      There’s been a lot of changes to NASCAR over the off season and now the boys of thunder are getting back onto the track for the first time in official racing. Today two practices were held for the Bud Shootout, a 75 lap race broken into two segments.

      I have to admit that I loved turning this on and seeing the cars back on the track at Daytona. My favorite, Jeff Gordon, had his 24-car leading the pack for much of the opening portion. With Jeff, though, practices rarely mean much. His

      goal is seldom to be in the lead. He wants to feel out the car and make sure that it handles the way he likes it. I’ve learned to ignore where he ultimately ends up, speed wise. Besides, at the restrictor plate races, it’s never how fast you are or where you start, it’s where you are on Turn 4 of the final lap.

      There was a lot of excitement, though. Not only were the cars bouncing all over the place, but we had a wreck. Mark Martin and Denny ...

      • Hamlin got into it. It’s hard to blame one or the other. Martin was moving one way and Hamlin another, and Hamlin got into Martin. More than likely, Hamlin made a bad last minute decision on where he was going to go, but both drivers were okay with it.

        This first wreck of the season took out Jamie McMurray and also affected four or five other drivers, including Joey Logano, though his damage was minimal. Clint Bowyer was a victim, too, but Clint was driving Kevin Harvick’s car. Harvick wasn’t

        even in Daytona. He apparently has the flu. It must be pretty bad that he isn’t even in the city yet.

        With practice cut short, there was a lot of on-air talking and speculating about the season, but for me, it was just fun seeing the guys back out there. Jimmie Johnson was loose just about everywhere and almost caused a couple of wrecks himself.

        The interesting question is what will the crashed cars do for backups? Will they dare to use their Daytona cars? Most suspect not, but we shall see!

        NASCAR is back!
