RAN into Rick Hendrick in the Daytona Interational Speedway infield after the first of the Budweiser Duels Thursday. He says this will be his 30th year racing at the track. Says it feels like the first. On the first he didn't have a sponsor.
Is racing as much fun now as it was then?
"No," he says immediately.
"The pressure," Hendrick says.
TALKED to Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Thursday. Didn't bring up Danica Patrick until the final question.
I asked: When was the last time somebody talked to you without asking about Danica?
"This is it," Stenhouse said.
HEARD a great description of Mark Martin. He has the face of a 70-year-old, the body of a 20-year-old and he listens to rap.
That pretty much says it all.
