    My dad & I went to the Streamline Hotel yesterday. Bobby & Donnie Allison, Red Farmer, & several more legends were there. My dad & Bobby both had very critical head injuries back in the day and have a hard time with memory. Red is still sharp as a tack, he's been racing 72 years and still going strong. We saw a few other friends too, always great to meet up when they visit Daytona.

    For #TBT and Valentine's Day, this is PL Newman, winner of SCCA Runoffs at Road Atlanta in 1976.
    The photo is funny because that is Paul's wife Joanne Woodward on the left as the trophy girl kisses him.

    Wallace triumph could be winner for NASCAR
    DAYTONA BEACH — In a perfect world, here are the top three names NASCAR would love to see win today’s Daytona 500:
    Bubba Wallace.
    Bubba Wallace.
    And Bubba Wallace.
    Memo to Bubba: Your sport needs you terribly.
    Not just because of the color of your skin but because of the colorfulness of your personality. Because of your humor and your sarcasm and your cockiness and your candidness.
    “We need characters,” veteran Cup driver Jamie McMurray said. “We need Bubba.”
    More than ever.
    Wallace triumph could be winner for NASCAR

    Revved up for Racing
    sentinel special section

    Fan favorites Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and Danica Patrick all have retired, but that simply adds more intrigue to this year’s Daytona 500. NASCAR’s Super Bowl could serve as a coming-out party for the sport’s next star. Las Vegas oddsmakers favor those starting near the front — William Byron, Alex Bowman, Kevin Harvick and defending season champ Joey Logano. But don’t count out Jimmie Johnson, who is fired up after going winless in Cup races in ’18.
