Daytona Anything But Independent

Day weekend race. (Wilkerson Photography)
It's the best time of the year again!  The weather is hot, the pools are cold, the grills are lit...and so are the fireworks!

This (long) weekend, most of us will celebrate our Independence Day.

That is, unless, you're a Sprint Cup Series driver.  They'll be celebrating anything but independence.

While most of us enjoy the liberties of freedom.  NASCAR drivers will be linked with a ball-and-chain to a draft partner in hopes they can just stay free of Daytona's catastrophic "Big One."
