Today is the 58th Daytona 500, and the weather is suppose to be perfect…Party cloudy, high of 75, and ZERO CHANCE FOR RAIN!

The GREEN FLAG drops 12:31pm (CST)…a.k.a… Milwaukee Time (since that’s where I live) If you live somewhere else you’ll have to do some math.

The other particulars:

Pre-race concert: Florida Georgia Line

Grand marshal (who gives the command to start their engines): Actor Gerard Butler

Honorary pace car driver: WWE star John Cena

Color guard: Patrick Air Force Base Honor Guard

Pre-Race Prayer: Senior Pastor Sonny Gallman of Central Baptist Church in Daytona Beach

National anthem: 82nd Airborne Division Chorus, Fort Bragg, North Carolina

Flyover: U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds

Youngest Pole sitter ever – Chase Elliot – 20 years old

Front row:  Chase Elliott (youngest pole sitter ever) and depending on if he takes the inside or outside he’ll either have the #88 behind him or next to him.

My prediction: #3 will make it’s return to the WINNER CIRCLE when Austin Dillon takes the checkered later today.

Austin Dillon in the #3 (could this be this the 2016 Daytona 500 Winner?)

GOOD LUCK and a SAFE RACE to all the drivers
