NASCAR Off-Season is Officially Over

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

NASCAR fans have had a long wait since the 2012 season wrapped up back in November with Brad Keselowski's Championship in Homestead.  The long off-season is finally over.   NASCAR racing is back.

Thursday is media day in Daytona. Then engines will fire for the first time on Friday when the cars take to the track for Sprint Unlimited practice live on SPEED.   Saturday will see the first competition of the year when the 2013 Sprint Unlimited will go green on Fox.  Finally Daytona 500 qualifying will roll off Sunday live on Fox.

It's a busy weekend for NASCAR's top drivers but a welcome sight for fans as we can finally stop speculating and get back to serious on-track action.

Hi and thanks for the newsletter, I enjoy it very much. I was wondering what team is Matt Kenseth driving for this year. He has been my wife and myselfs favorite driver for many years now. We can’t figure out whats going on with him and which team he’ll be with this year. We’d sure miss him if he retired this year. Thank you very much in advance for answering those questions. Rog

these new cars r the the saddest looking grocery getters i have ever seen on a nascar track.no race appeal.they all look like camrys now.if u want stock looking cars you could have used camaro,mustang,challenger,etc.of course that would leave out toyota.u might as well put little cazoo mufflers on them too!i dont care if they all get wrecked.first u bring in toyota now this.i dont think i can watch anymore.i am disgusted with nascar!
