20 Year Old Rookie 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.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The white No. 3 decals are no bigger than a fist and sit just above and behind the driver’s side window of all the Richard Childress Racing team’s Chevrolets. Crew members wore black baseball caps with the same No. 3 logo and driver Tony Stewart strolled through the Daytona International Speedway garage Friday afternoon clutching one of the prized caps himself.
Friday marked exactly 10 years since the driver of the Richard Childress Racing No. 3, seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, was killed in Turn 4 of this track after crashing on the last lap of the Daytona 500. The speedway will remember the NASCAR icon with a moment of silence and fans will hold up three fingers on the third lap of Sunday’s Daytona 500.
But for such an overwhelming event, it has been a subdued, subtle and suiting anniversary.
For the past week, Earnhardt’s competitors, teammates and friends have shared emotional stories about that fateful Sunday afternoon. But the one person you won’t see participate in any contrived memorial this weekend is Earnhardt’s son, Dale Jr. No hat, no decal. None necessary.
“I’d personally rather just watch it and stand on the sidelines,” Earnhardt said of the various tributes and memorials planned for the weekend.
“It’s more fun for me hearing how other people reflect, hearing other people’s stories. I know how I feel in my heart and I don’t feel a real need to discuss that a lot.
“I want to do what’s right and honor him, but I don’t need to do it in front of a bunch of people. I feel like he carries his own weight and he doesn’t need me being a part of the celebration or whatever you want to call it. I don’t want to take away from it in any way.”

Holy burying the lead, Batman. The new Miss Sprint Cup was on this latest season of “The Bachelor.”
The release then gives a brief bio on the new Miss Sprint Cup. Her name is Kim Coon. She’s the blonde on the right. Here’s some release copy verbatim.
Coon was pulled from the world of corporate marketing to join the Miss Sprint Cup lineup. Born and raised in Orlando, Fla., Coon received her undergraduate degree from the University of Miami and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama. Always on the go, she’s balanced a career in marketing and PR with her role as an NFL cheerleader and a volunteer with the Susan G. Komen For the Cure campaign.
Upon looking for some pictures on Al Gore’s favorite invention, I stumble across this picture.
Looks awfully similar to the picture in this link, which comes from this season’s “Bachelor.” Kimberly from the show is in marketing, just like Kim from the release. Kimberly was born in Orlando, just like Kim. Kimberly was an NFL cheerleader. Kim was too.
Turns out Kimberly failed to get a rose, which according to my wife is a victory because this year’s bachelor is “Cute, but dumb and occasionally a word that rhymes with boosh.” She watches this show more closely than Ron Jaworski watches NFL game film; so, I trust her judgment. Plus, this article suggests
Kimberly didn’t seemed to bummed to leave.

During his annual State of the Union address on Jan. 25, President Barack Obama did something nearly unprecedented in politics – he had Republicans and Democrats actually sit together in one big, co-mingled group. Generally, the two opposing parties are separated from one another like family members at Thanksgiving dinner, although it can sometimes be challenging to tell which table belongs to the grownups and which to the kids.
Just one day later, in his ‘State of the Sport’ address on Jan. 26, NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France did much the same thing, informing the assembled press corps and a live TV audience that the 2011 season would serve to better blend the sport’s top two performance aspects.
Consistency has always been critical to success in NASCAR, which has the longest season in professional sports. It’s not exactly what you might call breaking news, but during his remarks, France pinpointed another characteristic particularly important to fans – “They care about winning. They don’t want drivers to just be content with a good points day or a good run,” he said.
Since the inception of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format in 2004,‘racing for points’ during the first 26 races of the season simply meant a driver worked his way into the Top 12, then did whatever was necessary to ensure he stayed there. If this meant ‘laying up’ and settling for a Top 5 or Top 10 finish instead of going whole-hog for the win, he did it, in order to have an opportunity to race for the title at the end of the year.
I don’t remember this being much of an issue in the early years of the Chase, but things did flare up a bit in 2009 when Juan Pablo Montoya publicly stated that he had been points racing all season, with the single purpose of making the Chase. A lot of fans didn’t really grasp the charm of that comment.
Another thing fans haven’t altogether grasped over the years is NASCAR’s somewhat complicated scoring system. During a Jan. 21 press conference at Daytona International Speedway, Kevin Harvick remarked that at the end of the 2010 season, he had gotten a text message from New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi, congratulating him on a good season but noting,” I don’t understand how you have the best year and not win. I don’t understand your points system.”
Now, I’m the type who, when required to figure out a restaurant tip or double a recipe, still occasionally suffers from a sort of post-testing stress disorder, flashing back to the math portion of the SAT. And granted, baseball’s scoring system is pretty easy to understand – you get a W when you win and an L when you lose and that pretty much sums it up.
But I get Girardi’s point. We shouldn’t have to work quite as hard as Abbott and Costello to figure out who’s on first.
