Bowman, No. 88 on pole

Bowman, No. 88 on pole

Alex Bowman is off to a hot start in the lead-up to the 2018 NASCAR season after being tasked with following in the footsteps of Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's 15-time Most Popular Driver and a seven-time Daytona pole victor. 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.

After winning the pole, Bowman spoke about a dream he once thought would never come true. That's what we're here for. "It's kind of surreal to think about the races we have won and what we've accomplished the last few years", Truex, 37, said.

Denny Hamlin will line up alongside Bowman after recording a speed of 195.092 miles per hour in his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to nab the second starting spot for the "Great American Race". Only the front row was locked in during Sunday's qualifying session, with the remainder of the 40-car field being set at the 150-mile Can-Am Duels races on Thursday. "I think the hard part was getting to that point".

Busch won the playoffs in 2015 for his only championship.

"I was like, 'Man, where was I on that one?' It would have just been a good gamble to use the backup but didn't think of it soon enough and was honestly just really concerned about the work getting done to put the primary auto out there for the 500". "This came out of the blue for me and is a great opportunity for me to win a second Daytona 500".

Byron is beginning his first full season driving the famed No. 24 Chevrolet for Hendrick.

Many spent stints in the NHL - five games here, 10 more there - before turning to a journeyman career in European leagues. After goals from Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway, the Americans took a 2-0 lead into the third period.

"This has been so much fun for me", Hendrick said.

"So, we would have surely found a way to put something together, but it just didn't come together fast enough". Bowman raced just three times on the national level last season, two Xfinity Series races and one in the Truck Series, and filled his time using a simulator as he waited for Earnhardt to retire.

"I don't know if we quite figured it out yet". He got his assignments turned in early before traveling to Daytona International Speedway for pole qualifying.

We'll see if the change produces a better product, but it seems like it will be beneficial to most drivers.

He easily could have won last year's final race but displayed veteran class when he laid off and let Kyle Busch and Truex Jr. race for the cup. She will re-connect with long-time sponsor GoDaddy for the race.

"Everything is the same as it was before as far as showing up to Daytona without having driven since Homestead, so that is no different", she said.
