Make no mistake about it, the NASCAR landscape of 2000 and the landscape of 2013 are as different as north and south.
During those years, we have reveled with the drivers in their victories, and we have shed our fair share of tears in their worst of defeats. Both have been etched in our memories so we can share with future generations how improbable Trevor Bayne's 2011 Daytona 500 win was, or where we were on February 18, 2001.
As long as NASCAR is around, we will continue to see the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. We will share with our drivers their losses and gains, and we will continue to be along for the ride for the next several years.
Here are the highs and the lows of the last 14 years to hold us over.
