'Other' rookies stealing show
|Dale Earnhardt rubbed elbows with sport's biggest names Monday night at the ESPYs in Las Vegas.|
|"THEY SAID IT"|
"I'm sure we got a little help in the draft. But, we were consistently right up there, and quick and good in the draft. We're looking forward to the 125s."
Benson was fastest in Tuesday's practice at 194.070 mph.
"The Twins are fun races when they are over. I love racing. I love competing, but man, it doesn't get stacked any heavier on you than Thursday."
Waltrip will start 12th in the second Twin 125 race.
"Our qualifying time is nowhere near good enough to make the race. We're going to have to work on the car and race really good in the draft. We're going to have to race our way into the Daytona 500.
Marcis is hoping to qualify for a record 33rd straight Daytona 500.
Sterling Marlin | No. 40 Coors Light Chevrolet
Daytona will always hold a special place in the heart of Marlin, who made the 1994 Daytona 500 his first victory after 279th career Winston Cup starts. Marlin was no flash in the pan either, coming back the next year to win a second straight Daytona 500. And guess what? Marlin's last win came in the 1976 Pepsi 400 at you guessed it -- Daytona International Speedway. Marlin entered Winston Cup in 1976 and has won 10 career races and finished a career-best third in points in 1995. It's been a while since he's been in Victory Lane. What better place than Daytona to return to a place he's been before.
