Projected lineup for Daytona 500

"They're just obnoxious", Waltrip said of the roar. "You have meetings and media day and it's a insane couple of weeks in many ways".

Earnhardt starts second in the first NASCAR race under the Monster Energy sponsorship banner and the Daytona 500 is the first under the new format that divides the race into segments.

While he is still looking for a Daytona 500 win, Busch is no stranger to winning at plate tracks. But if I win the championship, I'd have to consider going out on top.

"So we're light years ahead of that".

"That limited us for a while", she said.

NASCAR has made a series of changes for the 2017 season ranging from a new top-series sponsor to how the cars are set up to race.

Truex gets another chance Sunday in the No. 78 Toyota to turn last year's finish into a footnote of his career and not a defining moment.

Next gimmick (or rule change): NASCAR loves to tweak the playoffs.

"And I think you'll see our presence build somewhat as the races go". Needless to say, Elliott is likely to get out of harm's way if the racing gets too wild. "Look, you don't want to be someone who trips over your press clippings".

"So we'll just go racing and see what happens", Johnson said. The feeling doesn't last forever.

"You know, I've always wanted to win a championship so badly".

Jamie McMurray, the 2010 Daytona 500 victor, said he wasn't surprised by the controversy because of the divided opinions many have in politics.

"I just had a lot of steam under the hood, really", said Elliott, who won his first race in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series auto. By all means, it's one of the things that makes me the most frustrated, but it also makes me the happiest. "It's Mario Andretti. It's something I will also cherish and keep".

The formation of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series comes at a time of slumping NASCAR television ratings and attendance.

In 2016, Smith commanded the No. 7 Chevrolet for Tommy Baldwin Racing and competing in 35 races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The two-time Daytona 500 victor will make his 30th and what he expects to be his final NASCAR start in "The Great American Race" on Sunday.

Trying to even out the field, NASCAR has limited the amount of time on the track, keeping the big teams from spending time and money to gain an advantage over the field. Also, it helps knock some of the rust off after sitting around for three months. "We've obviously got to get through the Duels, first. You've got to quit sometime". As a result of being the fastest two open cars during Daytona 500 qualifying, Brendan Gaughan and Elliott Sadler already earned spots in The Great American Race. It's the way Logano ultimately won the race.

"If I did it before, I guess it is possible", Johnson said. "It would be great and I think we have a auto that can do it". "The last couple of years we have grown our program and are ready to take the next step. I'd hate to race against him". As you go along, obviously previous year going the way it did, having such a great beginning of Speedweeks, qualifying well, and getting to the XFINITY race and running good in it, things were just going really good, and as the Sunday rolled around, that just kind of went to prove how fast things can go south. "I put a piece of fabric in every single spot to avoid scratching the cars", he tells USA Today.

"NASCAR and Monster Energy need to rethink these uniforms for the Monster Energy Girls if they don't want naughty jokes", one wrote. They get dealt a hard hand. "I just talked to him on the phone, and he's got to be thrilled with having his cars up front".
