Daytona 500 Weekend Coverage

Pull those belts tight one more time boys and Boogity, Boogity, Boogity lets go racin!!! NASCAR returns to Daytona Beach, Fla. for the 50th running of The Great American Race.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is showing his move to Hendrick Motorsports may have been the right one. Jr. is following in his fathers footsteps as he has dominated Daytona Speedweek winning the Budweiser Shootout, the Gatorade 125 and finishing third in the Nationwide race yesterday. Dale Earnhardt Sr. is the winningest driver at the International Speedway.

This should be a very exciting race today. I look for a big day from Hendrick Motorsports today and the winner could be anyone of them. Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. could all finish in the top ten.

Also look out for Denny Hamlin. He should have a good race as well and never count out Michael Waltrip at Daytona.

A great story book finish would be for Dale Jarrett to win his last race here, and I would love to see it. I don't think it will happen.
This one is going to come down to the two best restrictor plate drivers out there. Smoke or Dale Jr. will battle for the win.
