With all of the excitement that one race has brought, you have to be excited about the upcoming season, well at least I am. Be sure to check out the next race, the Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Phoenix on Sunday, March 4th on FOX at 2:30pm ET as the drivers rev up their engines for another exciting day at NASCAR. Your J.G.F.

Sunday’s Daytona 500 was supposed to kick-off what some would call the Super Bowl of the NASCAR, but with the soggy weather it was anything but. Sunday’s race will go down in history as the first race that has been cancelled by NASCAR because of weather. Since Sunday was a wash (literally) all of the focus moved on to Monday. Monday’s race was supposed to begin at 12 noon, but with weather still not clearing out, the race was again postponed to later that evening at 7pm. At 7:13pm we finally witnessed a green flag which not only signaled the start of the much awaited Daytona 500, but also signaled the beginning of another NASCAR season which only ended a couple of months ago with Tony Stewart receiving his third NASCAR Cup Series Championship victory. By the second lap of the race a six car accident including Danica Patrick and defending Daytona 500 winner and Jersey Girl Sports fav Trevor Bayne, put the race on pause once again. Bayne and Patrick were able to get back out there but late in the race.
