When Gresham reached out to fellow NASCAR drivers for tips on racing on dirt, he quickly realized acquiring such skill can only be learned on the track.

He got his first taste of dirt racing in January testing in a Late Model at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C. A month later, he drove at Volusia Speedway Park in nearby Barberville, Florida. He also has tested his Eddie Sharp Racing truck at Wythe Raceway in Wytheville, Va. Jared Landers, who is ranked seventh nationally in the current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, will be Gresham's teammate at Eldora Speedway. They worked together during the test at Wythe.-Eddie Sharp Racing

Denny Hamlin’s victory in last year’s Daytona 500 was one of eight top-10s that he has scored in the last 12 plate races.

That streak dates back to his second-place finish in the 2014 Daytona 500 and it kicked off a string of five consecutive results of sixth or better at Daytona International Speedway. That streak was broken last July when he finished 17th after starting ninth.

Clint Bowyer has waited two years to take over the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing ride and it was worth it; he finished second in his Can-Am Duel in Daytona.

Bowyer has been solid in modest equipment on plate tracks. He has won in great equipment like he will wheel this weekend. Since he has struggled in recent seasons, he could provide a great differentiation for one’s roster.

Jimmie Johnson was clipped by David Ragan while they were racing for a top-five position and his No. 48 got pinched into Ryan Blaney.

Johnson wrecked twice in the Advance Auto Parts Clash. The team tightened him up some, but Johnson complained of getting squirrely when drivers tried to side-draft him in his qualification race. Johnson has not had a lot of recent success on plate tracks and it does not appear this weekend will improve his record. Johnson ultimately finished 13th, but he was challenging for sixth on the final lap.

Jamie McMurray helped push Chase Elliott to his Can-Am Duel in Daytona victory and finished second in the process.

McMurray has had a lot of success on this track, but he has been crash prone in recent years. Since winning the 2010 Daytona 500 he has sustained damage in 11 of 13 races on this track. His aggression Thursday night suggests the same thing could happen again this year as 500 miles is a lot longer than the 150 he faced in the Duel

Denny Hamlin was penalized for a pit road infraction during the lap-25 competition caution and was forced to start at the tail-end of the longest line. He picked his way to the front in the final segment and won the second Can-Am Duel in Daytona.

Hamlin was last year’s winner of the 500 and he has quietly become one of the best drivers on this track type. He is moderately priced in most salary cap games and in the same group as Earnhardt in other contests. He makes a great differentiator.

Chase Elliott led the field to green in the first Can-Am Duel at Daytona and led them to the checkers as well to win.

Elliott already had the pole for the Daytona 500 with his fastest lap in qualification last Sunday. He did not need to take any risks, but wanted the victory and the 10 championship points that went along with it. Elliott led much of the final segment of the race and applied a lesson learned from Brad Keselowski by leading first one line then the other in the draft.

Chase Briscoe (No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150) was fastest in the lone practice session for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Next Era Energy Resources 250 at Florida's Daytona Int'l Speedway.

The 192.980 mph lap was the fastest of the 42 trucks out on the track for the practice leading up to Friday night’s event. Two practices were scheduled for Thursday but, due to rain, NASCAR opted to run one practice on Thursday. No. 24 Scott Lagasse Jr., No. 13 Cody Coughlin, No. 27 Ben Rhodes and No. 17 Timothy Peters are the rest of the top five on the speed chart.
