I just scanned the Daytona coverage on my Tivo. A couple questions:

- Why do all the DP cars have such wide, boxy, and - IMO - ugly cockpit roofs? Is it a design rule?

- Why do I find the 996 racers so darned attractive when I find street 996s rather plain? The racers are "curvier", with more flares, right?

- How can the NASCAR drivers go out there in the rain and dark, never having raced in the wet or at night before, and do so well? Good ole boys and all, but I really respect them.

- Why do so many of the racecars use yellow headlights? Is yellow better for night driving? If so, is it legal to use yellow headlights in CA?
