DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Snow made NASCAR drivers Ryan Newman and Martin Truex Jr. no-shows at Daytona 500 media day.
Newman and Truex missed the kickoff to Speedweeks on Thursday because a winter storm and icy conditions affected travel in the South and East.
Newman posted a message on his Twitter page that included a photo of his snow-covered farm and several buffalo: ''Stuck in NC. Headed out to check on Farm. Buffalo are happy this am.''
The weather caused several other NASCAR drivers to alter travel plans to Daytona International Speedway.
David Gilliland and David Ragan were supposed to fly down Thursday morning, but instead of gambling on being able to get to the airport and take off without any delays, opted to drive Wednesday. They got on the road before the heavy stuff wreaked havoc on roadways.
