NASCAR Post - Thursday !

Today's Daytona Dual 150 races should be something to watch. With four positions remaining open for Sunday's Daytona 500, today's races are going to be a dash and hopefully safe. Speeds approaching 200 miles per hour and three abreast racing normally dictate the "big one" and I see no reason why the same shouldn't happen again today. I hope not!

Fines and suspensions seem to be the theme for this year's race. Michael Waltrip leads this infamous group with a fine of $100,000.00 and driver and owner point deductions of 100 each. The teams of Casey Kahne and Matt Kenseth also received fines and suspensions because of illegal changes found in tech inspections. The races begin today at 2:00 p.m. on the Speed Channel. Looking forward to Friday, the Craftsman Truck series race will be televised Friday night, also on Speed. 

The Pictures: Michael Waltrip, who is bringing three new Toyota teams to Nascar, was Fined $100,000.00 and 100 driver points for a substance found during inspection this week. Registered car owner, Buffy Waltrip, was also docked 100 owner's points for the same infraction.
