It’s race day at Daytona International Speedway as NASCAR kicks off its 75th season with its most famous race.
Cup Series drivers will test their skills, strategy and patience as they attempt to make their name in history by winning the Daytona 500 and lifting the Harley J. Earl Trophy on the winning lane.
Alex Bowman, who took pole position in the No. 48 Chevrolet on Wednesday night, will start on the front row for the sixth straight year and will have his Hendrick Motorsports team-mate Kyle Larson by his side. Reigning Cup Series champion, Team Penske’s Joey Logano, will start on row 2 alongside fellow Ford driver Aric Almirola, who drives for Stewart-Haas Racing.
