The Indianapolis 500 is certainly internationally regarded as the most important race on American soil. Many Americans, however, think otherwise. For them, the Daytona 500 is above all. It’s the race that kicks off the NASCAR season. This time on Valentine’s Day.
Anyone who enjoys top racing cannot ignore NASCAR, especially on super speedways. The so-called “ restriction plate ” races where the field across the wake is so close throughout the race that it usually guarantees a huge mess.
Plus, they usually register the hardest hits for the last lap. Ryan Newman had to be rushed to hospital last year when his car was thrown in the doors. The fact that he was not seriously injured proved once again the strength of these cars.
This year Alex Bowman and William Byron have two relatively inexperienced drivers in the front row. It hardly says anything, but they may offer a little surprise this year. You can follow the race live on Ziggo Sport Racing from 8:30 p.m.
