Like free food? Root for Chase Elliott in NASCAR

Like free food? Root for Chase Elliott in NASCAR

Over of the past three weeks, the INDY 'S resident NASCAR fanatic Mike V. has previewed his favorites to be this year's Cup Champion. Kurt Busch looks to repeat after winning the 2017 Daytona 500.

All eyes will be on Bowman the rest of this week as he leads the rebuilt Hendrick roster into NASCAR's biggest race of the year.

It all changed on February 15, 1998.

FanSided: You have raced at Daytona multiple times. It's a NASCAR moment that has stood the test of time. The kid who never developed a taste for clamming instead followed one of his dad's other passions: Racing.

Menard finished both Daytona races inside the top five last season, with starts of 33rd and 24th.

Childress: He was always confident racing here.

"That's not for a long while, so we just need to do what we can to get this No. 02 Chevrolet near the front on a permanent basis". Hopefully, we can make it another one here on Sunday.

Keselowski will be one of eight drivers dropping to the back of the pack during pace laps for the 500, the penalty for deploying reserve cars after qualifying. I wish there were more people at the race who are involved and intrigued by it and want to be a part of it. He placed 29th at The Glen in 2017, the final vehicle on the lead lap. The white flag waves.

Martin Truex Jr. stands on pit road prior. For those unfamiliar, the plates are put in the engines to reduce horsepower, thus limiting top speeds at Daytona and also at Talladega Superspeedway (those two tracks are 2.5 and 2.66 miles in length, respectively, and speeds would be in excess of 230-240 mph if the plates weren't installed).

Childress: A lot of people had a love/hate relationship with Dale. Gray Gaulding is the team's lone driver in the race. "To see them win the Super Bowl was unbelievable".

"I can't really say that there was one (car) that was put a whole lot more time into than the other, so that's where I say from that standpoint, we have confidence that this vehicle will be as capable as what we raced in the Clash and what we had last night", Wolfe said.

DARRELL WALTRIP: They finally went to the outside.

"I think the big thing with pit stops is even though teams have practiced this, they have not made stops in the heat of battle with four crewmen".

"We came down here to sit on the pole, " Bowman said. Everybody is wanting to congratulate Dale'. "Maybe this year I can turn things around and get a win". ---- Often he chokes back tears during his post-race interviews in Victory Lane. I'm looking forward to leaning on him for his knowledge, but his craft on plate racing too.

"I'm a good pilot because that's what I do", he said. He kept pulling drawers open. He had enough glue on this one penny to glue a dollar's worth of pennies on the dash. Everybody's talking about you and your BFF- as we say- Bubba.

Both the driver of the No. 88 auto and crew chief Greg Ives have been busy working on their strategy for Sunday, which includes staying in front for as long as possible, per's Zack Albert. There's a lot of change going on, especially for what we deal with on the competition side. "We've closed the gap from a year ago and are still the first open team, so lots of positives".

Childress: The lucky penny the little girl gave him is still on the dash today.

Overkill Motorsports, a Jacksonville Beach, Fla. company will serve as a major partner for the season-opening race.

Bowman said it was obvious his Hendrick entry was set to contend for the pole and needs adjustments before it will be strong in race trim.

The back bumpers of the cars were sagging low. More cars equals more story lines equals more potential drama.

In other words, it's still a pretty big deal.

'Anyone can win at Daytona.' It's been said so much that it is nearly a cliche. As if racing at 200 miles per hour around a 2.5 mile tri-oval isn't hard enough, top finishing drivers must avoid all the other aforementioned pitfalls.
