Daytona 500 - 2007

As I last posted, yesterday was the start of the NASCAR season with the Daytona 500!
Congratulations to the winner - Kevin Harvick.
The race started out slow and boring... but with about 50 laps to go it got GOOD.
Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart were running 1 and 2 and crashed out. Then one of my faves - Jimmie Johnson was in a big accident that brought out the green-white-checkered. Then, on the last lap, with Mark Martin in the lead, Kevin came on strong. At the same time a big accident happened - it took out much of the field - including Jeff Gordon.. and had Clint Bowyer skidding across the finish line on his hood!

Thankfully everyone was fine, and Jeff Gordon still finished 10th!
The top 5 were:
1. Kevin Harvick
2. Mark Martin

3. Jeff Burton
4. Mike Wallace
5. David Ragan
And since this is the first race, the points leaders are the same as the top 5!
Next stop - California on Sunday!
