2004 Daytona 500

Today I watched the Daytona 500, this is unusual for me because this is the first stock car race I have ever seen. Before the start of the race they had Leanne Rimes sing R.O.C.K. in the USA and then she went on to sing the National Anthem. Also they had President George W. Bush start the race. Then Whoopi Goldberg wave the green flag. There were a few accidents in this race. Then about 19 laps to go Dale Earnheart Jr. moved into first place. He held off the rest of the pack and took the checkered flag. Overall the race was pretty exciting especially to see all that goes into the race. Also to see all the history behind the race it makes it the Superbowl of car racing. All in all I was glad I was able to watch the race.
