    Yeah, Danica is aging into a stunningly beautiful woman. I hope she has better luck on the track.

    I see that the NASCAR Camping World Truck series has added a race at Eldora Speedway for 2013. It will be run on Wednesday night during Indy NASCAR week.

    Hmmmmmm, 1/2 mile high banked clay oval. Ought to be fun.


    Thoughts?

    It will probably be pretty boring. They will prep the track to be dry and slick, and maybe, MAYBE, it will get a blue groove and produce some racing, but I doubt it. And if they step out of that undoubtedly narrow groove it's going to be an express ride into the wall.

    Youtube ARCA Springfield Mile and you'll get an idea of what's in store.

    Comparing the flat 1 mile oval at Springfield to the high banked 1/2 mile at Eldora is like that apples and oranges thing. Springfield is designed as a horse track, Eldora as a car track.

    Yeah, I know they are different animals. I still think the body guys are going to be very busy.

    The reason Tony Stewart won't run indy is because he can't fit into the car.

    So, after nearly two years away due to rotten races and general hokiness, I'm watching the Sprint Unlimited race in Daytona tonight.

    The Good:

    The new car looks great. Hopefully it'll race that way, too.

    Brad Keselowski is good on TV, but they should let him do shots during the commercial breaks.

    The Bad:

    The race format is lame and contrived. Choose Miss Sprint Cup's firesuit? WTF?

    Ol' DW makes my brain sad.


    I'll be interested to see how the 500 goes next Sunday.
