PostSubject: Race #1: 2013 Daytona 500   Fri Feb 08, 2013 10:46 pm



Coming In: With the 2010 Daytona 500 race still looming in people's minds, mostly the 32 car wreck on the 2nd lap that knocked out over half of the cars involved, nobody was sure what to expect after nearly 3 years of no racing in the league. Lorii Johnson and Chris Saunders were red hot coming off of the exhibition races with Rose LaTereza as the top driver, according to statistics. 3 Time 500 winner, Nick Miller, was thought to be a major threat to win this year's race. Rose announced in the opening driver meeting that she and her mate (former driver of the #21) Quetzal were going to win the 2013 Daytona 500.

The Good: 32 of the 33 cars wound up finishing the race. Albert Lewis won his first race since 2006.

The Bad: Al-Zahir Muhammud, the 2-time Points Champ, ran out of gas on lap 143 and lost 5 laps while his car was towed to the pits. Cody Landon, the 2010 Points Champ, ran out of gas on lap 152 and also lost 5 laps to the leader.

The Ugly: Mike Boone and Mileena Jackson ran into the back of two cars on an early yellow flag, damaging their cars badly. They finished 10 laps down. Nick Miller lost a cylinder in his engine on lap 3 and wound up being the only car unable to finish the race, only completing 26 laps before calling it quits.

Race Significance: Rose LaTereza went from 32nd to 1st in the first 8 laps of the race and broke her own record that she set in 2010 for the oldest driver to lead a lap in a race at the age of 75. Later on she went from 12th to 2nd in the final 4 laps of the race, finishing just one tenth of a second behind the leader Albert Lewis. 26 drivers led at least one lap in the race, the lead changing hands 79 times.

Well done, sir. I'm assuming you'll squeeze pictures in from the race as well?

Nicely done, Lance. If needed, I can help tackle some of the races for you since I'm only driving part time.
