Chase Elliott will lead the field to green in Sunday’s (Feb. 21) race on the Daytona International Speedway road course in the NASCAR Cup Series.
Elliott claimed the pole after finishing second in the season opener.
The 2021 owner’s points rankings, weighted 35%, as well as driver’s and owner’s results (25% each) and fastest lap (15%) from the Daytona 500 were used to form the lineup.
The Daytona road course replaces Auto Club Speedway due to COVID-19 restrictions.
