Unfortunately this doesn't bode well for next week's Daytona 500. This race was a typical modern-day restrictor plate race. It was dangerous in the pack and very difficult to pass the leader. The only way to pass is to get hit in the back by another driver which seriously upsets your car. This is terribly dangerous at any speed but especially at nearly 200 MPH.
Hopefully the drivers will all get through this week without any serious injuries.
