OK lets see. First of all Jr. said over the radio "This track is not ready to be raced on." So there was something there and they did a great job getting it race-able. But lets also remember that these teams have to be on the track in Phoenix in just a couple days. Thats Daytona to Phoenix plus most have to drive back to their shops and get their cars for Phoenix as they are completely different. So in this case the gamble to race payed off but had it failed Nascar would have been under so much scrutiny. I am glad they raced but I with all I have mentioned I truly believe had Jr., Kenseth, Stewart, Gordon, etc been up front they wouldnt have chanced it especially with long travel.
