Daytona “News” and Notes

—Well, it’s the first “return date” of the year, as Nascar’s best will strap on the restrictor plates at historic Daytona International Speedway Saturday Night on NBC!!! …unless it rains.

—From The “Blind Squirrel” Dept: Brian France will NOT be speaking at the GOP Convention.

—Good on Indianapolis Motor Speedway for building a dirt-track inside turn three as a “gift” for Tony Stewart.  Just think—something ELSE for the remaining 734 IndyCar “fans” to complain about!

—In somewhat-breaking news, John Wes Townley has withdrawn the #05 car from this weekend’s Xfinity Series race.  Just goes to show ya—you get into a fight with your daddy’s car, you lose driving privileges for the week.

—Oh, and David Starr is going full-time for RSS Racing in the 93 car.  This.  Changes.  EVERYTHING.
