Daytona 500 Field Is Set   

The field is set for the 65th running of this Sunday’s Daytona 500. This season has some interesting storylines we will dig into as the season progresses but let’s start with the race. Every season this race is run we have ‘The Big One” which refers to a large wreck where multiple cars are involved, and generally, there is more than one that will shake the field up and add to the excitement. We saw Travis Pastrana and Jimmie Johnson get on the field during qualifying on Wednesday night and saw some hard racing the next night during the “duals” to officially set the field. Who is in? Let’s find out as see who will participate in this season’s race.
