Starting order. We don’t need a stinking starting order. Odds are out for the Daytona 500. Even though we have no clue who is starting in spots 3-43, there are some trends developing for the race and the 2010 season.Oh, wait. This information is for the sake of entertainment.

NASCAR SPONSOR KIM KARDASHIAN

Kim Kardashian and beauty supplier Sephora are sponsoring the No. 36 Tommy Baldwin Racing car driven by Mike Bliss during the Feb. 26-28 race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

WILL HAMLIN’S INJURY AFFECT HIS 2010 SEASON?

The big story right now is Denny Hamlin's injury. We are seeing a lot of discussion out there wondering whether his 2010 start will be just as good as his 2009 ending. Some of the PR from the Joe Gibbs camp is that this will be no problem.Let's compare some recent examples of NASCAR injuries. In 2009, Carl Edwards broke his right foot in September.  In the following twelve races after the injury (the last twelve of 2009), he had three Top Tens, and a total of ZERO Top Fives. His average ...
