Daytona 500 – Gentlemen Start Your Engines!
Today we turn our attention to the 53rd annual running of the Daytona 500. This promises to be an excellent race. Like any big event, the Daytona 500 is filled with stories of tragedies and triumphs. One tragedy we recall is Dale Earnhardt. It is hard to believe it is 10 years already since he died. One of the triumphs is his son, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Who will win? Speed and sound strategy will decide the winner. Getting in the right position at the right time is key.
If you like speed this is your weekend to get your fill. The stories of Brian Keselowski, Brian Vickers, and Kurt Busch are also worth mentioning. Of course there is Dale Earnhardt Jr, Jeff Gordon, Jeff Burton, Jimmy Johnson and Tony Stewart. These are just the usual suspects. There could also be a few names who have been traveling under the radar. All in all today’s Daytona 500 is going to be a great race.
Now remember, unless you are on the track speed is not fun. Enjoy the day of sports. There is also the NBA All Star 2011 game on ESPN.
