Next up for NASCAR: Atlanta! In some respects, the action on the track is even better compared to Daytona since they re-configured the Atlanta track a few years ago. It is anyone's guess who might win! Fans can expect not only tight side-by-side racing, but also 3-4-5 wide at times! We've said it before... it is Must See TV!
Congrats to Will Byron! He survived the Big One late in race to win the Great American Race. A large number of seats were filled despite a one day delay in dropping the green flag thanks to Mother Nature. Just about half the field was wiped out in the mega wreck with just under 10 laps to go. Ross Chastain was leading and intensely blocking every driver behind him. Finally, with time running out, several drivers including Brad Keselowski said enough is enough and they tried to create an opening to the front. That's when the Big One happened! After the race, Daytona 500 frontrunner much of the day, Joey Logano made mention of Chastain's aggressive blocking. No one publicly called Chastain out. Maybe there wasn't a reason. Nonetheless, those behind him had that know or never attitude. Moves were made, and the huge wreck started sending cars everywhere!
Louisville's Ben Rhodes got caught up in a mishap at Daytona in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series ending his day. Kimmel Racing based in Clarksville, Indiana had two cars entered at Daytona for the ARCA 200. It wasn't a good day for ARCA veteran Scott Melton. He wound up 29th. However, newcomer Gil Linster finished 7th driving the #68 Kimmel Racing Ford.
The 76th season for the NASCAR Cup Series is underway. There's a strong mix of older veteran drivers and also several racers with 4-6 years of experience like 500 winner William Byron. Then there are rookies and drivers with only a couple of years behind the wheel. It is going to be interesting. We want to also note, several new sponsors have signed with race teams. Whether NASCAR or your local track-- sponsors are a must!
In other racing series, the Indy Car Series kicks off its season soon, March 10 in St. Petersburg, Florida. And if you like raw speed, the Lucas Oil sponsored NHRA jump starts its new year March 7-10 in the Gainesville, Florida Nationals.

Serving Kentucky and Southern Indiana
Race teams know you have to be in strong mental, emotional, and physical shape to wheel a competitive car or truck around the track. Running 100 short track or 500 big laps can be challenging for a driver. Seconds count when hitting the pits for service. A crew must be fast and make no mistakes. And all must be physically ready. Then there are wrecks! A car slams into a wall or a racer is caught up in a multiple car mishap. Safety equipment has improved greatly over the years. Still, drivers and crew members get medical help for aches and pains. And that includes back and spinal care.
Locally, Dr. Paul Constante with Dynamic Chiropractic has helped treat college, pro, high school, and other athletes for years. The list of Louisville area patients includes racers. Professionals and every day people also turn to Dr. Constante and his team for chiropractic care and treatment. He serves patients from Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
