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.

When the Camping World Truck Series takes to Daytona International Speedway, there are going to be some trucks fans won’t recognize. One of those will be the No. 83 Chevrolet.

It’s because the truck is owned by a new team, Copp Motorsports, put together by third generation racer and long-time tire changer DJ Copp. Planning to run the full schedule in 2017, the team will debut at Daytona with Todd Peck behind the wheel. Peck has made 20 career Camping World Truck Series starts in his career, scoring a career-best finish of 18th at Phoenix International Raceway in 2012. He made three starts last year with SS Green Light Racing, with a best finish of 21st at Pocono Raceway. Copp was able to put the effort together after acquiring assets from the former Contreras Motorsports team that raced the No. 71 truck in 2016.-popularspeed.com

Christopher Bell (No. 4 JBL Toyota Tundra) begins his second full-time season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) on Friday night at Daytona.

He put his name on the NASCAR map with a victory on the dirt at famed Eldora Speedway in just his third series start in July of 2015 and earned his first win on pavement last June at Gateway Motorsports Park. That victory at Gateway earned him a spot in the Inaugural Truck Series Chase and his consistent finishes throughout the elimination-style playoff format landed him a spot in the Championship Four at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway. He posted an eighth-place finish in the series finale, earning him third-place in the championship standings. With 30 career Truck starts already under his belt, Bell is hoping to parlay his experience into more wins in 2017. To help him achieve that goal, he will be paired with crew chief, Ryan "Rudy" Fugle this year.-KBM
