6:27 pm
you are racing against 40 other teams. that is what is difficult putting 38 hard weekends in. you get to the end for whatever reason you know maybe you were not good enough the cars did -- cards did not line up. you didn't win. that's what is hard. are you never guaranteed that you will win a race. >> and, that is incredible to think about it. that's why they pull in on sunday. they celebrate so hard because are you never sure when the next one will come around, especially here in daytona, i tell what you. this is one of the races, you know it well. someone new comes out of nowhere and takes the flag. thattic mas the race special. we'll see what happens. >> awesome. >> the important question where is the golden honorary memorial chip carter seat at the track?

6:34 pm
movement, mark it is this poll that's likely to pick that up. >> what does it mean for donald trump? he had momentum. yet he had his bumps and going back and forth with the cope. what does that mean? >> that's part of it. and when the republicans rally behind a candidate, perhaps that can cost donald trump a little bit. you have the dust up with the pope. you combine that with a debate. going after george bush the way he did. those things may have pulled him down. he is approaching a thirst of the electorate. the good news is that if the numbers hold up he would be the winner and heading into the primary. what about sunday night and saturday. money, power and politics, we have another investigation of the va. we have more vets in distress.
