Dale Earnhardt Jr is Sprint Car favorite driver. His fans called "Jr Nation" roar whenever he gets into the lead. He is also one of Hendricks Motorsports quartet of drivers. The first of the green, white, checker he crashed into the wall which made him finish 24th. The other three drivers crashed on lap 29. The old man of the group, Mark Martin car number 5 finished the highest at tenth place.
Most folks are asking today,"Who is Trevor Bayne?" He has only ran two Sprint car races and this was his first Daytona 500. Yesterday he became the youngest driver(turning age 20 the day before, Saturday 2-19) to win the Super Bowl of racing. He provided the Wood Brothers their fifth Daytona 500 win. However, the last win was in 1976 with David Pearson driving the 21 car and he is being inducted into the racing hall of fame this year. The number 21 car was painted just like the one that ran in 1976.
The kitty justice is that Tennesseans have another home grown racer (Knoxville, TN.) to cheer.
PS Brian Keselowski's car 92 had a small black line on it saying " " which is a big dispute between our Mayor and the people of Tennessee. I think our Mayor Karl Dean has a case of the MEASLES.

Is that a joke, he's got a case of measles? Or does this mean something else? You mean he's that young to have a case of measles?

Young ones have all the problems. I think it could be funny.

When someone think only of themselves and not others we say they have a case of the Measles. So the Mayor of Nashville thinks more about what he wants than what the people want. Peace

Young drivers have No fear and that is what makes them good. Peace

Thanks. We went from 7 degrees to 65 on a Sunday a couple of weekends ago and I have had spring fever ever since it warmed up. Peace
