I'd paid my money, so I waited. Then I fell asleep. And that was only Sunday. After a working press day on Monday, I fell asleep again. I want my money back.
Only I don't. Because I've got it taped, and the Daytona 500 only comes around once a year - even if it took more than a year for this one to come because of a Super Bowl clash and then the rain.
Being a rally man, I spend quite a lot of my time in the rain, so you might be surprised at my tolerance for a bunch of racers who wait for the sun to come out before they start their engines. But I love NASCAR in the way I love Group 4 Escorts; they sound beautiful and are best driven with a degree of lock on turn-in to a corner.

David Evans is the rallies editor of Autosport and Motorsport News. A successful rally driving father ensured an early introduction to motorsport and, fascinated as he was by rallying, the fourth estate was of equal interest. Having read (or at least looked at the pictures) from the age of two, he joined <i>Motoring News</i> in 1996 and later moved to Autosport in 2002.@davidevansrally More features by David Evans
