Drivers slow down for Daytona 500 Media Day

  • Monday’s Sports Minute Devils Shockers in top-25 tussles

Some of the most successful NASCAR racers in history never won the Daytona 500, such as Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin, and Tony Stewart.

They may be teammates but when it comes to winning the race it's every man for himself.

It all changed on February 15, 1998. So we don't want to take any unnecessary risks, but we're gonna race hard and try to win the race. It included a lucky penny and a pit-road processional never before seen in auto racing.

Sunday's Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET, FOX) will also be the first time since 2000 that Earnhardt isn't in the starting lineup.

"Racing was always much more of a passion than as a fisherman", the father said. Hopefully, we can make it another one here on Sunday. "First is that we've got to get into the race". But at the end of the day, I think it taught me a lot of things for this season to know what I need to do and what I need to do in the shop.

A Unique Point of ViewThis weekend's race will feature all the camera angles that racing fans have come to expect, plus a few new views that promise to enhance the broadcast. In 1991, he obliterated a seagull on the backstretch, damaging his radiator.

McReynolds: You knew until you absolutely saw that checkered flag wave that race was not over, that it was not in the books, that it was not a done deal.

With the Daytona 500 under 48 hours away, who are the favorites to win it? But our back-up vehicle was pretty fast.

But an encouraging point from Thursday's Can-Am Duels qualifiers was Team Penske's ability to work together in the aerodynamic draft, a tactic the organization hopes to replicate Sunday, Wolfe said.

"Each year, Daytona Speedweeks allows us to develop, test and deploy more and more technical enhancements than we are able to do at most other events", said Michael Davies, Fox Sports SVP Field & Technical Operations. We didn't get to race.

The three drivers at Team Penske in particular - and all the drivers of Ford Fusions in general - have to be feeling confident after what they've done the last week on the track. He's been in Junior Motorsports in their cars coming up through the ranks. I think there's going be some give and take there.

"Luckily there's so much change going on this year, we feel we have a whole new mousetrap, a whole new set of rules to deal with", Johnson said. Everybody is wanting to congratulate Dale'.

Both Wilsons have been impressed with 22-year-old Chase Elliott's demeanor.

Pole winners made up six of the 36 race winners in 2017. "I just wanted to race him, like, get side by side or something and see". I didn't really like the Eagles because they beat my Falcons. He kept pulling drawers open. It finally went flat and hooked me around and into Aric. He had enough glue on this one penny to glue a dollar's worth of pennies on the dash.

Johnson said a driver's willingness to embrace changes often parallels their success on the track from the year before, which in his case means he's "all in". "I have to get my feet back under me as far as speedway racing goes". We got the penny glued on the dash. Even Danica Patrick (7) moved from hanging out safely at the back of the pack into the top 10. He will start the 60th Daytona 500 from the 21st position.

Gordon: There was not a lot of phenomenal racing, yet people go back and say this is one of the all-time greatest races. More cars equals more story lines equals more potential drama.
