The Superbowl is a big deal. However, race fans know DAYTONA is THE BIG DEAL. Today is the start of the Nascar season and I am watching from my common seat on the couch. (I also sleep here and eat here.)
My numbers to watch are 24- Jeff Gordon, 48- Jimmy Johnson, and 55- Michael Waltrip. I like some others as well, Carl and Kasey, for example. But the first three are my favorites. So who am I rooting for today? Mark Martin. He's 50, a gentleman, and he has never won Daytona. Go Mark!
In another note, I ask for prayers for my older brother, also named Mark, who is experiencing some medical problems. He sees a doctor in March. Thanks.
