59th Annual Daytona 500 Entry List

Change is in the air as we enter the final stretch of the off-season. Today NASCAR released the Entry List for the 59th Annual Daytona 500 and Its gotta get you pumped and ready for the new season as we enter the season of change. New format, new rules, new aero package, and new drivers in new places. One thing that stays the same though is how important this race is to everyone in the garage and to the people in the Media Center. The entry list for the Daytona 500 this season has some of the biggest names in the sport with 7-Time Champion starting his drive for his record breaking 8th Championship while Dale Earnhardt Jr. returns to the series after stepping out of the car after Kentucky with concussion issues. Daniel Suarez, Ty Dillon, and Erik Jones steps up from the Xfinity Series and begin their quest for Rookie Of The Year Honors. There is currently 42 cars on the entry list which means two drivers dreams of racing in the Daytona 500 will be dashed a week early with Qualifying being on Sunday February 19th on Fox starting at 3:10 pm/ET.
