Speedweeks 2009

In only 10 days, the 2009 Speedweeks of Daytona will kick off with one of our favorite events, The Budweiser Shootout Drawing Party. Hopefully this year, the guys won’t find it amusing to throw the selection flags at Darlynn for “target practice”. We are blessed this year by having 2 of the hottest men in Country Music to bless the stage with their presence. Dierks Bentley is performing for the Shootout and as Darlynn previously posted, Keith Urban is performing at the Daytona 500. I for one will be stalking Dierks!
With so much going on both on and off the track during Speedweeks, I thought it would be helpful for all to post the 2009 Daytona schedule, that I graciously pulled from the DIS website. We will post an off track event schedule as soon as we can put one together!
