DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - February 23, 2007 - A hacker in the Daytona area doesn't like NASCAR. Someone posted a nasty message for Daytona 500 race fans on one of those electronic highway signs.
The message board read: "NASCAR sucks. Go home." The sign was alongside I-four.
Florida Department of Transportation officials say someone with the right kind of keyboard and a password was able to change the sign.
An employee noticed the message late last Saturday night.
But it was switched off by Sunday morning before the big race.
