an occasional mention of her boyfriend).
    'You can say what you want about the South, but I almost never hear of anyone wanting to retire to the North.
