Fans Ready for Daytona 500

The Daytona 500 is the Super Bowl of racing, but instead of being the finale, it kicks off the racing season, and folks in Eastern Carolina are ready for it.

NASCAR stores around the area have seen a big increase in walk in traffic as people are picking up their pre-season gear. Plus, they say excitement is up this season because there have been between 14 and 18 driver changes on the circuit, and you can watch all the action on Sunday on WITN beginning at 1:30 p.m.
