NASCAR Can-Am starting lineups at Daytona

The Can-Am races is a special event for qualifying to the Daytona 500 race. We already knows that Chase Elliott earned Sunday’s qualifying pole and that Matt Kenseth will join him at front row as a runner-up. These two  drivers will lead one Duel race each. The new charter system makes 36 drivers eligible for Daytona 500. Two of the remaining eight open teams are also set for Daytona 500 due to single car qualification (Ryan Blaney and Matt DiBenedetto). That gives the rest of the six open teams a chance to “Duel” their way into the “great American race”.

“The Duels” are normally exciting races to watch. Some teams are more desperate then others which means taking a considerably more risk. We all know that “the big one” is lurking around the corner. Be safe drivers! (JS)
