Great start to the Monster era.

 

Clash rained out and rain for most of the Speed Week.

Joey Logano wins The Clash at Daytona after a last lap crash between Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski. 

 

Kyle Busch lands second and Alex Bowman gets third.

 

Side Note: the switch from Miss Sprint Cup to the Monster Energy Girls is... interesting.

Third straight year for #24

Third straight year for Crew Chief Alan Gustafson

 

 

Here's to hoping 3rd time is a charm.

It's more than interesting. It's appalling in my eyes.

I wouldn't call them appalling, it's definitely not what we are used to with the girls being in driving suits, but it isn't awful. I know I've seen girls wearing way less on race weekends before. Especially in those promotion booths outside the racetracks

I was convinced Junior was going to win the Pole; but Chase snatched it from him at the last possible second.

 

Chase becomes the first driver since Ken Schrader (1988-1990) to win the 500 Pole in consecutive seasons.

I just think that women wearing that sort of stuff is stupid. It's like a year long subscription to the Swimsuit Issue kinda.

I was hoping that Clint could do it;but alas Chase got it again.

 

On the note of Kenny Schrader,is he still racing?

I must say, it's appealing in my eyes. :)

I believe Kenny was in the field for last year's Truck race in Eldora.

I just don't get how 3 females in black leggings and a leather tank top and maybe a pushup bra is offensive to anyone other than the bible thumpers.

NASCAR was founded with pretty ladies wearing tight outfits in victory lane.  The Monster women are nothing new.

Exactly, I'd even say the Monster girls were wearing stuff that was rather conservative by today's standards

Was thinking about the elite plate drivers in the sport. In the last 3 seasons, excluding Almirola's rain shortened win, Dale Jr Keselowski Hamlin and Logano have won every points plate race. That's pretty incredible. Makes me think Brad wins Sunday

I mean usually the plate tracks produce the upset winners (i.e. Cope,Ragan,Waltrip) but we haven't had one in a full race since Ragan's win in 2013. It makes me thinking that NASCAR doesn't want upset winners.
