Chipper Jones named honorary race official for Daytona 500

Chipper Jones named honorary race official for Daytona 500

Danica Patrick will drive this GoDaddy-sponsored Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at the Daytona 500, which is set to be her last NASCAR race.

Junior is being replaced by 24-year-old Alex Bowman in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 auto, and all Bowman did was win the pole for Sunday's 500. He marveled that both he and his team could be so routinely dominant and then back it all up when it mattered most as Joe Gibbs Racing's Kyle Busch (Truex's technical alliance teammate) threatened to pass before the checkered flag waved at Homestead. "This is the one you worked your whole life for". "I feel like I separate this from the rest of the season and just come here to win and see what we can do". It has impacted auto counts, and one has to wonder at the next races will NASCAR be looking at less than a full field? Check out the final standings from last season.

"Serving as the honorary pace-car driver will be a truly unique and exciting experience", Manning said in a news release. Qualify for the race, run a handful of laps and park the vehicle for the day? "Everybody that shaped and molded you as a racer from local guys back home that I learned from".




Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage has been involved in NASCAR for more than 35 seasons. That said, we were really slow by ourselves. Then again, with everyone in the Cup Series garage needing a dry run to get accustomed to new ride height rules and five-man pit stops, there should still be some sense of intrigue.

Coming off his last-to-first win at the season kickoff Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona, Team Penske driver Brad Keselowski - who is likely to be one of the first people to get behind the wheel of any new vehicle in testing - claimed he didn't know anything about it.

The qualifying races were critical for teams running a limited schedule by providing them the opportunity to race their way into the Daytona 500.
