    I live for this day. I am ordering in pizza, have made pasta, bread and salad. I love Mark Martin and would love to see him win this race. Like Dale Jr., too. It will be a great race no matter who wins.

    I'll be watching and cheering for Jr. The Nationwide race yesterday was more exciting than I expected (great finish!), and I hope today's race is the same.

    That finish was amazing-- Tony takes it by 7 one thousands of a sec. I hope today is just as exciting!!

    Absolutely! Here's to a great race! We have no favourites at our house. We just like to see a good race with no one hurt. Well maybe a little good luck for Martin, or Jr or Stewart or .... Nah I just wanna see a great race. We started working on our friend and his 16 yr old daughter's cars last week.

    Where else would you be today?!? lol I already have the pre race show on!!!! GO KEVIN!!!!!! but it might be nice for Jr because of his dad. I think it is going to be a great race especially with the way they were drafting in the Bud shootout!!! It could go to anyone!!!! I love this race! or any other!!!

    Did you just hear the announcement that Daytona will be one week later next year? They are taking away the off week in March to keep the momentum going in the start of the season!! Good to get rid of the off week but that just means I have to wait a little longer to get it started!!!

    GO KEVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My uncle and my dad were both racers, my uncle was killed at our local track back in '59 and Johnny Benson is from my home town and races here a few times each year. Kyle Busch also comes to town several times a year.
    Racers have hearts of gold, they do so much charity work, it is wonderful. I have sent several quilts to the Victory Junction Gang Camp that the Petty's operate.
    I sent a pic of my grand daughter dressed in a #20 suit (when Tony was #20) to Tony and he signed it and sent it back.

    Must have missed the part of delaying the season by one week, OMGosh it has been 91 days since the last race and now they want me to wait 98 days next year. That will be torture.

    Does anyone go to the Prelude to the Dream all-star dirt Late Model race at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio? It is going to be June 8th this year.

    Watching right now....or getting back to it after I get off of this PC.
    It was nice because hubby watched while I quilted.
    Just noticed the snow coming down right after most of it melted.
