2014 Daytona 500

Post by NeverNeutral on Thu Feb 13, 2014 5:21 pm

It's nearly time for the 56th running of the Daytona 500, the beginning of the 2014 Sprint Cup season. Last year, Jimmie Johnson won his second 500 en route to sweeping the Daytona cup races and winning his 6th championship. Opening practice doesn't begin until Sunday at 12:30, but the entry list has been released. 49 cars are entered, up from 45 last year.

i love how people say it's rigged, cry me a river  Laughing. Last time i checked, 5 of the 6 fastest cars in practice were RCR/RCR equipment = truex. So stop grabbing for attention  Razz 

Good for Dilllon, though!

BIG WRECK IN PRACTICE

Kligerman gets flipped after Kenseth gets into Logano, which sends the 22 into Menard, and Kligerman got lifted by 27, and Catch fenced, Blaney also involved

77 likely not racing due to only car, 26/30 may not race depending of their back up cars, 26 is fixale but 30 is done.... That's just like 15 minutes into practice & may end the practice drafting for NASCAR

Kenseth vs Logano games has wiped out 5 more cars and have probably ended at least 2-3 teams hopes of making the 500.

As an apology, Joe Gibbs should loan the 77 and 30 a car for the 500 for Matt Kenesth's apparent stupidity in practice.  I thought he was better than that. Why the hell would you dip down into one line, then back up another like that, in practice no less?!?

I have a feeling the 77 team is one of those teams that doesn't care about the manufacturer. Razz

I don't care if it were to go into the Duels as a Foryota, I think that was a stupid move by Kenesth that just ruined one team's week, and should be repaid.

What a shame, all of those off season efforts made only to to go home before the Duels. Hopefully this won't hurt them at all in terms of sponsorship or anything like that.

And to think this is the second time in a week that Kenseth has caused a big wreck by coming across Logano to follow a teammate? It's rather strange to see Matt do something like that once, much less twice.

They only had one back-up, which was the 26 but will now become the 30. The team will repair the 26. Luckily for them, this year the Duels are at night.

Kenseth win duel 1, in a 3-wide finish with Harvick & Kahne.

Cole Whitt, and Alex Bowman, qualify for the race due to finishing in the top 15!!!  Cool

Good first duel. I don't know what they've done with the aero package, but it's a massive improvement over last year. Actually looking forward to seeing how the 500 turns out.

Don't really know if it was smart of Kenseth to do victory burnouts for a Duel win, but whatever. It'll be his own fault if the engine blows during the 500.  Laughing

The second duel ends with Jimmie running out of fuel in front of the pack and all hell breaking loose behind him. Clint Bowyer with the 10/10 flip and landing on all fours. Nothing more than a bad deal.

The races were pretty good, sucks that Kes blew a tire and sped on pit road.

Clint Bowyer decided to show why he should be in the Air Force Thunderbirds.

I think this is the first time I've seen a onboard of a blowover.

Awesome 1st Duel. Summed up everything about trying to get in the 500 and has a nice finish

2nd duel kind of paled into comparision to the first. Sombody call IOC and send Clint Bowyer a gold medal, That was gymnastics at it's finest.

Gibbs is looking strong into the 500.

Also we Bizarro Speedweeks now!

Missed out on duel 1 cause I went out with family and friends for my sister's birthday, but the finish looked awesome. Duel 2 wasn't as dicey as I expected, but it's only a duel and I enjoyed it, so I'm satisfied.

Also, seven of the eight rookies made the race and Josh Wise in the PPR car will start eleventh or ninth, depending on the lane Dillon chooses. Remember that PPR finished ninth in the 500 last year with McDowell.

Hamlin is one more win away from becoming the first driver to sweep Speedweeks.

I don't think he gets the 500 though. Whether it be a wreck or wrong place wrong time at the end i just can't see him winning it.

...and that's why I'm not too disappointed that Blaney missed the race, even though I love a lot of the backmarkers.

Duel 1 was fun to watch, even though I missed the first 20 laps due to being at work. Duel 2 made me want to call it an early night. I may as well have done that, because I'll be seeing replays of that Bowyer flip for the next decade in highlight reels. Razz

Ladies and gentlemen, the only time you'll ever hear this phrase applied to a Randy Humphrey Race team.  Razz

Duel 1 was fun to watch, even though I missed the first 20 laps due to being at work. Duel 2 made me want to call it an early night. I may as well have done that, because I'll be seeing replays of that Bowyer flip for the next decade in highlight reels. Razz

Hey at least it was a perfect landing for Bowyer. I gotta admit though, that was one of the most incredible blow overs I've ever seen.

That flip was a carbon copy of both flips from the Daytona Truck race in 2005.

Both races actually make me pretty optimistic for the 500. We'll have to see, though.

I was confused too when they first started airing last year's race...for like, 3 seconds. Granted, it was overcast last year too, but it can't be that difficult figure out the race FOX was showing was from last year, can it?
