Finally, NASCAR season kicks off today with the Daytona 500. I'm doing the Dance of Joy. My colleague the Indian is there now, been for the last week and he'll be back a week from tomorrow. I can't wait. Been working with Per Diem Boy (a guy who helps us out when we're swamped) and it ain't the same. Indian and I have been working together so long, we generally don't have to talk when we're both jobbing on the same car. Not that PDB is a bad mechanic, just the reverse, one of the best I've ever met, but it's a difference in style. Okay, so I admit it, I miss my pal. Anyway, Daytona starts at 1 Eastern on Fox.
