Remember the promise SHR showed at Daytona the first time?

Mon Jul 01, 2013 11:28 am

The 14's 4th place finish in the Unlimited
The 14's 6th place finish in Duel 1
Tony's Nationwide race wi.
The 10 winning the pole for the 500
The 39 finishing with a top 5 in the 500
The 10 with a top 10 in the 500.

Hopefully the team can channel some of that success from the last time at Daytona into this week and have a good race. 8-)

The 14 is 16th in points right now
The 39 is 18th in points
The 10 is 27th in points(Stenhouse is 20th, hopefully Danica can turn it around and beat the other rookie by the end of the year)

Tonys won this Daytona race a lot, its the Daytona 500 he cant win. I don't expect the same results but curious to see how qualifying goes this time around but don't think itll be the same as other teams may have found speed where they lacked it in the 500 earlier.

Avoiding the "big one" is "key" at this race. :roll:

the racing last time at Daytona was really bad & boring. Does anyone know if they are making any modifications to the cars for Daytona?

yeah, a falling car shows more promise than a repeat of the stats above

It may be a small glimpse of hope, but I'd have to guess that they learned at the end of the 500 that passing IS possible. Limited, yes, but possible.

Hopefully some stuff was learned on the pre-race/pre-qualifying setup in Danica's car, and maybe a little from Ryan's changes throughout the race, as he progressed to a top 5 finish in Feb.

Could be a good week for SHR imo.

Considering Tony's wreck early at the opener Daytona, this race has to be better then that for him anyway baring he stays out of trouble this time? 8-)

Ok edited as watching the first practice doesn't look that fast this time around although Danica's speed within the group was 7th overall so OK but Tony and Ryan --what happened to them back in the 30's? Sure its only practice but if qualifying is rained out Tony and Ryan are going to be starting from nearly the back although with these plate races drivers do hang around the back so we'll see? :roll:

Racing Daytona in July is totally different than it is in February. :?

Danica once again top SHR qualifier at Daytona. Not sure what happened to Ryan farther back, but the race is a different story, to be determined tomorrow night? Hopefully the racing isn't boring as mentioned the first race was this yr, but with hotter temps I don't see much passing as the track will be slippery for sure until later in the race when everything gets crazy. This race is mostly about luck & survival not to get caught in a wreck or have other issues that takes you out early like tony last yr. Good Luck to SHR to survive everything till the end and be able to race for the win or at least a good top 5 or top 10 result? 8-)
