A Preview of the 2024 NASCAR Season

Get ready for another exciting season of NASCAR with Marty Smith and Ryan McGee


The Anticipation Builds

The 2024 NASCAR season is just around the corner, and fans are eagerly waiting for the action to begin. With the recent release of the 'Full Speed' documentary on Netflix and the highly-anticipated Clash at the Coliseum behind us, all eyes are now on Daytona International Speedway. Qualifying for the Daytona 500 is set to start on Wednesday, followed by the Duel races to determine the final positions in the main event.

Marty Smith and Ryan McGee are the perfect duo to get fans excited for what's to come in the new season. Their insights and analysis will surely make every race even more enjoyable for viewers.

Momentum and New Faces

Marty and Ryan discuss the momentum that NASCAR has gained from the 'Full Speed' documentary. The series introduced many characters to a wider audience and generated interest in the sport. One driver who benefitted from the documentary is Denny Hamlin, who will be a strong contender at Daytona.

The conversation also highlights the changing of the guard in NASCAR, with a new generation of drivers taking the spotlight. The older veterans have retired or taken on different roles, making way for young talents like Ryan Blaney to shine. This fresh batch of drivers has the potential to grow the sport and connect with fans on a deeper level.

Challenges and Excitement Ahead

Marty and Ryan discuss the challenges that drivers will face in the upcoming season. With the current format, winning races and championships is no easy feat. The Daytona 500, in particular, has not produced a champion since Jimmie Johnson in 2013. This difficulty adds excitement and unpredictability to the races.

Both hosts also express their enthusiasm for the changes NASCAR has been making to the schedule. Moving dates around, reintroducing tracks like North Wilkesboro, and exploring new locations keep the sport fresh and keep teams on their toes. Additionally, they discuss Jimmie Johnson's move to Toyota and the potential impact it may have on his new team, Legacy Motor Club.
