Daytona: Speedweeks 2012

Kyle Busch saved it! And won the Bud Shootout?!

Carl Edwards scored his first ever Daytona 500 pole.

Trevor Bayne locked himself into the 54th Great American Race and will try to defend his 2011 win.

And these are just a few of the headlines from an already exciting Speedweeks. The Gatorade Duels later today will determine the starting grid for Sunday’s race, which is setting up to be one for the ages. The tandem drafting which dominated restrictor plate racing in 2011 seems to have taken a back seat to the pack racing NASCAR fans had grown used to. When the checkered flag falls Sunday afternoon, a Daytona 500 champion will be crowned and another Speedweeks will have come and gone.

Tune in to “On the Brinck” Monday night on Fusion 93 KMSC at 7:00 CDT as I recap the weekend with help from’s Nathan Butler.

Until then, boogity boogity boogity boys, we’re going racing again!
