I'm glad I decided to watch the Truck race at Daytona. I had no idea Joe was in the field.

Shoot! John Hunter was in that wreck. Looks like Joe is okay.

Nemco twitter said John Hunter has minor damage should but should be good to go.

Interesting to see this new 5-minute repair rule in effect. I can already see some controversy brewing if they don't have the actual time visible to the crew men. 20 seconds over the limit and a truck that looks like it can run will have to retire.

Whew! That was almost an embarrassing disaster on the backstretch.

Joe got a tiny piece of that wreck. So close! Still good to go.

For old times sake indeed. Joe got 5th and ruined the low average age of the top-5. Hyuk! Very happy with this finish. And John Hunter came back fom 3 incidents to get 4th. Wrap it up and put a bow on it.

I like what Joe said during the Daytona Practice. He told John Hunter that for a truck win, he would have no problems moving him or anybody else for the win. Not wreck them, but move them.

I know I haven't been here in a while...no Joe means my NASCAR interest level has been quite low...but I am still around. Last night was heaven for me. Both Nemecheks running strong...John Hunter getting lap down and coming back...and missing that last wreck to finish to finish 4th and 5th! WOW! I am trying very hard to get back into NASCAR this season and the new segment format may help. Hoping it makes the mile and a half tracks more interesting and better racing overall. Nice to see you all still here!

Trucks have ben exciting, I think John Hunter and Joe make for a great story. We have all seen how the media doesn't cover Joe as wel as others, but this Father vs Son competition is candy for the media. It is bound to get more sponsors attention.

Good to see the trucks working well, I hope they can repair and continue moving forward. Still a tough stretch here at the beginning of the season with the tracks spread out west.
Never gonna quit. NEMCO is legit!
