Rearview Mirror: 2017 Daytona 500


A great car but a disappointing result for the NO. 88. Onto Atlanta!

We’re going to be trying something a little different this year. The ‘Rearview Mirror’ is essentially our post race discussion thread that will lead us into our next ‘Race Chat Room’. The ‘Rearview Mirror’ will be posted the morning following every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race. Pretty simple, right? We’ll continue to do what we do best, posting NASCAR news we find around the web and discussing those topics.


‘Can-Am Duels’ Race Chat Room

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chase Elliott

Chase Elliott and Dale Jr. starting 1st and 2nd for the Daytona 500

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be starting first in his Duel race with his 2nd starting spot guaranteed for the Daytona 500 alongside repeat pole sitter Chase Elliott who will take the green flag in the first Duel race.

Weather will be interesting as scattered storms are in the forecast, but the keyword here is “scattered”, it will be interesting whether or not rain will significantly effect these two races. NASCAR VP Steve O’Donnell stated that if the races tonight are rained out then they will take place sometime Friday.

Race coverage begins at 7:00 PM EST on FS1 with the LIVE Leaderboard and NASCAR Drive located at for companion viewing options.

‘Daytona 500 Qualifying’ Race Chat Room



Dale Jr. is looking for his second career Daytona 500 pole today in Kroger Qualifying for the Daytona 500. Jr. was 11th quick in yesterday’s marathon 4 hour qualifying practice session. The Clash made it clear that you need to be close to the front to have a chance at victory. It’ll be key that Dale Jr. qualifies in the top 15 or top 10 for a solid chance at victory on Thursday and Sunday.

Coverage is LIVE on your local FOX Network at 3 PM EST.

‘The Clash at Daytona’ Race Chat Room


Welcome to the first Race Chat Room of 2017!

Alex Bowman will  be driving the NO. 88 for The Clash at Daytona due to his strong efforts in the car last year when Dale Jr. was out with a concussion. The race is a 75 lap event with a competition caution thrown out on lap 50, setting up a 25 lap sprint to the checkered flag.

The green flag drops at approximately 8:10 PM EST this Saturday and can be watched LIVE on FS1.
