Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gears up for the Daytona 500

Elliott and Earnhardt won the front row in pole qualifying.

The win was the first for Elliott, who is in just his second season in the Monster Energy Series driving for Hendrick Racing.

Race 1 runner-up Jamie McMurray and race 2 victor Hamlin will start behind single-car qualifying winners Elliott and Earnhardt on Sunday.

Waltrip, 53, isn't stopping cold turkey; he hasn't driven a full season since 2009.

But any change that ups the stakes of the Can-Am Duel and potentially makes it more of a must-see event during Speedweeks is worth a shot.

"I know for only two more days people are going to be talking about me and the last one, unless I do it again", Hamlin said. "[Earnhardt] thought I was going one way and I went the other".

"I got some great experience being able to stay out front in those final laps". "I thought we definitely, by choosing four tires, was the right call because my vehicle wasn't quite running or handling the way I thought it should for being at night - so, I wanted that extra grip". "It's high speed all the time and I'm gonna try to pass everyone every time I can, so that part doesn't change for me".

You could never accuse Waltrip of not hustling. Under the new deal, NASCAR's premiere series is now officially called the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. "So to come back this year and win the championship, it would be hard not to hang it up".

Busch was sent into the wall on the 17th lap of the Clash exhibition race at Daytona last weekend.

Bouncing back from a pit-road penalty, Hamlin got a huge push from Austin Dillon to capture Duel 2, passing race dominant driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. with 2 laps to go for the victory.

"I have faced a range of emotion that humans probably aren't created to face, and it all happened within 10 seconds", Waltrip said. "I was just trying to fill a hole".

Earnhardt Jr. speaks to the media on Wednesday. That's hard to think about. I think those guys are fine.

The challenge ahead of this new racing format will be to make viewers tune in while Earnhardt's here and keep them tuned in after he's gone.

"We would rather it be on Sunday, but at the same time it means a lot to me", Elliott said. Everybody has that number, and that was Dale's day.

Hamlin's time - I picked Denny Hamlin to win last year's Chase before it began, and I'm going to stick with him for the 2017 title.

"It just really depends on a lot of different things", Earnhardt said, reflecting on the idea of the 2017 championship.

Chevrolet has won the Daytona 500 23 times, and Ford is runner up with 14 wins. But it was also not without controversy, as rain ended the race after 109 of the scheduled 200 laps. "It gets you whole team back in the rhythm". Keselowski sits atop the odds despite finishing better than 20th just twice in seven career Daytona 500 appearances. But that's just not the way it is. He was not terribly pleased, putting up the 35th fastest time. Elliott led a total of 25 laps including the last 24 in dominating style. When Toyota entered the Cup series in 2007, Michael Waltrip Racing was its lead team. "Tracks that don't chew up the tires, the strategy is a bit simpler".

The 42-year-old said: "I don't really worry too much about it".

NASCAR's most popular driver missed 18 races, half the season, in 2016 because of lingering concussion symptoms that included nausea as well as vision and balance issues. If there was someone that told me or, I would hope any other driver, if you have another wreck, you could have a serious problem, then they would [choose to] be out. I love my race team.
