2011 Daytona 500 Race Results: 20 Year Old Rookie Trevor Bayne wins the Daytona 500

20 02 2011

20 Year Old Rookie Trevor Bayne has won the Daytona 500

Improbably, unbelievably, 20-year-old Trevor Bayne has won the Daytona 500.

A kid who just left his teen years on Saturday won the Great American Race a day later, ushering in NASCAR’s newest star. Amazingly, Bayne has no full-time ride and isn’t even running for points in the Sprint Cup Series this year.

Somehow, Bayne sent the Wood Brothers’ famous No. 21 car to Victory Lane, with a retro David Pearson paint scheme along for the ride.

Runnerup Carl Edwards’ late charge – a push from third-place David Gilliland – was barely not enough to overtake Bayne.

There was a race record for both lead changes and caution flags resulted in one of the strangest Daytona 500s in the 53-year history of the “Great American Race.”

The two-car drafts were prevalent throughout the race – as expected – and there were plenty of crashes because of it. Several star drivers were collected in early wrecks, leaving just a few solid contenders at the end.

NASCAR Daytona Opener: Kurt Busch Wins Budweiser Shootout

13 02 2011

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Call it “Dancing with the Cars.” Saturday night’s Budweiser Shootout exhibition was a 200-mph tango of two-car drafts on the newly-paved, super-fast Daytona International Speedway.

In a photo finish, Kurt Busch won a predictably wild NASCAR opener on the new $20 million racing surface, pushed to the front by defending Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray a few feet before the finish line. Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag first, but was subsequently black-flagged for dropping below the yellow line on the track trying to pass Ryan Newman at the finish line.

NASCAR ruled the finish Busch, McMurray and Newman. Five-time defending Sprint Cup Series champ Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle rounded out the top five.

“What an unbelievable experience,” Busch said.

The race had set a record for lead changes (24) with 12 laps to go — there ended up being 28. The two-car drafts were easily reaching speeds of 206 mph — nearly 15 mph faster than last year’s pole-winning speed for the Daytona 500.

Five questions for the Budweiser Shootout

12 02 2011

The waiting is over. Tonight at 8 ET on FOX, the NASCAR season kicks off with the running of the Budweiser Shootout, a non-points dash for cash that will certainly be high intensity.

So what can you expect to see? Consider this your cheat sheet for when the green flag drops this evening.

1. How fast will they go? Excitement was in the air during Friday night’s practice sessions at Daytona International Speedway as 10 drivers were able to break the 200-mph-lap barrier, led by a blistering-fast 203.087-mph lap by Joey Logano. So what will we see tonight? NASCAR officials said they would watch speeds in today’s Daytona 500 practices, so it seems unlikely they’ll change the restrictor plate size. So strap in tight and enjoy the combination of a new surface that lets drivers go three-wide (at least) and cars going over 200 mph. (Spencer: Drivers at full throttle to start year)

Dancia Patrick Crash on Lap 68 in Nationwide Series

14 02 2010

Danica Patrick not so smooth first time out

Danica Patrick’s first race on the Nationwide Series didn’t go quite as she had hoped. Just the same the 35th place finish as a rookie will give her a lot to walk away learning.

Patrick was taken out of the race in a lap 68 in a large pile-up, resulting in a “did not finish” final standing for her.

The first thing that Patrick learned was that she might be getting a lot of media attention but that does not stop her from being a part of a big one. The big one being the crash she was a part of in the Nationwide Series today in Daytona.

The second thing that she has to continue to work on is the difference between NASCAR and Indy-car language. Patrick repeatedly communicates using her Indy-car lingo. While her team can adapt and she can clarify as to how the car is performing. Still, anyone in NASCAR will tell you that communication is key between a driver and their pit crew, so Patrick will have to work on this some.

Danica Patrick NASCAR Debut at Daytona Speedway Saturday

9 02 2010

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — After a top-10 taste of stock car racing over the weekend, Danica Patrick has decided to accelerate her learning curve and will enter Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Danica Patrick makes the More to NASCAR

Patrick announced her decision Monday, two days after finishing sixth at Daytona in an 80-lap race in the ARCA Series, which is an entry-level, training series for many drivers. The Nationwide Series is NASCAR’s version of Triple-A baseball and a significant step up.

“Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process,” Patrick said, “but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do.

“The ARCA race was a blast and I’m not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.”

Auto Racing has become the fastest growing spectator sport in the United States.  NASCAR fans enjoy the ability to hear their favorite drivers and crew directly via hand held scanners.  The frequency range is between 450-460 Mhz. A few drivers have recently changed to 800-900mhz frequencies

Nascanner decided to provide frequency updates on NowPublic free.   Here are our first update.

Here is a NASCAR scanner frequency Primer from two sources.

 Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

<!– –>

Once you’ve experienced a race with a scanner, you can’t imagine watching one without the headphones on your ears.  You are able to listen to communication among the driver, his pit crew and spotter, as well as radio broadcasts and track announcements, which are usually otherwise inaudible due to the race noise.

Using a scanner helps you discover the race behind the race, hearing differing pit strategies, learning how the cars are handling and discovering who is mad at whom.  Basically, you’ll hear what these guys really want to say, but can’t in front of a television camera.

When I started scanning races, I used a cheap 200-channel scanner with a frequency range reaching 800Mhz, and two sets of inexpensive headphones with a splitter.  I bought it on sale in 1997, and the whole set-up cost me around $200. It worked, but I have since learned that there are big differences with scanners, headsets and even antenna’s. In short, you can get by with less expensive set-ups, but spending a few extra dollars will save some frustration with bleed-over and lost reception at the track.

If you don’t want to buy a scanner, you can rent them at the track. The cost to rent one for the weekend is $55-60, so you can do the math to see how quickly you can own one at those prices. Plus, I’ve seen the track-side rental places run out of scanners, so you’re definitely not guaranteed to get one.

Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

NASCAR scanner frequency information from Fact Expert

<!– –>

What would it be like to be a part of the thrill and excitement that goes on among the crew of NASCAR driver during a heated race? Those that know the NASCAR frequencies that each individual driver transmits on during the race can say that they’ve experienced it all first hand. Drivers run into all kinds of problems during races and they have a lot of triumphs too. It’s all usually captured through the transmissions they send to their crew as they tear around the track and for those in the know, they can be a part of it all as well. However it should be said that the activity of scanning frequencies can be considered illegal in some cases so it’s important to know what’s going to get you in very big trouble and what areas considered ok to an extent.

First of all, not all frequencies are the same from race to race and track to track. There are groups that keep up with NASCAR frequencies and if you’re planning on making it a part of your regular trips to the races, you may want to join one. That’s not to say that there aren’t places online that you can find these out, but it’s nice to belong to a community of fellow enthusiasts that may be willing to share a lot of information and tips that you can’t always find anywhere else. If frequencies have been changed for any reason, you may find out from a friend in a group or forum before you head out to the track.

NASCAR Frequencies Can Change From Race To Race

Each of the drivers in a race has several NASCAR frequencies to broadcast on. Even the governing body of NASCAR itself can’t determine which frequencies will be usable at all times. There are usually about four available frequencies for a driver. A primary and secondary as well as two alternates. Thankfully there are some websites that list all of these for scanner enthusiasts to make use of. But it’s not just for a single area of NASCAR. In some cases, the frequencies for all of the series including the NationWide, Sprint Cup and even CART racing.
