Seriously. I'm not a huge racing fan, but really, A huge crash on lap 2, then Montoya crashes into a jet truck setting off a fire, Brad K. getting over a 100,000 twitter followers during the red flag, and 100 miles (40 laps) left to race. Might be all left turns but nevertheless, should be exciting.

Is that like natural selection in sports form?

Are they still washing the track or are they racing again?

I don't know how they do it, but NASCAR somehow managed to make even that boring.

I wonder how the truck driver is. Since they didn't show him being helped, or if he is being helped at all.

lol "It was a Juan in a million chance of hitting the jet dryer."

They said both the truck driver and Montoya are fine. They're supposed to restart in the next 10 mins.

Nascar has to be, hands down, THE most boring "sport" ever conceived.

My father watches it all the time, thus I'm often "forced" to watch it and I'm convinced they could make just about anything boring.

Not to mention the guys doing the commentary are always full of filler talk. They have like a few minutes of material and they somehow make it last for hours.

sigh

I liked how they had the Tide containers in clear view at one point. Made me laugh.

Anything with an 8ft fireball is exciting. Now it's a 40 lap shootout.

Daytona on fire!

Meh. That's usually the most exciting type of thing that happens on Nascar anyways.

It's all perspective. Daytona's track is huge, 2.5 miles long, and you are viewing it from some distance so it seems slower.
