Rickie Traeger Blog: Daytona 500 is here!


Well the Daytona 500 has started a few minutes ago!  I am super excited!

All though it is bittersweet. Danica Patrick, it is her last race. I was hoping she would continue her career in Nascar.  But this is her final race 🙁    Hopefully she can win!

Oh man,  I have to eat my words!  I am rooting for William Byron this year.  I did not think Darrell “Bubba” Wallace JR was not going to be good. Holy cow, I was wrong!  That man is kicking butt and taking names at Daytona right now. Bubba Wallace JR will definitely be one to watch this year.

Rickie Traeger Blog: Who To Follow In Nascar In 2018

At the time of writing this, they are only 12 laps into the Daytona 500.  They had their first caution with a blown engine. I am actually shocked with the new aerodynamics from the new car design, that there has not been an accident yet.

I really hope no one crashes Danica.  Whenever she does good, someone always wrecks her.  I was reading online, on all the BS she has been through because she is a female driver in Nascar. On how they purposely crashed her, lots of harassment, etc…

Alright I am going to pop off here and will probably edit this at the end of the race.  So check back later on
