Bud Shootout, updates
February 12, 2011 by staff
Bud Shootout, The new track at Daytona International Speedway will be very welcoming to all those who want high-speed chase. Just ask Kyle Busch and Joey Logano. They all reached speeds over 203 mph during the final workout for the night Shootout Friday. They were not alone. Eight other drivers exceed 200 km / h as they are engaged in projects of two cars.
And like last season, NASCAR officials will host the aggressive driving, to reasonable limits. “The Shootout pits the top drivers all together at Daytona in a race and everyone will go for something -. The victory,” said Brian Vickers. “I like the direction the sport is heading to NASCAR wants us to ourselves on the track – racing hard – and does not” baby sit ‘as we bump into writing and it will be great. To a hell of a race. ”
The wait is over. Tonight at 8 ET on FOX, the NASCAR season begins with the operation of the Budweiser Shootout; a non-indent-point of the money will certainly be high intensity.
What can you expect to see? Consider this your cheat sheet for when the green flag drops tonight.
The 24 teams participating in Shootout tonight has a total of one hour and 45 minutes to practice Friday night, but it is still not enough to be able to predict what will happen tonight. Take Kevin Conway. Last year’s rookie of the year found no one to draft with sessions on Friday, but it is planned to start 16 24 drivers today. Derrike Cope is in a similar situation, even if he chose to focus on a single car drives it, but it started ninth session. This does not mean it’s a recipe for disaster for both drivers – remember that that’s life is in this race as a former winner of the Daytona 500 – but how they react is one of many great mysteries that will only be resolved tonight, when the green flag drops.
Tonight’s race will be a pleasure to watch the drivers take risks they would not no championship points on the line – oh, and for the reward money to win, not bad for a work overnight. But remember that this is just a drink; the meal comes in a little over a week with the workings of the Daytona 500 (Sunday, February 20 at noon ET on FOX). Look for teams to try different things and pilots to test the limits of their cars and the track it.
