Many NASCAR races at Daytona ... but 500,000 are waiting!

Featured and season opening NASCAR (Sprint Cup) Race, the Daytona 500 has not taken place yesterday, Sunday, the incessant rain has forced the organizers to give starting today Monday around noon. If the main course is expected, entries, that is to say, the qualifying races and support, they have all been presented last weekend.

The two qualifying races of the Sprint Cup were relatively predictable, but the tests Nationwide and Camping World Trucks, were filled with twists and pileups, in the purest tradition of NASCAR old!

At Daytona, the media attention is above all concentrated on debut Sprint Cup Danica Patrick. Very experienced in IndyCar, Danica still has many things to discover in NASCAR and if she realizes beautiful single track performance (she particularly clinched pole position for the Nationwide race), she hit the wall both in its qualifying race and the Nationwide ordeal.

For many American fans, not understanding well the subtleties of motorsport and completely ignoring the path of the driver before to see happen in NASCAR, Danica is a product of marketing, and even "fantasy brings NASCAR to meet ratings listen to his tests on American TV "according to a" self-proclaimed expert "! The truth is that Danica Patrick has demonstrated phenomenal abilities of learning throughout the week at Daytona. Both times she hit the wall, it had been thrust by an opponent. His maneuvers clearly demonstrate that pack very tight, she needed more experience before being able to compete for the win but it certainly has a good chance of a successful career in NASCAR.

In the Nationwide Series race Saturday, the first seven accident occurred in the last corner and this is how James Buescher (Chevrolet), more accustomed to the tests of the series trucks driver was found the first to cross the finish line. The day before, the race of the Camping World Trucks Series smiled to another unknown pilot public, John King (Toyota), of which this was only the eighth in the series starting. The presentation of 500000 Monday will complement the activities NASCAR Daytona this winter.

North American Rally Cup was also in the PIECE last weekend, with the presentation of the 100 Acre Wood Rally in Missouri. Laureate of this test in 2011, the Quebecois Antoine L'Estage was forced to abandon (transmission failure on his Mitsubishi lancer Evolution 10). The American Ken Block (Ford Fiesta HFHV) has wins, before England's David Higgins (Subaru Impreza WRX).
