Bowman Keeps It Conservative In 1st Duel, Other 2 Teammates Not as Lucky

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – For the last four years now, Hendrick Motorsports has won at least one Can Am Duel at the Daytona International Speedway during Speedweeks. They swept the twin 60 lap races in 2015, then saw Dale Earnhardt Jr. win the first duel in 2016. Last year, Chase Elliott won the first duel himself. This year, it was Elliott again, this time winning the second duel. That’s basically a three race win streak though in the opening duel in the last three years right? For the 2018 edition, they…

Blaney/Elliott Wins Thursday Night’s Can-Am Duels

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Everyone wondered what to expect out of Thursday night’s Can Am Duels in Daytona. After last Sunday’s ho-hum Clash, most were worried that Thursday night’s twin races on the high banked Daytona International Speedway would be even worse. If passing was that hard, why would anyone make any extra effort to do so with everyone making the show for Sunday’s 60th annual Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)? While the 2018 Duels weren’t anything like they could have been, they also weren’t entirely boring either.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – For the first time of his career, Chase Elliott will have to race for something in the Can-Am Duels. The Hendrick Motorsports driver has won the last two Daytona 500 poles, the only two times he’s been in the field for the Great American Race too. But, despite making it to the final round of qualifying from a sunny Daytona International Speedway on Sunday afternoon, Elliott didn’t become the first driver in nearly 30 years to win three straight ‘500 poles. But, his teammate Alex Bowman picked…

Austin Dillon To Start On The Pole For Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Qualifying didn’t determine the starting lineup for Sunday’s 40th annual Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona (3 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), a random draw did. As custom for the season opening all-star event at the Daytona International Speedway, the lineup for the race wasn’t based off of speed, rather than luck. This year though, kids were able to draw the starting positions for all 17 drivers, as Austin Dillon will start his No. 3 Chevrolet on the pole as the result of the drawing.
