    Daytona 500 Updates

    Race was delayed for over 30 minutes due to a problem with the electronic scoring system. Chase Elliott leads the first lap Earnhardt in 2nd.

    Kyle Busch won the first stage of the race under the new rules.

    I don't understand the point or necessity of the stages...

    Trying to energize a struggling "sport".

    Scoreboard delays don't help.

    Pretty good finish. I feel bad for Chase Elliot.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the stages. The 5 minute rule to fix the cars puzzles me, but what do i know.

    The stages...meh, could do without it. The rule on fixing the cars...love it. Always seemed stupid to see these cars go to the garage, and come back 40 laps down running around the bottom of the track with no hood or something.

    I understand the safety aspect of it, but if you crash early on and can fix the car say your 10 laps down and another big wreck happens you could potentially gain spots in the race still.
    I think we should see several guys get there first win at the cup level this year.

    Segments don't bother me but leave the restrictor plate races out of it. The only races where butts are in seats.
