The 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season starts tomorrow with the great American Race. The Daytona 500. Live at 1:30 on Fox. Last year we saw a great Daytona 500 under the lights on Monday for the first time ever in NASCAR history. It was a wild race. so wild that part of the track caught on fire due to a gas spill from the safety trucks. Matt Kenseth survived the crazy wild race and won. This year there is a lot to talk about with Danica Patrick on pole and starting in 1st for this great race. She became the first women ever to win the pole position for any race in the Sprint Cup Series. Some people have predicted that Danica will win the Daytona 500. I think not though and here is why. First off, she does not have that much NASCAR experience. Yes she did a full Nationwide Series season last year but now you are in the big boys league. The competition is very tough. Plus Danica did not do well in the Budweiser Duels last Thursday to prove she can do well on Sunday and does not do well in Pack Racing where all 40+ Cars are close together. I think she will at least finish this race but will not have a great finish. The real winner of this race will be Dale Earnhardt Jr. Yes he is starting 19th but this is Daytona and anything can happen to win this race. And I mean anything. He will win this race for his great father, Dale Earnhardt Sr. Enjoy the great Daytona 500 everybody.
