Harrison Burton (No. 12 Dex Imaging Toyota)) logged a qualifying lap of 94.179 mph to start on the pole for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season-opening Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

No. 96 Spencer Davis (93.918 mph), No. 44 Dillon Bassett (93.831), No. 40 Sheldon Creed (93.628) and No. 16 Todd Gilliland (93.441) start second through five. Derek Kraus, Ronnie Bassett Jr., Tyler Dippel, Chase Cabre and Reid Wilson round out the top 10 in the lineup for tonight's race.

Tyler Dippel (No. 30 Tycar Ford) was at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series season-opening Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

He put up a 93.669 mph lap in the final practice. No. 12 Harrison Burton, No. 16 Todd Gilliland, No. 99 Derek Kraus and No. 04 Ronnie Bassett Jr. are the rest of the top five and No. 36 Jesse Iwuji was the slowest of the 27 cars completing laps in this final session.
Feb 19 - 5:11 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. clocked in 2/100ths of a second slower than teammate Chase Elliott and will line up on the outside of the front row for next Sunday’s Daytona 500.

Junior was forced to sit out the end of last year with a concussion and his return has been highly anticipated. He inherited his ability to manage the draft from Dale Earnhardt Sr. and should be able to stay in the front pack. If he and Elliott can lock up together, they will be a force.

Tyler Dippel (No. 30 Tycar Ford) was at the top of the speed chart in the final practice leading to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series season-opening Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

He put up a 93.669 mph lap in the final practice. No. 12 Harrison Burton, No. 16 Todd Gilliland, No. 99 Derek Kraus and No. 04 Ronnie Bassett Jr. are the rest of the top five and No. 36 Jesse Iwuji was the slowest of the 27 cars completing laps in this final session.
Feb 19 - 5:04 PM

Chase Elliott posted a lap of 46.663 and has locked down the pole for the Daytona 500.

The front row has the only positions locked into the race regardless of the driver’s finish position in Thursday’s qualification races. Chase Elliott won last year’s pole, but sustained crash damage to finish 37th. He will line up alongside Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the outside pole. Alan Gustafson is the first crew chief since Chase’s uncle Ernie Elliott to win three in a row.
Feb 19 - 4:57 PM

Zane Smith (No. 43 Diamondback Towing Toyota) led the first practice for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series season-opening Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

A lap of 93.862 mph was the quickest of the 27 cars out on the track for the first practice session. No. 4 Ronnie Bassett Jr, No. 44 Dillon Bassett, No. 12 Harrison Burton and No. 40 Sheldon Creed are the rest of the top five on the speed chart. No. 36 Jesse Iwuji was the slowest.

Elliott Sadler posted the second fastest time in qualification for the Daytona 500 among non-chartered entrants and knows he will race next Sunday.

Sadler and Brendan Gaughan locked their cars in based on time, but their starting position will be determined by the qualification races. Sadler is running for Tommy Baldwin Racing in a part time role and a good run in the 500 might open possibilities to run more later in the year.
Feb 19 - 4:05 PM

With a speed of 189.294 mph, Brendan Gaughan was fastest among non-chartered drivers and that means he will race in the Daytona 500 regardless of how he finishes in the qualification races.

This will be Gaughan’s second start in the 500 and his third at Daytona International Speedway. His best result came in February 2004 when he finished 19th for Penske / Jasper.

Kurt Busch was the first driver to retire from the Advance Auto Parts Clash Sunday after contact from Jimmie Johnson.

Johnson got loose on the outside of Busch on lap 16. The No. 48 spun into the side of the 41 and turned it into the wall. The good news is that Busch did not make a mistake, does not need the extra track time for experience, and may have gotten his bad luck behind him.
Feb 19 - 3:06 PM

Daniel Suarez survived his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start to finish eighth in the Advance Auto Parts Clash.

A lot of attention was focused on the rookie in his first attempt at the plate track with the veterans. He made some solid moves and did not trigger an incident—but there is a huge difference between 75 laps and the 200 he will face next Sunday.
Feb 19 - 3:05 PM

Chase Elliott kept his nose clean in Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash and finished seventh.

Elliott did not spend a lot of time at the very front of the pack, so it will be difficult to use his performance in this race to help handicap the Daytona 500. Young Guns are often crash prone, however, and discretion suggests waiting to start him until Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Feb 19 - 3:04 PM

Brad Keselowski made contact with Denny Hamlin on the final lap of the Clash; he survived the incident to finish sixth.

Keselowski had a run on Hamlin entering turn one with a strong push from Joey Logano and Kevin Harvick. Hamlin attempted to block, drove the No. 2 onto the apron, and the two made contact. With no points on the line, drivers will often go for broke. It remains to be seen if they will take this much risk in next week’s Daytona 500.
Feb 19 - 3:04 PM

Kevin Harvick finished fifth in Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts.

Harvick was a much bigger factor than his fifth-place result suggests. He hooked up with fellow Ford drivers (and doesn’t that sound odd after all his years in a Chevrolet) to push Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano to the front. Keselowski’s contact with Denny Hamlin on the last lap broke the lead pack’s momentum, however, and Harvick was unable to capitalize on his new-found track position.
Feb 19 - 1:39 PM

Danica Patrick finished fourth in the Advance Auto Parts Clash.

Patrick stayed out of trouble all afternoon and was not mentioned until the checkered flag waved, but she got a run on the final lap and finished side-by-side-by-side with Kyle Busch and Alex Bowman. That knocked the rust off and makes her a more interesting pick for next week’s Daytona 500.
Feb 19 - 1:15 PM

Kyle Busch finished second to Joey Logano and ahead of Alex Bowman by a bumper in the Advance Auto Parts Clash Sunday night.

Busch was upset with Bowman at the end of the race because he chose to race for second instead of falling in behind the No. 18 to track down the leader. That level of fierce competitiveness is what makes Busch so powerful on restrictor-plate, superspeedways.
