The 2012 Daytona 500 officially kicks off the 2012 NASCAR schedule and racing fans everywhere are ready to go! Will NASCAR newcomer Danica Patrick shock the world and win the 2012 Daytona 500? You never can say never, but hopefully for her and her fans tomorrow will be better than today.
Patrick’s NASCAR debut was a rough one as she wrecked in Saturday’s season opener at Daytona International Speedway, not exactly getting off her new career on the right foot. Patrick started the race up front after she became the first woman to win a NASCAR pole since Shawna Robinson did it back in 1994.
So can the Go daddy.com girl pull of the huge upset win at Daytona? Sure she can. Last year, NASCAR new comer Trevor Bayne shocked everyone by taking the 2011 Daytona 500 as one of the biggest underdogs to ever claim the checkered flag in Daytona.
Everyone loves the underdog, right?
