Logano wins Clash; Elliott, Earnhardt capture 500 front row

NASCAR fans claimed the girls were dressed inappropriately and needed to wear more clothes

As most of the rest of the drivers set to race in the February 26 Daytona 500 undertook a four-hour practice session as soon as possible Saturday morning, NASCAR's most popular driver waited in his garage bay, watching his Hendrick Motorsports crew make final preparations for his No. 88 Chevrolet.

The Georgia native and son of former NASCAR driver Bill Elliot had the fastest lap of 46.663 miles per hour.

Chase Elliott won pole position at the Daytona 500 for the second consecutive year on Sunday.

88 Chevrolet to Alex Bowman and Jeff Gordon for the second half of last season after the disorientation he felt weeks after a July race at Kentucky stemmed not from allergies as he expected but a concussion suffered three races earlier at MI.

"I didn't care about racing", he said in the interview he did alongside his new wife, Amy.

A number of Las Vegas casino properties are getting in the NASCAR spirit by hosting Daytona 500 viewing parties for fans on Sunday. If there were not - if he made the decisions that were needed in order to put him in position to win without thinking twice about them, he may well have removed the last vestiges of the concussion symptoms that sidelined him for most of the second half of last season.

For the first time, NASCAR is using its own staff of physicians at every race, instead of local doctors. He spun in the Clash At Daytona earlier that Day and Dale Jr. was in the Fox Broadcast Booth when it happened so there could be something else to think about.

"We certainly got a glimpse into what that side of life would be like, and I'm going to tell you, it's a lot less stress", Earnhardt said.

The on-track product for the stock vehicle series officially reports for work Friday at Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the February 26 season-opening "Great American Race". The remainder of the field will be set Thursday night with the Can-Am Duels.

After 42 drivers had a scheduled turn, the 12 fastest advanced to the second round.

The last pole victor to win the Daytona 500 was Dale Jarrett in 2000. Well we Do have at least 2 storylines to follow in Next Sunday's Daytona 500.

NASCAR hopes it's off to a good start with Daniel Suarez, the only non-American in the Monster Energy Cup Series who has become a sensation in his native Mexico. He said the race will be his last in NASCAR. It can be seen on TSN, which will announce this week that it once again will show all NASCAR Monster Energy Cup races as well as all NASCAR Xfinity Series races in 2017.
