For the second year in a row, Chase Elliott is on pole for the Daytona 500. Elliott became the youngest pole-sitter in Daytona 500 history in 2016 at 20 years old, and he’ll start first again on Feb. 26. Dale Earnhardt Jr. locked in the second spot, and the other cars will race for starting positions on Thursday.
In case you missed it on Saturday night, rain decided that it wasn’t quite time to start the NASCAR season. The Advance Auto Parts Clash exhibition race for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series had to be moved to Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET on Fox Sports 1. They’ll qualify for the Daytona 500 afterward.
