Can I get a Dale Yeah?!
2) The Rookies
Will Chase Elliott get his first win? How will Bubba Wallace do? Will they all wreck? I can't wait to watch!
3) The History
Daytona is almost at it's 60 year mark, so many greats have won there, such as, Junior Johnson, Richard Petty, Cale Yarbrough, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. The list of legends just go on and on.
If you like those kind of races, Daytona is known for "the big one" along with Talladega.
5) To Watch Danica Patrick Before She Retires
