DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - At the Bistro on the infield, patrons drink martinis and dine on jumbo lump blue-crab cakes and artichoke dip.
Seven floors up in nearby Nextel Tower, stock car fans watch races ? either by looking out the window or at large flat-screen televisions ? in luxury suites that sell for up to $200,000The prices and amenities at Daytona International Speedway make it as plain as the Viagra sponsorship logos on Mark Martin's Ford: NASCAR isn't all about Bubba, beer and barbecue anymore.

even more popular that the Kentucky Derby and I like horse racing also, sometimes betting at the track here.

The King of Sports can also be wagered on in Las Vegas just about like the horses. I once bet on a sure thing...Jeff G. and lost, Jr. is better for me. Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
