I remember the 2002 Daytona 500 like yesterday - Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick - very young West Coast drivers - Just trying to find fame and consistency - Starting on the front row

It didnt end well for any of them that day

BUT THEY ARE LEADING NOW - They both won 500  - this is definitely full circle for those two

THE BACKSTORY HAS BEEN PUT TOGETHER to the best of my ability

 

BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE - THIS IS A BIG PILEUP AND ITS TAKEN OUT SOME SITTING DUCKS

[11] BLOWS A REAR TIRE - [20] AND [11] Gibbs Toyotas DEMOLISHED [24] Terrible terrible damage- No injuries as we know - Denny having had too many scares - he went airborne! AWFUL development as many great teams are now taken out, with TEN LAPS REMAINING

 

[51] Was the car that torally had no where to go - smashed the [11] and [7] Drove into the crash behind them. [83] Reutimann also has some smashed in pixels

Feeling Terrible for those teams, They NEEDED this great run and the bonus money. A lot of that, Gone now.

[16] Greg Biffle may have won out here having had the Wonderful Fortune and reaction , managing to Avoid this 5 car pileup


CAUTION - [5] Kahne, the frontrunner, Got Struck by [9] Ambrose while he tried to avoid Jimmie johnson [48]
No injuries [9] Ambrose who was cauht in what is in my eyes an unintended MISHAP , now has to go to the back to patch up the door
 

Cannot Imagine who's going to win, so Lets step back and watch the leaderboards and TNT /MRN radio coverage


For Wheldon!

COKE ZERO 400 DAYTONA Recap

AND TO END THE RACE, Over 15 Cars get absolutely ravaged . I marvel at how tech has gone so far to the point that not only have all of the drivers walked away from these bad wrecks, That This time, the catch fence did the job and resisted flying debris from crossing over

Apologies for bringing up the February Incident , but safety is always under appreciated - it deserves a hand after tonight's goings.

 

Jimmie Johnson [48] survives and outright wins the 400 - He is part of the first team to sweep the Daytona 500 and This summer's Coke Zero Firecracker race, Since the 1982 Bobby Allison Team ! AMAZING Statement There

If You Didnt Get To See The Race, Search for the reruns and Youtube hilights . It ranks amongst one of the better events this year in my mind.

I'll stay on and do my best to recap MORE :)

 

Unofficial Finishes 48 14 29 15 55

Rest of Top 10 78 1 88 13 39

 

INVOLVED IN WRECK BY START FINISH 17 18 10 36 38 31 16 93 32 21 - Good finishes here though all in Top 20

 

Finishing Outside Top 20  2 34 47 33 35 9 87 INVOLVED IN WRECK BY TURN 1 95 99

 

Other finishers more than 1 lap down Reutimann -3 [93] Actually wound up with hood stuck on windscreen Blaney -4  [7]

And the aforementioned that were knocked out in prior incidents starting with [5] Kahne

 

That Outlaw Team [78] Furniture Row had an outstanding race - they are a'winner ' in my eyes - They put themselves inside top 10 in points tonight - Low key race not a bad thing- that means, They Outlasted And Stayed Out of mayhems way

 

The [15] Bowyer team and [55] all in the Top 5, huge money day for them except they have to pay up for the [56] 
Wonderful points day for Michael Waltrip Racing there

Tony Stewart [14] Is runner up To JJ BUT [10] finished fairly strong (in the last pileup, Danica was turned, it happens :P ) [39 Finished great in 10th - So those are a few GREAT results for teams that NEED THE POINTS


For Wheldon!

UPDATED ON MONDAY : ANOTHER Scary Development At Daytona, after the Nurburgring F1 on Sunday where an incident occured by the Mark Webber [2] Box - A tire came off and rolled into the path of a unaware cameraman, injuring him and sending him to hospital for rehabilitation 

On Sat Night,During the Last Lap of the Coke Zero 400, a 6 car incident occured by the Pit Straight

PitTalks.com reporting Debris knocked loose in the accident struck Team Logano - Penske [22] Front Tire Changer Jay Hackney , who luckily did NOT wind up severely hurt.

    Likewise, Tony Stewart has come forward, sitting seventh behind Harvick in defense of his Coke Zero 400 crown from last season.

    As our TNT colleagues point out, Kevin Harvick has opted to drop the hammer after laying back. He's up to sixth, right behind Kurt Busch.

