The 50th running of the Great Race is today on FOX Sports at 2 pm.
I hope all enjoy the race and hope that your driver does well, but if your driver isnt Dale Jr. then I hope your racer atleast gets around 2nd or so..:wink02:
I will be pulling for Jr, but I will miss the start if the race as I dont get off work til around 4:30 or so. Hope everyone has fun and I will see how everyone is doing when I get home.

I think team Hendrick will have 3 teams in the top 5 Gordon to win Jr. second Johnson 5th. And for the title Gordon 1st Jr. 3rd Johnson 6th I'm a Gordon fan and he has alot to prove after his collapse in the last 5 races and we all know Jimmie is a cheater.

what a race.

finally, team penske wins 1 on a restrictor plate.

ive see rusty's #2 finish 2nd a hunnerd times, it seems, and this one is by far the best runner up effort.

ryan newman has been solid all week. nice to see penske teamwork finally pay off.

other than the usual strong effort by penske, im supprised by the good results from rest of dodge. and amazed by gibbs and the toyotas.

I was so glad to see Newman leave Stewart in the dust with a couple of laps to go and go on to win the Daytona 500! :thumbsup: I missed the first 1/3 of the race, but really enjoyed the remainder. Jr. gets a Top 10 finish.

you should know the fords arent going to be that good. ford is losing too much money and cant afford to put money into the program. just look at how well the lions are doing..lol... in fact i am sure ford will be cutting more jobs soon b/c of the economy.
