NASCAR fans

Are there any NASCAR fans out there? I like the short track racing better than the super speedway tracks but Daytona marks the start of the season. Who's you favorite driver? I'm good as long as a Ford wins. 😁

i don't understand why Daytona is the Super Bowl when it's the first race. that's the opposite of the Super Bowl.

Before Speed Weeks revs up, teams have already spent a month testing and tuning their cars, an indication of how much emphasis is placed on the Daytona 500. It's NASCAR's Super Bowl. But whereas the Super Bowl ends the season in the NFL, the Daytona 500 starts it in NASCAR. Why? Because NASCAR thinks it produces maximum drama.

Sound backwards? It is.

my wife worked for Lowes for a few years when Johnson was the champion. it was a big deal for the employees. Got to see his car at the store.

not really into it, put will have it on muted if im not doing anything else.

thought about going to Watkins Glenn to see a race in person. Its very expensive....

I like to go to races but do not really enjoy watching on TV. I wish they would add more technology for viewing experiences. More drones, more communication and mics inside of the cars to listen to the drivers, etc...

interviews with the drivers while they're racing, have drivers respond to fans' tweets and Q&A during race, camera shots of their families when they get in a crash, have drivers do their own pit stops, at the 50 lap mark the last car who isn't DNF gets to trade places with the 10th place car, introduce stars and turtle shells a la Mario Kart
