Let's go racin'!
The Bud Shootout is the opening salvo for the start of the 2010 stock car season. It usually consist of 75 laps around a 2.5 mile oval in Daytona Beach, Florida, the hallowed ground for any racing fan.
The line up consist of eligible cars picked from points by team and owner garnered the year before. Once chosen, the drivers gather on the track for a blind draw party. Here the drivers pick their starting point the night before the race..
This year 24 drivers qualified to wait for the green flat to drop.. When the smoke cleared, Kevin Harvick won, driving his Chevrolet beneath the yellow checkered flag due to a wreck which nearly took out the whole field. Right behind him, Kasey Khane came in second.
Speed week begins! So as Darryl Waltrip says, "Tighten those belts and let's go racing boys!"
