With one week of testing in the books and the second week under way--what have we learned? Anyone--anyone--anyone?
We have seen that the cars from Hendrick Motorsports are fast. Is it learning if you already know the answer? The Toyotas have been fast in all test sessions. But, perhaps they have the most to prove and are just not part of the sandbag parade that has been so prevalent in years past.
It hasn't really been much of a secret that many teams would come to Daytona testing without much to prove and would, therefore, go through the testing sessions without their best cars or intentions.
There have been exceptions to the rule. Years past would see new car owners, new manufacturers or new drivers with a message to send and Daytona in January was a great place to send that message.
Could that be what Toyota is using the 2008 test for?
This week the Fast Lap asks:
1) With Morgan-McClure being the latest team to close their doors due to lack of sponsorship dollars, who might be next?
2) Are the speeds being turned by the Toyotas at testing, indicative of their 2008 performance?
3) Would Teresa have allowed Junior to open a nightclub in Charlotte and risk distraction?
4) Darrell Waltrip ran a poll to see if he should boogity-boogity-boogity, or not. How do you vote?
Let us know how you feel about these questions, or anything else that happened since last February in Daytona.
