Stewart says high temperatures put a premium on handling

If the weather forecast is accurate — and from the warming trend on Saturday, it appears to be — handling may be even more of an issue for Sunday's Daytona 500. Sunday's high temperature might reach 85 degrees. "I think the track is going to soak up more heat than it has all week," said two-time Cup champion Tony Stewart. "I think it's going to be even more of a handful. Obviously, it will cool down in the evening a little, and that will help it, but it's going to be the highest track temps we've seen all week at the start of the race. "It's going to make the first third of the race pretty interesting. . . It will definitely be a factor." Cup Scene
