I'm watching the coverage of the delayed Coke Zero 400 on NBC, and as I write this, the race is about to begin. The commentators seemed to suggest that drivers are much more likely to experience crashes at Daytona then they are on other tracks. Is this true? If so, why?
Admittedly, the start of the race has been delayed for a while now, and the commentators are probably running out of things to say. I know very little about NASCAR, so I have no idea if it is true or not.
