Daytona

Welcome to Twitter, Dale Jr! And oh yes! Congratulations on winning the Daytona 500! Over 10 hours from when you started. A severe thunderstorm warning turned into a tornado warning. A picture even surfaced and it looked like a tornado off in the distance. But the story of the day…the man in victory lane.

This was a great way to start the NASCAR Sprint Cup season. And that’s not even from a member of Jr. Nation!

Harvick is good to the last drop

As Harvick was running out of fuel with 40 laps to go, his goal was to stay on the lead lap. Not only did he stay on the lead lap, ironically, he pulled ahead of Carl Edwards, who himself was running out of fuel. That was what Harvick needed to win in the desert. For more of the stories from Phoenix, go to Speedway Digest.

A dominating win in the desert

While this isn’t Vegas, you can still gamble in Arizona. But I wouldn’t bet against Kyle Busch starting from the pole, especially at Phoenix. Kyle Busch won by more than four seconds, ahead of Justin Allgaier. For more information on the race and the Nationwide Series championship, go to Speedway Digest.

Youth owns the day

Discovered at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL during their annual Snowball Derby by Kyle Busch, Erik Jones was fast-tracked to the Camping World Truck Series. In his first season, he became the youngest winner in Series history, eclipsing Chase Elliott’s record set earlier this year. For more details, go to Speedway Digest.