  • LAP 113

    Points as they run: With Bowyer, Edwards laying back, Johnson would have a 70-point lead over Bowyer and plus-73 over Edwards if the race ended this way.

  • LAP 112

    Johnson has now led 46 laps tonight, the most of any driver.

  • LAP 110

  • LAP 62

    Dale Jr. now has some help on the outside from Denny Hamlin. He'll work around Kurt Busch for sixth place.

  • LAP 61

  • LAP 59

    Terry Labonte just crossed the line to complete his 59th lap. That puts him at 10,000 laps completed at Daytona in his career, the most of any driver all time.

  • LAP 58

    Points right now: With Johnson leading and Edwards back in 26th, it would be a 67-point lead in Sprint Cup standings for Five-Time if they finished this way.

  • LAP 57

    Three Chevys still setting the pace. Johnson, Kahne, McMurray sit 1-2-3.

  • LAP 56

    Top nine cars are all in the lower groove. You have to go all the way back to 10th-place Casey Mears to find a top-lane driver.

  • LAP 49

    Front six is now down on the bottom groove. Johnson, Kahne, McMurray, Keselowski, Earnhardt, Stenhouse.

  • LAP 48

    And now Jamie McMurray, a former winner at Daytona, has entered the fray for the first time tonight. He has Keselowski behind him in fourth.

    Johnson and Kahne have a new third-place competitor lined up behind them in Denny Hamlin, who has rallied all the way back from 39th.

  • LAP 44

    After the 48-5 lead pair, it's Ambrose, Bayne, Biffle, Edwards and Logano in a quintet of Fords.

  • LAP 43

    Johnson-Kahne still the leading duo up front. Kahne still seeking his first win on a restrictor-plate track.

  • LAP 42

    Drivers hanging in the back: Harvick, M. Waltrip, Bowyer, Newman ... all outside the top 30.

  • LAP 40

    Logano leads the charge on the top side, but he's sitting fifth behind the first four on the inside lane.

  • LAP 39

    Your top 10 at the line: Johnson, Kahne, Ambrose, Bayne, Logano, Kyle Busch, Edwards, Kenseth, Biffle, Montoya.

  • LAP 38

    That's six straight laps led by Johnson. Early leader Kyle Busch has slipped back to seventh place.

  • LAP 37

    Johnson and Kahne still 1-2, but the Ford of Marcos Ambrose has emerged in third behind the two Chevrolets.

  • LAP 35

    At the stripe, Junior gets shuffled back out of line. He'll drop back to about 20th by the time he can file back into the pack.

  • LAP 34

    Johnson and Kahne pull Logano with them to third place. Behind them is Dale Earnhardt Jr. also working the low side of the track.

  • LAP 33

    Jimmie Johnson gets a solid run, leads at the start-finish line for the first time today.

  • LAP 32

    About as even as it gets: The Kyle Busch-Kenseth teammate pairing neck and neck with the Hendrick duo of Johnson-Kahne on the inside line.

  • LAP 31

    Side by side on the backstraight is Johnson and Kyle Busch. Chevys down low, Toyotas up high.

  • LAP 30

    Johnson sticks to the low groove plan, challenges Kyle Busch for the lead with help from teammate Kahne behind him.

  • LAP 29

    Green flag: Order on the restart is Kyle Busch, Kahne, Logano, Kenseth, Bayne, Harvick, Johnson, Earnhardt Jr.

  • LAP 28

    Former Coke Zero 400 winner David Ragan among those dipping onto pit road to top off with gas. They'll go green next time by.

  • LAP 27

    Terrible stop for Denny Hamlin, who drops all the way to 39th in the order after being blocked in by AJ Allmendinger's No. 51. Won't ruin his day since you can make up ground in a hurry at Daytona.

  • LAP 26

    Pit stops. Kyle Busch leads them in. Off pit road the order is Kyle Busch, Kahne, Logano, Kenseth, Bayne, Johnson, Dale Jr.

  • LAP 24

    Paul Menard's engine fails big-time while running third. We'll see pit stops for the first time today. Landon Cassill's No. 33 is the free pass car.

    Video Highlights
  • LAP 22

    Most of the field, including the lead pack, is working the high line. Only Jimmie Johnson, currently 12th, seems to be giving the low groove a shot.

  • LAP 21

    The Jimmie-Danica-Junior train is trying the low side, making a more interesting mix near the front. Hamlin squeezes out Danica and jumps in line.

