Midnight Marbles, where we're black-flagging the cat

Great shot from Daytona this past weekend. That cat might want to seriously reconsider whether it wants to go any farther out onto the track. Ask Jeff Burton, for instance, what happens to animals that stray into the path of a Sprint car. (Or don't. He may still be too broken up. Also, thanks to Carol for the tip.)

It's a big week here at Marbleland; in addition to being Daytona week, this is officially the two-year mark since I started this crazy little gig. I began with this post on the Bud Shootout ... and it's been all downhill since then. Thanks to all of you for hanging around for all this time.

Now, to business. I'll be at Daytona this week for those little races, so if you're going to be there, hit me up at jay.busbee@yahoo.com or on Twitter at @jaybusbee and say hello. And for those of you stuck at home and/or snowed in, we'll be running a litany of features throughout the weekend, including our usual Twitterary journeys (like we did at Talladega, for instance) through the infield and garage, so be sure to stop back early and often. For now, get your last preseason kinks out, and we'll see you soon!
