So yesterday was the first nascar race I've watched in a while. A long while. Back in the early-mid 00's I was right into it. Dale Jr was my guy. But around 05-06 I drifted away from it (those seem to be very pivotal years in my life lol).
I really only watched because of DJ Kennington made it I to the friggin Daytona 500! A guy from my small town ontario made it to the biggest race in the world. First canadian to make it there in 29 years!
So needless to say, I was really pulling for him to have the underdog win. I was still hoping one of the bigger names would win, buy DJ above all.
Unfortunately he was taken out in the 127 lap when he had a slight collision with jimmy Johnson after Johnson got turned around and created a 16 car pile up. Kennington just couldn't quite make it past him on the bottom of the track and hit just enough to have him done for the day.
Glad kurt busch got the win though. I was really hoping chase elliot would come away with the win at the end there when he was leading for a good while but then he ran out of fuel with only a lap to go.
All in all it was an exciting race to watch (after it was half over lol) and now I have a feeling I'll be keeping an eye on nascar again for a while.
Most people see it as boring. Which I get. It can be rather boring at times. But man are they flying around the track. 195 mph...like holy shit I'd love to do that for a living.
So yeah any other fans on here? And who are you favourite drivers, past or present?
