Wow, what a great race today!! Perfect way to start off the new season, just shows we have alot to look forward to in the '05 NASCAR season!!


Jeff Gordon pulled out the victory in what was an intense finish with alot of lead changes and alot of contact.





It was really nice to see two RACING LEGENDS, Rusty Wallace and Mark Martin avoid all the wrecks and place well in what was both of their last Daytona 500.







Jeff Gordon grabbed the lead from Dale Earnhardt Jr ., then held off Kurt Busch and Earnhardt in extra laps to win his third Daytona 500 Sunday.

Earnhardt, the defending champiion, came from as far back as 30th to grab a late lead, only to watch four-time series champion Gordon pass him seconds before a caution flag waved with three laps to go.

The race went three laps beyond the scheduled 200-lap distance, with Gordon hanging on over two final laps of green-flag racing to beat Busch by two car-lengths

Sounds like it was a great second half of the race. Could this be Gordons year? He had alot of trouble at the start of last season with his car, but he has got off to a great start..

Gordon did look good, but Kurt Busch, Dale Jr, Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, etc were all right there when Gordon won, it's going to be a very competitive season IMO. There are some really strong teams with good drivers so we're going to see some really good racing like we saw today.

how tight was the pack after 500 miles of racing?

Great shot tj! That's exactly how it ended.

As a matter of fact, that was exactly when Stewart came from up top in between Jimmie Johnson and Scotty Riggs and Stewart and Johnson traded some major paint. If you look close, Stewart is a bit sideways.
