Alex Bowman captures pole for NASCAR season-opening Daytona 500

As Long as Kyle Larson's 42 Car Is on the Track, He's Got a Fighting Chance to Win

"I would say that the hard part was getting to this point, being in this vehicle", said Byron, whose Hendrick teammates are seven-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott and Daytona 500 pole-sitter Alex Bowman. Stenhouse is the most recent victor at Daytona when he won his second Super Speedway race in a row during the 2017 Coke Zero 400. Elliott also seeks to win his third consecutive Daytona 500 pole, which would tie him with Fireball Roberts, father Bill Elliott, and Ken Schrader for the most 500 poles in a row.

But Earnhardt retired at the end of last season and the empty seat went to Bowman, who drove 10 races filling in for Earnhardt when Earnhardt was sidelined in 2016 with a concussion.

As a result, fans will probably see looser cars during Sunday's Daytona 500 as the handling won't be as smooth. His lap at 195.644 miles per hour was only a few ticks faster than Denny Hamlin, who will be joining Bowman on the front row for the 60th running of the Great American Race.

Only the front row for next week's Daytona 500 was set Sunday through Daytona's unique qualifying format.

"It was really just to do Daytona and Indy and The Clash wasn't a priority", she said.

Patrick will drive the No. 7 Chevrolet for Premium Motorsports in the Daytona 500 with Tony Eury Jr.as her crew chief. 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. It very well could have an impact on the race as nearly everyone in the field is now accustomed to running the race without many handling issues.

"Then you turn around three months later and you're at the biggest race of the year". Keselowski had the race in control, and Kyle Larson made contact with Jimmie Johnson on the final lap to trigger an accident that allowed Keselowski an easier route to victory lane. "From a performance standpoint, he's someone who can look after me, but also from a comfort standpoint - I don't have to try to win the Daytona 500 with somebody I never met before", she said.

"Just a little nerve-wracking", he said.

"I don't know if we quite figured it out yet". The machine says where you are, and everybody has got to be there.

"I didn't think we would run that fast", Harvick admitted. GoDaddy chose to rejoin Patrick for her final two races, and she reached out to Eury to set up her Daytona ride. She's racing in only the Daytona 500 and then the Indianapolis 500 in May before she retires as a race auto driver.
