I know a number of us like the night races.. I just wish I had the stamina to see through to th end many times.

Daytona, at night under the lights, is just a special, enjoyable night for me.  Yeah.. the racing the last few years has just been plain WEIRD.   For a few years we had nothing but a single file all drawn out until the last 20 laps as everyone was afraid of the "Big One" and it was boring as could be.  Now we got the two-car hookups that no one can tell who the heck is actually good or bad, but we do know that sooner or later, somebody is going to push their dancing partner on the wrong side of the back panel and they go spinning.

Still, for me, an enjoyable evening.  I hope. 

 yes, I know. not much here that is to inciteful or anything.

 I could close with ABK or ABD, but I won't

I like the night races best during football season. First, I usually forget it's on Saturday night until the last minute or after the race has started. And it give me a 3 to 4 hour hole in my Sunday! LOL I'm getting too old and it's too hot to be outdoors on Sundays! LOL

There's nothing like being at the track for a night race. When I go to Richmond for the Sept. race, the lights reflecting of the cars is great. It has day races beaten by a mile.

gotta agree.. something special about richmond under the lights.

Kinda miss whatever the old sealer they put on that track was that created the unusual yellow smoke on the burnouts.

A win for Smoke on Saturday night would be extremely significant to this Chase hopes, correct?

June 30, 2011  08:47 AM ET

Good Morning to all, hope this finds everyone well.
Night races ANYTIME,agree with Pondscums comments, and everyone else's

I like the night races also......Daytona is my favorite track........but I like variety....so I am glad that there are some night races, but happy that not all of them are.
I would love to see Jr nail this one with JJ pushing him across the finish line....JJ owes him one LOL

June 30, 2011  09:26 AM ET

Morning all; I don't think J.J. is the least bit concerned with anyone but himself.

Like I told everyone after 'Dega, JJ was just saying Jr was the better pusher so he had the chance to win, and will probably be saying the same thing Saturday night.

Trevor Bayne drives for Roush in Nationwide and Roush affiliated Wood Brothers in Cup. When asked about Edwards possibly jumping ship to another team he said, " I don't know what he's going to do, I love him as a teammate, I want him to stay,on the other hand if he leaves, it's an open seat. I wonder what Trevor is really hoping for in this deal.?

What about David Ragan? Isn't his contract up this year too? While he has had a surge in his career recently, if he looses UPS as a sponsor Bayne would probably be a better pick for the seat to draw in sponsors for both the 6 AND 17, and possibly the 99 if Alfec leaves.

Sounds like a bit too much credit for Bayne. I can't see him having that much drawing power just yet. I do think the Cat in the hat will land on all fours when this is done and over with.

True, but look at how high Daytona 500 Winner Derrick Cope's career has soared after his win...
