It’s race time again (of course it seems to always be race time), and the 2002 NASCAR Winston Cup Series kicks off as it has for 20-plus years in Daytona, Florida. Turn to NBC at 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 17, and you won’t miss a lap of the action, as a field of 43 drive their way toward the checkered flag at the 44th annual Daytona 500 and bragging rights of first win of the season. — J.E.M.
