      I'm sitting here watching the Duel races and realized we have threads for Sportscar racing, Indy, and F1 but nothing for Murrica's greatest carbureted left hand turning stadium of speed.

      Let's fix that with a (possibly?) unpopular opinion. I think the #3 should be retired, or at the very least, not run in a Black, Silver, Red livery again. I don't care who owns the car and who's nephew is driving it, it's kind of disrespectful to see it out there.




      That being said, growing up a SR and Rusty Wallace fan, I don't have any real attachment to the #2 car anymore, so I may as well cheer Austin Dillon on

      But they aren't carbed anymore.

      Edit: I do tend to agree with retiring #3, but at the same time #43 isn't retired and still being used by Bubba Wallace, so perhaps it isn't really in NASCAR's interest to retire numbers.

      What is the top series called this year anyways?

      This is the last year for this spec car, so expect some rules-stretching. Soon there will be sequential shifters, rear diffusers, and cars that resemble Australian V8 supercars.

      It's not. It's meant to be a generic front-end that doesn't upset any of the manufacturers since quite a few drivers have tested it already. It will look more corporate once the core of the chassis/car is developed.

      Glad to see we finally made it to Daytona 500 Sunday once again. Another sign that Spring is getting closer!

      Sentimental favorite: Wouldn't mind if Jimmie Johnson rode out into the sunset with a Daytona 500 win.

      Not a fan of his particularly, but he's a hellofadriver: Kyle Busch. Probably the best driver in NASCAR today. But don't think he's ever won the Daytona 500, has he? So I am kinda thinking this might be his year to do it.

      Looking forward to the racing today.

      Yea buddy! Love the spectacle of Daytona and I've watched every race in the lower series so far. Wonder how much riding around there will be today, but lets go Kyle!

      This race is a snooze fest compared to 20 years ago.

      I tried to watch (which I have not done in many years) but have better things to do.

      POTUS parade lap, give me a break.

      It really doesn't matter since it's broken up into segments.

      It needs passes in the grass and a few fist fights.

      And many wrecks.

      Yeah, it seemed more like a campaign stop for MAGA.

      It's been like that for a year now. Hopefully they get the race in tomorrow.
