On the road to Daytona: Preparing for pandemonium
|Speed Mail Larry|
Tribute to a legendLinda from Republic, Ohio: It would be great to see the No. 3 car as the official pace car for the Daytona 500. What a great tribute Larry McReynolds: I can't believe it's been five years. The 2001 Daytona 500 was the first NASCAR on FOX broadcast of a points race. I think the sport is doing a good job of remembering Dale Earnhardt by showing respect for him in subtle ways and not overwhelming fans with tributes. SPEED will televise NASCAR Five Years Later (Tues., 8 p.m. ET), a look at the sport five years after the loss of Dale Earnhardt, so we still have to walk the line about respecting what that man did for our sport while honoring what he would want us to do which is moving ahead for the sport's sake, the fans' sake and for all of the people who were a part of his career.
