What we know so far

A busy infield? Crowded bleachers? Pack-racin’… in January?

No, it wasn’t quite the pre-season days of yore, but Daytona International Speedway was alive and kicking last week, with many familiar faces spinning laps for next month’s Daytona 500.

“That was quite different from what I remember,” said the week… most famous face, Dale Earnhardt Jr. “I’ve never driven the cars with the big spoiler on the back, so I was quite surprised when we were drawing how much drag the car had.”

Junior, along with nearly two dozen other drivers, were at the speedway last week for the two-day Next Gen test.

No, he’s not coming back to the Cup Series anytime soon (more on that later).
