One reply on “Daytona 500: By the Numbers”

Did you see the race? I was there with my eyes on the 51 the whole time. Dillon shoved Allgaier into the wall, not the other way around. Justin even had the class not to name names in his tweet about it. I heard it as it happened on the scanner and he did name names to his spotter.
