Yeah looking forward to Daytona. I don't have a fav driver anymore they have all jumped ship to the Toyota house. Brand Loyalty isn't as important to me in Nascar, however I just can't root for a yota.

Yeah i can't wait till Daytona. Been a Nascar fan for a long time, my favorite driver is Mark Martin but since he cut down his schedule so much i've been looking to root for a new driver but i'm having a hard time deciding on who that's gonna be. Been going to Pocono for the last 6 years since i live 10 minutes from the track. Besides Pocono i've been to Daytona and Dover a few times. This year i'm going to Darlington and maybe New Hampshire. I could'nt begin to guess who's going to win the championship this year.

I can't wait for it to start. As far as drivers don't like toys!! As far as I am concerned they shouldn't be there! JMO Wish I could go see a race . I like (don't hate me ) but I like Kurt Busch.

Been a NASCAR fan for ~35 years. Been to a lot of tracks, mainly Michigan. We gave up those tickets because we got season tickets to Bristol last year. Things sure have changed in the sport but I still like it. I root for Roush Racing. I remember when Mark Martin drove the Folger's Coffee car. The first race I went to in Bristol, think it was the fall of '98, Mark won driving the Valvoline car.
The Shootout is Saturday.

I would also guess that a Hendricks driver will win the championship it will be interesting to see if Jr will do anything there he will have no excuses now he has all the resources and a good team so we will see I am going to the truck race in daytona on friday I got free tickets and I only live about 2 1/2 hrs from daytona so I figured it would be fun I have been to daytona b4 for a bush race and to a bush race in Homestead last year but have never made it to a cup race I have been talking to my father in law and might try to make a trip to Bristol this year but we will see I thought about trying to make it to Daytona 500 this year but thought about it to late its sold out

Id love to go to Bristol!!! That and Atlanta are probably my favorite tracks. I dont have one favorite driver, rather I pull for a couple. Back a couple years ago I pulled for Rusty and Mark. Anybody that argues that Mark Martin cant drive a car is a crazy. I like Edwards and Kahne, too. Team-wise I prefer Roush and probably Evernham.

The worst part of Vegas is Jimmy Johnson always wins. Im not a fan of his at all, and it gets annoying watching NASCAR wave the yellow so he can catch up and win. I, as many, cant root for Toyota. I was pretty disappointed when they let them in, but the almighty dollar speaks volumes I guess.

All-in-all, should be an interesting season-can't wait!!! Hopefully TiVO works this year and records the cup races and Busch (or whatever it is this year), instead of the truck races.

Junior, all the way! {I used to drive Chevy's.}He will be hard to beat in his new ride. For 2 years I have been waiting for someone that drives a Ford to spark my interest, so I can start rooting for them. Carl Edwards lives 90 miles south of me, but everybody I know roots for him. I will surely find one before long. I refuse to put a # 8 or 88 on my Ford truck.
