I wonder if you could explain to me why NASCAR decided to run the Daytona 500 on a Thursday instead of on a Saturday like they usually do in the past?
Actually, the Daytona 500 will be on Sunday. It was on a Sunday last year, too. Thursday's two 125-mile races were to qualify for the Daytona 500.
Q: I'd like to know when the Mardi Gras parade in Louisiana is this year?
