We’re at Daytona for the biggest race of the year: the Daytona 500. Can’t believe the seasons finally here. We have a couple new teams such as Spire Motorsports, the #36 team (formerly the #23 car), and the #71 team owner by Tommy Baldwin’s longtime team.
Tomorrow is the last start for my childhood hero Jamie McMurray. He was the driver that got me hooked on motor-racing. It’s a shame to see him retire but, I guess it’s nice to see him run a final Daytona race and have a chance at being a 2-time Daytona winner. I will never forget my most precious memory of 2015 when I got to meet him at PIR which you can see below. Now that he’s retired I guess my new idol will be Kyle Larson due to him being so nice last year.
There are a number of potential drivers who could win. There could be a first time winner in Brendan Gaughan who drives for Beard Racing and in fact, almost won at Talladega in the Cup car about 15 years ago. And there could be other first time winners for guys like Matt Tifft, who drives the car that was once BK Racing, now owned by Front Row; and Ryan Preece who is in his first year with JTG Daugherty Racing.
There could also be first-time Daytona 500 winners such as Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Austin Dillon, Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson and several others. Or even multiple-500 winners in Joey Logano, Jimmie Johnson, Jamie McMurray, and a few other guys.
I won’t be attending ISM in a few weeks because I decided to shoot for a Vegas race in September or an autumn ISM race. There’s no question in my mind I will meet more drivers soon. God has blessed me with so many good memories. I love my picture with Kyle Larson so much, I sometimes get teary-eyed just thinking about it.
Who will win the Super Bowl of NASCAR? We’ll find out. May the best driver win. #motorsports #motorsport #racing #f #cars #car #race #motor #r #bmw #motorcycle #formula #m #ferrari #racecar #speed #motorbike #supercar #moto #photography #motorcycles #s #porsche #ride #automotive #wheels #bhfyp
