Look at other rules Jim Peltz Los Angeles Times No race is 100 percent safe for fans, hence the legal fine print on the back of their tickets. But there also is no reason NASCAR cannot revisit its guidelines for restrictor-plate racing at Daytona and Talladega. Don't discard it — the crash that ushered in this type of racing, Bobby Allison's at Talladega in 1987, showed speeds needed to be capped. But there might be other rules or car adjustments that could reduce the risk.

There's not a chance George Diaz Orlando Sentinel Stop dreaming. Not going to happen. Winning the pole for the Daytona 500 is a nice bump for Danica Patrick on the NASCAR radar screen, but let's not get carried away with giddy expectations. Anybody from Fireball Roberts to Richard Petty can tell you that having a fast car at Daytona doesn't mean beans if you get caught up in those restrictor-plate bumper cars. Moving forward from Daytona, Patrick is surrounded by excellent personnel and equipment at Stewart-Hass Racing, but as a rookie with limited Cup experience, she's in for a bumpy ride as she deals with the grind of a 36-race season.

Tyler Hughes always liked to go fast. At age 3, he was powering a little go-kart around an asphalt track in a neighbor's backyard on the Eastern Shore. At 5 years old, he was whipping quarter-midget racecars around dirt tracks in Maryland and Delaware. At age 10, he was racing 600cc modified lite dwarf cars around Seaford, Del., picking up seven wins as the youngest rookie driver. Now, the 16-year-old from Cordova in Talbot County has been named NASCAR's 2012 Virginia Rookie of the Year in the Whelen All-American Series, a points championship for local NASCAR-sanctioned racetracks.
