This Bud's for you, Dale!

Dale Jr. and the #8 Budweiser team did it. They won the Daytona 500. Junior was strong all day long. He led about the first 27 laps then lurked in the top five until he passed Tony Stewart with 19 laps to go. It was not the most exciting Daytona 500 that I've ever watched, but it was exciting to see Junior win his first Daytona 500.

In other news, rookie Scott Wimmer finished third in his Cat Dodge. Nice work by Scott and his crew.

Now time for another prediction: Just like Dale Jr. was a flag-to-flag winner in today's Daytona 500, I predict that Junior will be the flag-to-flag winner of the Nextel Cup.
