Daytona VS Indianapolis; Which 500 Is The Better Race?

All of the focus this week has been on Daytona International Speedway and for good reason.

The Daytona 500 is coming up this weekend and the name Earnhardt has been mentioned a few trillion times already. First, it is the ten-year anniversary of the late Dale Earnhardt's tragic death at the famed speedway. Dale lost his life in a crash in turn four on the final lap of the 2001 Daytona 500.

While everyone has been focusing on that topic all week, his son decided to go out and grab the pole for the 500 mile race on Sunday. Unfortunately, Junior got into an accident during practice on Wednesday that will now take him from first to last in the starting lineup. The team has been scrambling to get the backup car ready in time, but the first laps in this car will turn will be in the Twin 125 race today. Dale actually is using his third car, as he lost his first one in the Bud Shootout last Saturday night.

The hype has been building, as "The Great American Race" will officially begin the new NASCAR season, which will have plenty of drama again this year. The change to the points scoring system has been a hot topic, as well as the changes made to the Chase format at the end of the season.
