There will be several NASCAR guys running in this event. I really have no problem with Sprint Cup guys racing. It could even give them a bit of an advantage for the next two weeks, but probably not much. These cars are very different from the cars that they race on a regular basis. It could, however, give them a feel for how smooth or rough the track will be. It will also be interesting to see how well they do. These cars are not nearly as hard to race as Sprint Cup cars. The problem for them comes with racing over long periods of time. There is never really a dull moment at Daytona!!
