As I mentioned on another thread, I'm more of an IndyCar racing fan than NASCAR, but I'll watch some of the Daytona 500 race. Unfortunatley, this happens because of the way NASCAR sets it up. Restricter plate racing. everybody drafts each other until the last 20 or so laps, and the announcers keep saying "when will the big one occur". They set the races into 3 segments now, so I guess this could happen at the end of each segment, but they seem to drive a little more cautiously saving it for the last (and winning final) segment. My understanding was that Newman was leading with few laps left, and Blaney tried to grab the lead and hit him, thus locking bumpers and causing another car to "T" bone Newman starting the crash results. I told a friend who goes to the race every year (and is a big Newman fan), that I would watch the last 10 laps or so to see who would win, when he asked if I would watch the race. It's reached the level of a NBA basketball game, where you watch the last 2 minutes to see who will win (unless the Knicks are playing (yes, sorrily I'm a "shopping bag" Knicks fan). This year I didn't even watch the last 10 laps, but I'm sure to get the run down on what happened when I see my friend.
