Pre Daytona 500 - I'm tiring of this issue

From a barstool at Sugar Mountain Resort in Boone, NC...

Tires? Already? First race of the year? We saw early-run blistering and blowouts in the twins. And today, Ryan Newman loses one (and a 2nd race car this week) and collected himself and car-owner/bossman Smoke in the process. Wiped out both cars, and the two drivers will turn to backup cars for the 500.

Man oh man, I hope we aren't going to see a repeat of the too-often-seen tire failing scenario from 2008. And what I REALLY hope we don't see is a repeat of last year's Brickyard 400 where tires were failing every 8-10 laps.
