Denny Hamlin: Qualifies on the Outside Pole for Daytona 500

Denny Hamlin: Qualifies on the Outside Pole for Daytona 500

Kyle Larson made contact with Jimmie Johnson on the final lap to trigger an accident that allowed Keselowski an easier route to victory lane. "On top of that, I hope that it's one of those things where they know I was there and had a great race and had a lot of fun".

And in a league of his own stand Joey Logano, who is just 27 but has a decade of Cup racing experience on his resume.

"Our lives in racing go so fast".

As for whether Busch can repeat next weekend and win the 60th Daytona 500? "You need one to break through". He put little-known, 21-year-old Gordon in his No. 24 Chevrolet in 1993. She just loves to race, to contend, to win.

"Chase brings the kind of intangibles that make him the total package as a driver", Hendrick said.

Danica took the normal route of becoming a race auto driver by starting out in karting at age 10.

Elliott is one of those drivers of few words, but he was ecstatic to get the ride.

"Just a little nerve-wracking", he said. "I mean, obviously, I was in 38 of them or 37 or sometimes 36 [in a season], but I'm sure I will watch some of it when it's somewhat convenient or when it's a big one". In the inaugural Daytona 500 that year, Johnny Beauchamp was initially declared the victor following a photo finish, but a three-day review confirmed Lee Petty had won.

Over the 2016-17 seasons, Byron, 20, won 11 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series races.

Kenseth, too, was a victim of the youth movement. Denny Hamlin finished second after turning a lap at 195.092, and the rest of the field will be determined by Thursday's Can-Am Duels.

But considering how the rest of Busch's season went in 2017 - Daytona was his only win of the year, and he was one of the first four playoff drivers eliminated - he nearly has to have that opinion. No driver has ever done that.

This isn't a list of the greatest drivers, though; this is a list of the greatest drivers on the greatest track in NASCAR.

Suarez was planning to defend that crown in 2017 until Carl Edwards stunned the racing community by leaving the sport only weeks before Speedweeks.

Now, let's have a look at the top 10.

Unfortunately for them, I don't think there's any way that happens. "Definitely NASCAR is doing a really, really good job bringing new young talent". And Dale Jarrett crew member Brad Parrott adds, "I feel like he's right here with us today". This time, it has a new full-time driver in a new Camaro ZL1. Four open teams are also in the field: David Gilliland, driving RBR Enterprises' No. 92 with the hope of running his first Cup race since 2016, Brendan Gaughan, who returns to Beard Motorsports after running the Cup plate races with the team in 2017, D.J. Scott won a Cup race in 1964. On Saturday, however, Patrick, 35, was businesslike and frank in addressing her final NASCAR start. He took the famed No. 21 Ford to victory at Pocono past year, the team's first win since 2011.
