The Daytona 500 is for NASCAR to return to its roots

In NASCAR, driving with the stockcars, cars that look like street-legal car’s. The class was in the late forties, was founded in Daytona Beach, Florida. The superspeedway has been since 1959 and is the home of the 500-mile. The track is four kilometers long and the race is 200 laps. In 1982, the ” 500 ” will be the end of the NASCAR season.

Strategy plays a big role in NASCAR

The episode Poor and Stupid from Southpark and the movie Talladega Nights, is in the picture, is that NASCAR is a “dumb” sport. This is not entirely true. There is a great deal of money, thought, and development work. During the races due to crashes, a lot of neutralisaties -cautions, called, to be followed by reboots. Especially in the final stage may be strategic choices that make the difference between winning and losing.

NASCAR is just like a Formula 1 pit-stops, where, in addition to links exchange to be used should be included. The brandstofstrategie is, therefore, an important consideration if there are relatively few reboots it. Sometimes it pays off to have a chance to take it to be, or not to be filling up in anticipation of a possible neutralisaties.

In NASCAR, things are different than in Formula 1

It is defined as between Max Verstappen and Esteban Ocon are in Brazil to 2018 and beyond) was a small change at the end of it in NASCAR. Not that the riders are to each other every week for the brain to take in, but it comes up on a regular basis that it is a push or a punch is awarded.

With forty-five participants in each race, the likelihood is greater that there are some differences of opinion, but, in NASCAR there are the standards that riders have with each other finish, which is not always possible. There may be a lot more to the job, so there’s even more.

In NASCAR, many more riders have a chance at a profit than it is in F1

If we have a selection of some of the greatest champions and contenders than it should be Jimmie Johnson (Chevrolet) is called.

The last title of the 44-year-old Californiër dates out to 2016, and he has to at least 2017, not won. Johnson drives the number 48.

Kyle Busch (Toyota) is the defending champion. In november of last year, he picked up his second world title. Busch is from Las Vegas and is considered to be a sort of an enfant terrible, due to his ruthless style of driving, and usually strong opinions. Just like the majority of drivers are going to also have Busch in a confrontation with one of the other drivers / riders don’t shy away from it if he deems it necessary. In the car, he is an excellent driver. Busch drives the number 18.

Kevin Harvick (Ford) was the champion in 2014, and this is known as “the closer”, a race car driver who is in the final stage of the race at a disadvantage you can make up to continue to win. The strength of Harvick (California) is due mainly to the races without a lot of cautions. It is true that he is already 44 and is, therefore, somewhat on the wane. Harvick will drive with the number 4.

Joey Logano (Ford) was one of the younger top riders (29), and it is going to be the champion by 2018. His driving style was not always popular with his peers, making him a regular in the riots yourself. When Logano’s day, it is the driver of World at lightning speed. Logano drives the number 22.

Brad Keselowski (Ford) was the champion in 2012, but has since struggled to really get titelkandidaat-to-be. The 36-jarrige race car driver from Michigan has been very strong in the hogesnelheidsbanen, although he won, never at Daytona. Keselowski will drive with the number 2.

Chase Elliott (Chevrolet), is the most popular rider among American fans. This is mainly because he is the son of NASCAR champion Bill Elliott, and out of Georgia, making him one of the few remaining riders from the southern part of the US. The 24-year-old Elliott is a great talent that we have had six races and took the lead. He will drive the no. 9.
