NASCAR tosses car chiefs for 3 drivers before Daytona 500

Hendrick's Byron wins Daytona 500 pole

Hendrick's Byron wins Daytona 500 pole

Just seven pole sitters have won the Daytona 500.

The 21-year-old Byron and 25-year-old teammate Alex Bowman locked in the front row for "The Great American Race" during qualifying laps Sunday at Daytona International Speedway.

There was about a 10-minute delay for the first red flag as they went back to racing.

Jimmie Johnson triggered a wreck that wiped out almost the entire field at Daytona and zipped to the lead to win the rain-shortened exhibition Clash on Sunday.

It didn't take long to find success.

Here is how Menard responded to being wrecked out of the race that he had dominated up until that point. He still believes that with hard work and the right people, a team can step back and admire a glistening race vehicle, confident that girl is a victor. "We kind of got a warm-up last week when we tested in Vegas, so that was big for our communication and helped us tremendously". "The odds of making the Daytona 500 did not seem reasonable enough to stretch our resources, so the team feels that our assets can best be put towards a future race".

Austin Dillon, the defending Daytona 500 champion said he was "really disappointed" in how everyone kept moving up against the wall. "Cars drove well, communication has been well". "We continued with the Wednesday, Feb. 6, press conference at the NASCAR Hall of Fame with great optimism about our program coming together in time to make it to Daytona International Speedway. Wish we could have got the pole, but nonetheless, it was a great effort by our team, and everything has been smooth". Not every Cup series driver is eligible to compete in the Clash, though. Venturini Motorsports signed him to a five-race ARCA deal, with Saturday's opening event first on the schedule.

With this in mind, Meendering knows the HMS team is still a tight group of talent. "He got in July here a year ago and that's unfortunate that he just did it again". So Johnson and Knaus remain close as they go through this transition together.

"I think everybody at Hendrick Motorsports, not just the No. 48 team, has worked really hard over the offseason, and I think some of it showed today". For Chad Knaus, this veteran crew chief knows the importance of starting a new season (and a new relationship) with field-leading speed.

"The track hasn't aged enough, grip seems decent still, that I don't see us spreading out enough to race like we used to here", Busch said. "I'm proud that we were able to make the bottom work at least a little bit, but it's just tough sledding down there".
