    Tony Stewart. Not sure who "officially" finished second, because there was a big wreck at the finish line and about 15 cars got dumped all over the infield grass. Some crossed the finish line, some didn't. Pretty wild.

    Um, this isn't the Podunk Press having to allocate newshole with a medicine dropper. It's the AP, which does present entertainment/lifestyle news at lest check. I can promise you they still beat every other Daytona angle to death this week.

    Here's something I can't seem to find anywhere: What time is the race Sunday?

    The Daytona 500 is scheduled to go green at the oddball time of 2:30 p.m., forced by NBC's strange obsession with cross country skiing, curling, freestyle skiing and ice dancing.

    And also the USA-Sweden men's hockey game, which is at least worthy of attention. The others, not so much.

    Passing mention in a notebook or a personality feature, sure.

    Whole f'in' story in the sports section, or on the AP sports wire? Oh, hell no.

    Let's say you're Jeff Green. And there are hundreds of thousands of dollars in your operation. You have a corporation's worth of people working on your car. You qualify. And the first lap of the Daytona 500, your left tire comes off.

    I've got to think selling insurance has to be looking pretty good to him at that moment.

    Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart bump into the wall, go into the pits for a significant amount of time, yet still bounce back into the heat of things with very little effort.

    If that happens to one of the lesser known drivers, they're running between 30th and 35th the rest of the race.

    How come so many drivers have changed car numbers - is it a marketing gimic to sell more gear like Michael Jordan did when he changed numbers?

    No, Boom, it's simply the start of a new season (BTW, "silly season" is to NASCAR, what "hot stove" is to MLB). Drivers, car numbers and sponsors for a number of teams change in the offseason and Daytona is the first time you see them in new colors/numbers/logos.
