Out of all the races during speedweeks, what is your favorite to watch?

Mine would have to be the Gatorade Duels. I like the thursday format it kinda breaks that week up, and enjoy watching the guys race there way into the 500.

I love the shootout because it means the wait is finally over - they are back!

The Arca race is the race that starts it all of and gets the blood flowing! With the duels have a lot on the line the are by far my favorite! I have spotted some truck and arca races! When not up top my favorite to watch is the truck race! Non experienced drivers battling with the vets make for great racing! But the history and the build up make the 500 an amazing race!!! The unexpected and the chance of something amazing happening makes Daytona so exciting and raw!!! Spirit unlimited this year with be the leAst of favorites because of people backing out and others that haven't earned it getting in!

Duels.

Because of the actual meaning. Who doesn't like two separate races in one day? A beautiful thing.

I may get some heat but I really dont care for the rest of "speedweek."

As far as I'm concerned season starts when you have control of your race.

maybe its because most of speedweek isn't televised down here but I don't really tune in til the Daytona 500

It could be a blessing or an annoyance depending on how you see it..or feel about it.

I think we get over saturated with Speedweek. Too much racing at one single place. No bueno imo.

There is a lot of it, however, without DVR and with my work schedule, I hardly get to see any of it. If I were to watch it all, I'd probably get tired of it, however I'm perfectly fine with the bit of practice and one, maybe two races that I get to watch.

I sorta like them in the order I see them for the same reason. They build up to the 500.

Shootout.

Expendable cars. Drivers go balls to the wall.

That and it used to be the only night race at a plate track till the end of the fall. Now every Daytona race is a night race :rolleyes:

i just love everything about speedweeks, it means we're racing again. my top would be the Duels but my favorite part of the whole thing is the 1st lap of the Daytona 500.

I liken the duels especially when cars are racing hard to try and make the field, which should be the case this year since there's 50 entries.

The 500.
I have never been to Daytona. Would have loved to have attended speedweeks when the old ASA series was strong. When all of their hot shoes were participating, and the modifieds with Evans and company had to be an overload.

Trucks for the racing action, 500 for the prestige. My favorite used to be the IROC race until...well....you know.

The Nationwide and the truck series followed by the cup race

I liked watching the Busch Clash and the Twin 125's but lost interest quite some time ago in any preliminary Daytona 500 stuff. I am with you in that I always liked the Busch race before the 500 better than the 500.

The "no push" rule has kinda messed it up but I still enjoy it and the truck race too, wish they were a bit longer races though

The 500 for me. So much history, so many dreams coming true, so many heartbreaks hidden in the smoke of the winners burnout.
