    Where can I find the best-written story on the Daytona 500? I want to read it and share it with my father.

    Tip your cap and take a victory lap. We'll find something else for Brad Keselowski to hit while you're out there ...

    5. Seven months from now, try to wonder how in the hell 23rd-in-the-points-standings Michael McDowell is qualified for the playoffs.

    At least now McDowell will be known for something better than this:

    Were you being serious about that? Does the Daytona 500 champion automatically qualify for the playoffs?

    Everyone who wins a race in the Cup Series qualifies for the playoffs.

    Michael Waltrip in the playoffs 20 years ago would’ve been a hoot!

    Isn’t the whole benefit of running on a road course that you can have localized yellows and not have to bring out the pace car (again)?

    I was listening to tonight’s trucks race and not watching it so I could be wrong, but it seemed like half those cautions could’ve been cut.

    I don't know that NASCAR has ever done localized cautions.
    Heck, they throw cautions for hotdog wrappers on the back stretch to bunch the field.
