One thought on “Daytona Thoughts: A Tame but Emotional 500”

  1. Dude,
    I could not have said it better myself. I still think Dale Jr. a/k/a Lightning McQueen (no tires?!) looked strong at the end. I couldn’t believe he hung with Stewart and Kyle Busch after they pitted and he did not. Dale Jr. may have better equipment but he’s got the same old crew chief. I can go along with the first decision not to pit but the second decision was unexcusable. At least it gave Dale Jr. a scapegoat. He wasn’t going to win anyway without any help for his Hendrick teammates.
    Kyle Busch had the car to beat though. That guy was unbelievable flying up through the middle after getting shuffled back. The reality is Stewart thought Kyle Busch was the man to beat so the teamwork of Newman and Kurt Busch gave Newman the victory. I know Kurt Busch has been heavily criticized in the past but he was a team player last night.
