Really, no thread on this yet?
Bayne is the youngest driver ever to win this race, and the only racer to win his first Daytona 500 since the first Daytona 500. Pretty impressive, if you ask me.
I was thrilled for the kid, and even more thrilled that Tony Stewart once again failed to gain this coveted prize. Heh heh!
But overall, my observation is that these new 2-car drafts made for an exciting finish to a much less than exciting race. There were so many lead changes that the lead hardly meant anything. Too many drivers taken out at random by other guys wrecking. A battle of attrition is not necessarily fun to watch.
Is Daytona becoming just a lottery like Talladega?
