    Yesterday was the first day of NASCAR Preseason Thunder, which saw cars going up to 210mph in draft. The fastest that is has ever been in a long long time.
    Reason for this? Increase of hp (27hp) due to changes in the carburetor to let more air in. And if not mistaken a lower rear wing.
    Day 2 saw less speed, but still 200+.
    I guess Daytona will be something else to see in February ;)

    If they show it in Spain, indeed, but we had it 2 years ago in Teledeporte and then they decided to stop showing it for an unknown reason...

    They don't show NASCAR in The Netherlands either :(
    I hope there will be a good stream available.

    The stated combination above, along with the body shape of the current cars also helps - last year they were peaking at 200 before some tweaks to the plate brought them down.. this year there has been a change to the intake, moving it up higher on the bumper as well. The races next month will be interesting to see if the 2 car draft used last year is back or gone (which is what they were trying for).
    Being a die-hard NASCAR fan (and F1 fan as well) this time of year always gets me amped up for the coming season.. so much testing, so many new car/driver combos to be proven.. looks like a great year is building!

    I hope
    1: Jeff Gordon
    2: AJ Allmendinger
    3: Kasey Khane
    I know that that are nearly no chances that will happen

    Allmendinger wins a race.

    Cousin Carl (Edwards) wins his first (and only) Cup.

    Mostly usual suspects in the chase (Steward, Gordon, Johnson, Edwards, Biffle, Schrub etc.)
    Dark horses may include:
    JPM
    Marcos Ambrose
    Kasey Kahne (now with Hendrick)
    Allmendinger (now with Penske)

    placed a 20SEK bet on Kenseth, Dale Jr. or Stewart to win the Daytona 500, won 340SEK :)
    will do the same with Harvick, Gordon and Hamlin for Phoenix.

    Simple Answer is Yes, this is the internet, anything is possible believe me, Nasa got Hacked, 1 person nicked over 500 Thousand Credentials of people, and much more, you just have to look in the right place, i'll give you a hint: Google.
