The 2014 Daytona 500 is just weeks away and two fan favorites are returning to the track after a long absence.
Michael Waltrip Racing’s Brian Vickers was sidelined with a blood clot in his leg, but now he’s off blood thinners and barring any complications doctors tell him…
(Vickers) “You can go racing.”
Tony Stewart fractured his leg and though he’s mentally prepared to race again…
(Stewart) “I’m not race fit like a used to be, but that’s something that will come back very quickly.”
Officials at Texas Motor Speedway announce a multi-year title sponsorship agreement for its Spring race with Duck Commander, the brand of best-selling duck calls and Robertson family-owned company featured on the reality show ‘Duck Dynasty’.
And Toyota Motor Corporation and Daytona International Speedway have signed an 11-year agreement starting next year that provides Toyota with naming rights and makes them an official partner of the Daytona 500.
