Wednesday’s Practice Review

17 02 2011

NASCAR  Speedweeks got back underway on Wednesday with all 3 series Cup, Nationwide and trucks practicing! Practice was delayed untill 2pm thanks to unexpected rain showers that moved though during morning hours!

Before Cup practice even got started NASCAR made a restrictor plate change to help slow down the carsdown some and it helped alittle they went from 205 mph down to 200 mph witch is cool with me! I told ya in my Shootout review that i bet they’ll make a change to slow the cars down!!

During the 1st practice a bunch of cars checked up for a slower car causing Martin Truex to get into Dale Jr witch caused Dale Jr to spin and hit the wall. Dale Jr was fine but his car wasnt it had heavey damage causing them to bring out a backup car. Dale Jr had the Pole locked for the Daytona 500 but because he will have a backup he will start the Daytona 500 in the rear and will also start today’s Gatorade Duel race in the rear.

Im getting sick and tired of hearing everyone saying now rigged and fixed Nascar is just because Jr got the Pole for the 500! The rules are the same for every driver!! It is what it is!! Even Dale Jr and some of the others are getting sick and tired of it!!

Kevin Harvick played it smart in practice with only running 10 laps in the 1st practice and sitting out the 2nd!!

During the 1st Nationwide practice they were hitting speeds over 200mph! Thats faster the Cup cars were going so NASCAR said cant have that so they made a plate change right away for the 2nd pratice. Not sure if that helped slow the cars down much cause they were still going 200 in 2nd pratice! I think it might been the time of day too, It was dark at 2nd practice and they’ll race Saturday durning the day. Joey Logano and Brian Scott will have to repair their cars after they crashed in 2nd practice.

Bobby Santos the 2010 Nascar Whelen Modified Champion will drive the #52 car to atemp to make the Nationwide race!! Good Luck Bobby!! Bobby drives full time in the Modified series for Mistic Missle #4 car!!

The Truck series practiced for 2 hours last nite. Only trouble they had was Kyle Busch getting into the back of his own driver Aric Almirola sending him into the wall. There were no Nascar changes or anything.

Besides all the action at Daytona Speedway there is also lots of short track action at New Smyrna Speedway just south of Daytona! Short track drivers from all over the Country and Canada Come to Speedweek at this wild short track! This is their World Series event! Whoever racks up the most points in their class wins the Championship!  You can listen to these races live on

Wednesday nite (Night6) the Modifieds had their annual John Blewett Memorial 50 lap race! Earl Paules won the race as Chuck Hossfeld was 2nd and Ted Christopher finished 3rd! Jason Myers finished 5th as his brother Burt Myers finished 8th!

The best news of the day was Rebecca Kasten winning the Super Late Model race! She had 3 2nd place finishes in a row this week! It so awesome for Recbecca winning because that win was for her twin sister that she lost on Jan. 1st She changed her car number to 12 in honor of her sister Alli! CONGRATS BECCA!!

Today at 2pm est on Speedtv is the Gatorade Duels! Prerace is at 1pm st! i’ll do my race revire sometime after the race!

Have fun and enjoy the races!!
