With all the Media =(Nazicar Controlled) Hype about what a GREEEAAT race the 2005 Daytona 500 was-Let’s tell the Clearcut TRUTH-The 2005 Daytona 500 was a follow the Leader (T. Stewart) SNOOZER until the last few laps. To prove the TRUTH-Tell the fans how many GREEN FLAG lead changes there were in 203 laps,especially compared to past 500s. Thanks, H. Risher
