This Sunday is the Daytona 500, and the kickoff to the 2015 NASCAR season.
The biggest story line this year will be the final year of Jeff Gordon’s Championship Career, and he looks to make it a great season, grabbing pole position for this weekend.
As I’ve expressed here before, I am a Tony Stewart fan, and have been for years, and this by default has me rooting for Stewart-Haas racing as a whole. And what a cast of characters we have this year…The Owner, The Crazy Ninja Ex, The Women, and The Reigning Champion.
This team has won 2 of the last 4 championships, which is kind of unheard of from a small organization that they’ve built…and with Harvick racing as he was last year, and Stewart seeking his first win in over a year, look for them to repeat, unless JG24 has something to say about it.
And lastly, ESPN is finally out of the running in airing races. I never cared for their coverage anyways (and that’s not just for NASCAR), but this year will be all about Fox Sports for the first half of the season, and NBC Sports for the second half and the Playoffs.
After watching the Sprint Unlimited last weekend, on Fox Sports, I like what they’ve done with the layout of information presented to the viewers, and hopefully it’ll be a good season 🙂
