Scores Of Idiots Don't Realize Fox Is Airing Last Year's Daytona 500

Update: See bottom for newest idiots Fox News and ESPN. Today's Daytona 500 is currently in a weather delay, so Fox is airing last year's edition.

How To Win The Daytona 500

Ok, let me be honest right up front, I haven't raced at the Daytona 500 yet and therefore I haven't won it yet. However, I have a pretty good record on the super speedways of NASCAR, including a win in the Truck Series at Talladega, so I'm sure that I can explain to you how drafting works and, in doing so, how a race… » 2/11/14 2:39pm 2/11/14 2:39pm

50 Cent's Attempt To Kiss Erin Andrews Was One For The Ages

In a sports moment rivaled only by Joe Namath's come-ons to Suzy Kolber, rapper 50 Cent—inexplicably making the infield rounds at the Daytona 500—took Fox's Erin Andrews to the Candy Shop of love, though it appears EA wasn't digging it so much.

Some Men (In The 18-49 Demographic) Just Want To Watch The World Burn

FOX easily won the ratings battle with a rain-delayed, fire-delayed Daytona 500. There's a lesson here, and I'm pretty sure it's "don't underestimate the drawing power of things blowing up." » 2/28/12 1:00pm 2/28/12 1:00pm

NASCAR Drivers Spent Yesterday's Daytona 500 Rain Delay Mentioning…

This will surprise absolutely nobody familiar with the constant shilling for products and sponsors that takes place before, during, and after NASCAR races, but when slapped together back-to-back it's worth realizing that yesterday's eventual postponement of the Daytona 500 wasn't a lost cause for everyone.

NASCAR Media Take The Restrictor Plates Off Their Praise For Trevor…

OK. We get it. Trevor Bayne is going to save NASCAR. Or something like that.