  • LAP 20

    Jimmie Johnson has Danica Patrick lined up behind him. He's starting to move now, with teammate Dale Jr. along for the ride.

  • LAP 19

    Marcos Ambrose another big mover, jumping to ninth after starting 25th.

  • LAP 17

    Points as they run: Johnson runs 16th with Edwards 23rd. That makes the margin 45 points for the five-time champ atop the Sprint Cup standings.

  • LAP 9

    A big mover so far, Joey Logano, who started 18th and is now up to fourth. Likewise, Trevor Bayne started 20th in the Wood Brothers Ford -- he's now fifth.

  • LAP 8

    Kahne, who's been knocked out of the last two restrictor-plate races by Kyle Busch, now has Busch in his sights in second place.

  • LAP 7

    Kyle Busch content to lead. He's been in front for six of the seven laps so far.

  • LAP 3

    Kyle Busch makes the low line work, has Truex behind him as he snatches the lead.

  • LAP 2

    Kenseth leads at the line, but Kahne slingshots to the outside to the top spot. Major jumble near the front.

    Kenseth nudges ahead with a push from Kasey Kahne.

    Cars are rolling. Your starting top 10: Kyle Busch, Kenseth, Bowyer, Kahne, Truex, Menard, M.Waltrip, Johnson, Stenhouse, Biffle. They'll go green the third time by the start-finish line.

  • 7:44 P.M. ET

    The NASCAR inspectors have given the 43 cars the thumbs-up. The field will roll out shortly for pace laps.

  • 7:42 P.M. ET

    Well, then. And with that, the engines are cranked at Daytona.

Stewart involved in this racing incident in New York State- One of the biggest pileups in Dirt racing history

 

One of Smoke's fellow competitors had to go to hospital following this scary dirt track sitting duck pileup - the ones you see in Quick Races here. Gosh !

A female driver - whose dad also raced there-- 19 Year Old Alysha Ruggles was quickly transported to hospital , and is reportedly doing fine- but dealing with a back injury - a common one since Denny Hamlin needed downtime in Cup to deal with back and Jeff Gordon had his back issues

All of this , happening months after Jason Leffler was fatally injured in a dirt oval AND later this week Trucks are racing at Stewart's owned facility at Eldora

Very frightening to hear but encouraging news so far

Dirt ovals are not going away - so I wonder if the revenue and resource coming from this attention can reinforce driver and fan safety since this form of racing HAS UNIQUE Consequences and injury potentials 


For Wheldon!

these winged sprint cars need to be looked at pronto, i know there are some research going on atm, but this needs huge attention from all motorsports sanctions!  :unsure:

Yes I for one am very fascinated --- I think tomorrow night 9PM July 24 is Camping World Supertruck series Midsummer classic 

A huge first dirt track race for the Truck series starring Cup personalities

For many US neighborhoods -- the only racing they get to see in person is at the Dirt Track

A great thing for NASCAR to keep national fans busy by posting those vids on Cable and Internet And of course SRW is adding it into the games

So it should make people a little concerned -- racers innately race close quarters - the cars look NOTHING like the cars in le Mans series or in SRW

 And I'm betting investigators have something interesting to say and it'll be worth it for Administrators and fans alike to read into , say The Jason leffler investigation report. Hoping the PDF will be uploaded from that

The 2012 Talladega crash is a joke compared to this

 

 

everyone was surprisingly ok but over 30 cars in a field of 60 where koed on one turn

 

doubt that'll happen today....  :ph34r:  :ph34r:

It's one of my favourite motorsports. I've been to Daytona Speedweeks for the last 6 years.

Crazy incident of the day - Atlanta,, a so so race, a Race that dragged because of the 1 hours holding pattern of rain

But we may still set up for a good finish even though some good cars got taken out here 

Damn that Jeff Gordon has horrendous fortune - he keeps winding up in accidents where the car smacks a Non-Safer foam enforced wall

Another insane accident later,and we have a winner . And some spent Goodyear tires

WTG Hendrick [48] team and Jimmie Johnson

Used to love NASCAR. Not a huge now though.

After the 2013 Chase incident with Jeff Gordon being the 13th Chase driver and now with the new Chase format, it just seems stupid.

 

Respect the drivers, just don't like the sport.

I love Nascar, but i think it would be better if they just raced actual stock cars with minimal modifications (safety etc) like they used to, that would be so much better.

Nascar at MidOhio had wipers, xfinity I think, but it didn't rain. They don't do it on ovals for good reason.
