Our esteemed colleague FuriousWedge (his parents thought that would be a fine name) is attempting to do the impossible: blog the entire 24 Hours at Daytona. Follow along on at his site The Furious Wedge for frequently amusing updates.

It looks like The Speed Geek will also be joining in on the fun, although that will be on the Twitter simulcast. Follow them with @FuriousWedge and @TheSpeedGeek as they track past, present, and future IndyCar drivers like:
· Jeff Bucknum
· Ryan Briscoe
· Scott Dixon
· Tomas Enge
· Dario Franchitti
· Memo Gidley
· Ryan Hunter-Reay
· Alex Lloyd
· Darren Manning
· Raphael Matos
· Juan Pablo Montoya
· Max Papis
· Danica Patrick
· Buddy Rice
· Jimmy Vasser
· Jeff Ward

All these and Patrick Dempsey, too! Oh, and don't forget Marco Andretti and Robert Doornbos in A1GP racing later today. Might want to pack an extra bag of Doritos for all of these festivities.

    Hey, the people asked for more Jeff Bucknum. Who were we to deny them?

    thanks for the plug/ p.s. there's two of us technically: Ron Furious (Mike) & SandWedge (Allen), hence the name, I'm the one always posting the racing news, Furious generally sticks to basketball, football, baseball.

    Really? Oh man, now I feel like Dorothy when the curtain gets pulled back on the great and powerful Wizard of Oz.

    Anyhow, thanks though for the clarification. I'll try to remember who is whom, but forgive me if I get you mixed up at some point in the future. Honestly, I still can't tell the two guys on "MythBusters" apart.

    Message for Sandwedge, since you don't allow anonymous posts and and I fear giving the Google/Media complex my identity.

    You are awesome, sir!

    If for no other reason, than you have seized this opportunity to sit around, watch TV, and blog all day and night, like a lumberjack, but with a computer and stuff.

    Would that Fox/Speed shared your dedication to this tremendous racing event. Heck, I'd settle for another 90 minutes on Fox Sunday to see the end of the race, as I don't get Speed.

    Anyway, enjoying your breathless coverage.

    Thanks for the encouragement, we just hit the halfway point. I didn't realize we had ours set to not allow anonymous, that should be fixed now.
