I think many of us side-eyed the schedule when we saw that Daytona was the cut-off race for the playoffs, but honestly what could possibly be a more exciting way to end the regular season? Seeing so many drivers fight for their first, playoff-clinching wins along with the mayhem that is Daytona I think is something that needs to stay. It’s essentially a crap shot that gives every driver one last chance to get in.
I remember my 1st Jimmie Johnson memory was seeing him as a random Busch series driver run headfirst into turn 1 of Watkins Glen at nearly full speed, and get out of his car, celebrating surviving what he thought was going to be the end of his racing career.
