    The twin 125s won't be as competitive either, since 35 teams are assured berths, leaving 8 positions open. I wish they'd make an exception for Daytona and make everybody earn their spot.

    Did they say that over the air?

    He is driving like a maniac. Almost has caused 4-5 wrecks.

    Who won the race?

    People who call in and ask about races generally say "who beat the race?"

    That is a huge story in the town where you (and others) have expressed a desire to work. He was the cover boy in their preview section today (although that story is not online for some reason).

    so because you disagree with the use of the word ``shocked'' it makes the story horrific?

    No, it isn't a bad thing.
    It's Erwin.
    A different Mike Harris, though they are old friends.   The other Harris remains at AP as far as I know.

    I argue that is your opinion based on your knowledge of Hamlin.
    But I ask any other readers of this thread if they were surprised, shocked, or any other startling reaction to Hamlin's win. I doubt many causual fans had even heard of Denny Hamlin before today.
    Then, I will use this quote from Hamlin himself to support my theory.

    "I did not in a million years expect to be here. I would have bet no money on myself to win this race," Hamlin said.

    Mike Harris must be a popular name for sports journalists. I think there is a guy at the Tampa Tribune by that name as well.
