Earnhardt, in talking to reporters during media day, said winning a championship "would be the icing on the cake of my career".
Entering her fifth season as a NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick is still looking for her first win.
One more step on the pedal, a tick of a faster pit stop, anything that could shaved time off his run and it would have been Truex with a solo seat on the stage like Hamlin at Daytona 500 media day, recalling the victory. I would be outta here. I like to lift weights, and I do strength training several times per week.
With the strategy piece out of the way, let's take a closer at the drivers to target in the first Can-Am Duel qualifying race at Daytona. Anything I can add to it would be icing on the cake.
The team is so dominant that Alex Bowman, who filled in for Dale Earnhardt Jr. past year on a part-time basis, turned down jobs to remain with the team.
"The shot to win an eighth championship, the shot to win more races, honestly I'm just excited to be here and to get going", Johnson explained. "I love what I do, but I love lots of other things and I also love life, and I'm too young to have it be over".
The Daytona 500 has always provided fans with hard-nosed racing and fantastic finishes just like the one we witnessed previous year, when Denny Hamlin edged Martin Truex Jr.to the finish line by 0.010 seconds-the closest margin of victory in the history of the Daytona 500. I went through a similar situation and getting that perspective while away, when I got back into that vehicle I was on fire. "This is the past year of my (contract)". There's a few races I'd like to win.
On Sunday the front row for the Daytona 500 was set when Chase Elliott won the pole and Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the outside pole. All the drivers had a chance to address a variety of topics Wednesday. "When [Earnhardt] said something about having 12 concussions, I'm like, 'I'm sure I've had 12 concussions.' ..."

It seems that Obama and his administration didn't have the stomach to deport enough undocumented immigrants. During her comments Monday, Roberts was more critical of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
He says "unless our strategy is, 'We've got them right where we want them; they don't even know we're here, ' then we might be in a little bit of trouble on this one". His "clean freak" habits started when he was a child, as he would always make sure to put away his toy cars before going to visit his grandmother. I've been coming here ever since I was a kid.
Daytona International Speedway is the ultimate proving ground for NASCAR drivers. If we get it, it'll be one heck of a party.
For the second straight year, Chase Elliot won the pole for the 500.
"We can't sit still. Whatever we missed on, we need to find it".
The Toyota teams have brought a new body style for the season, and Busch said it appeared to work well Sunday during the exhibition Clash at Daytona.
"I don't necessarily want to be the Dale Earnhardt type where it takes 20 years to get it done, but I certainly would say I would try as long as I needed to or as long as I could to get it done". The races are also much shorter, and the field is much smaller.
"We have great notes to fall back on". A driver whose auto goes to the garage after an accident will be required to go to the infield care center.
It means Team Penske is a heavy favorite for Sunday, and eager for the 500 to arrive.
