Steve Parks 13th. at Daytona
I was pleasently surprised to see Parks finishing 13th. in the Daytona race.
For those who might not remember Steve, he was picked by Dale Earnhardt back in '96 to race, starting w/the (then) Busch series.
Then Steve was in a wreck during a Busch race in '01 that caused him to lose a lot of ground, and he was not ever quite the same after suffering that concussion.
He has continued to race, just not at the top level. Mainly in the Craftsman truck series.
The fact that the field was thinned considerably due to several "big ones" probably helped him to have such a good finish- but anyone who follows NASCAR at all knows a top twenty finish at ANY race, regardless of the circumstances, is a good finish.
Congrats to him and his team and his fans.
