Rolex24 From the SuperStretch into Bus Stop Chicane Night Daytona 2013 [04:07]
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The chicane, located near the end of the Superstretch, traditionally produces many of the most dramatic moments of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, America's most prestigious sports car race and the kick-off event to the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16. During the first day of the 49th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on Saturday, Jan. 29, sports car fans will have a great place to view all of the action in the chicane from atop the 46-foot high Budweiser Party Porch. Located across from the chicane on the Superstretch, the 20000-square foot Budweiser Party Porch platform will be open to fans for the first time during the sports car race and provide a prime viewing spot of the drivers navigating their way through one of the tricky portions of the 3.56-mile road course. "The Budweiser Party Porch is going to be a great spot to enjoy all the drama of the Rolex 24 At Daytona," track President Joie Chitwood III said. "Entering and exiting the chicane has always been one of the more challenging areas on the track and the Budweiser Party Porch will now provide a great vantage point for fans." The Budweiser Party Porch, which will be open on Saturday, Jan. 29 between noon and midnight, will be available to ticket holders with garage pass upgrades. Garage access will be available for purchase at the Sprint FANZONE ticket booth and trams will provide transportation from the Sprint FANZONE to the Budweiser Party Porch. For ...

Teen Horse Racing Jockey Angel Suarez - Incredible Rookie Year [01:14]
At the age of 17, high school sophomore Angel Suarez told his mother he wanted to drop out of school and ride racehorses for a living, shocking his mother who thought that with his good grades he might one day become a doctor. Following his dream, Suarez moved to Bensalem, Pennsylvania in January 2012 after attending a jockey training school in his native Puerto Rico. A year later, Suarez -- who races primarily at Parx and Penn National Racetracks -- has $3.4 million in purse earnings, the most of any apprentice jockey in the country, and has been named one of the three finalists for the prestigious Eclipse Award as Apprentice Jockey of the Year.

I Simply Believed [00:18]
First off, Thanks for 200! It means a lot :) This past year has been crazy. Its been hard. And I'll even admit that at times its been scary. "I beat the statistics because i simply believed" has a lot of meaning to me. Almost a year ago I was told I may never be able to ride again. And if I did I might have to give up jumping. Not only was I told things about riding but I was told Id have to accept the fact that I would probably fail classes and have to drop a class or two. I refused to believe that. I refuesd to let them tell me how it was going to be. I missed two months of school and when I finally did get to go back i did half days for a month. I busted my ass to get my grades back up before school, during lunch, and after school, but i did it and ended with the best grades I had all year. I did everything I had to to be able to ride again and have been showing 3ft jumpers all season. Because even though a lot of people doughted me including doctors and my dad, I never doughted myself. "I simply believed." Sometimes thats all you have to do is believe in yoursewlf and you'll be able to get through anything. So many people are going through hell and we never realize it because we get so caught up in our own little worlds. We get caught up in our own problems that we fail to realize that life could be so much worse. Theres people our age that don't have anything, that cant do anything onw their own because of medical problems and yet we complain about these small things ...
