I have to say Dillon is channelin' a little of Dale Sr who could be quite ruthless and uncompromising in his time.

Dillon, however, who makes the point that he says his prayers every night and is a lovely innocent little flower, is coming out with a shtick that's a bit of obnoxious for my liking.

Probably the one for William Byron in the #24 spinning on his own coming out of turn 4. I think he cut a tire due to earlier damage to the car.

Thanks, Rustyfan. Was any other car involved or did he hit the wall or stop on track? Or was it just Nascar's way of closing the field up at the expense of a deserving leader, Ryan Blaney?

I remember seeing a shot of tire bits on the track. I believe it was that incident.

Are these cars now running titanium skid blocks?

He blew a tire and spun on his own. Not sure how much debris was put down but he stopped at the entrance to pit road. Since it took a few moments for him to get going I don't have a problem with the call by NASCAR - better to be safe than sorry; had someone else spun or gotten punted off onto pit road (like Kahne earlier in the race) with Byron sitting there we could've had a nasty incident.

Video of Byron's spin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szxjINPCZNo

Thanks for the YouTube link. Not sure the Byron car was actually on pit road but for sure Nascar wasn't going to miss the opportunity to throw a caution at that point.

There was something on track after Byron span. To me it looked like bits of his right rear which blew causing the spin. And it likely blew because the earlier accident that caused right side body damage wasn't fixed up too good...

Of course if NASCAR didn't have its dumb time restriction on repairing accident damage then the guys would likely have done a better job and we may not have had bodywork rubbing the tyre causing it to fail.

NASCAR really does seem to have the dumbest rule writers in motorsport right now.

Channel 95 on Freeview in UK by the way: they've got live xfinity and a Cup highlights show mid week.

Cup Daytona race was a one off live race AFAIK.

As for Dillon wrecking Amirola that stank; reminded me of Kesolowsie punting Carl Edwards at 'dega.

Carl came out on top in my books, so maybe we'll see the 10 punt Dillon when he least expects it.

I heard this on an Atlanta sports radio station today, that the ratings for the race were possibly the worst since they did flag to flag coverage in 1979.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.b967740a8914

That's very poor considering their campaign to have a "Daytona Day", which I use to host and participate in. We'd invite anyone over for a reason to have a "Sunday Funday", with people that didn't even care. Draw names from a hat, make a game out of it and drink, we had a ball. Now, no one knows it's on.

Very sad.

Yeah, that was the straw for me, not that I was already over it. Just a very unlikable chap, imho. Then again, it works, b/c I never liked Dale Sr.

I guess I could have lifted and given it to him. I guess that was my other option, give up a Daytona 500 ring that I'm wearing

I don't care. I've got the #3 back in victory lane at Daytona
Now that's an Intimidator.

Reminder, due to the threat of rain in the Atlanta Area today, the start of the Cup race has been moved up one hour, to 1:16 pm, Eastern Standard Time. Just thought Y'all would want to know.

Don't think that's gonna help, how many years in a row has the spring race been a rainy day? Feels like it's always been a rainy day

Not sure when a race at AMS was "moved up" to 1........

They may be able to get this in today but it will be a night race.
