The article presents predictions made by the author regarding the automobile race Daytona 500. The Great American Race will feature 500 miles, 200 laps, and 800 left turns. Tony Stewart's dominance of the Pepsi 400 at Daytona last summer would have been legendary had his emotional win at the Brickyard not overshadowed it. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon will be strong. But one should not mistake that as proof that either has solved his problems from last season. The next three races--at California, Las Vegas and Atlanta--will be more revealing.
