Daytona

20 year old Chase Elliott is starting his first full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and has upstaged a field of established stars by taking pole position for the Daytona 500, the series’ biggest event. In doing so, Elliott becomes the youngest ever pole sitter for the 500 and emulates his father who first topped Daytona qualifying in 1985. Not only that, but Elliott has performed against the pressure of replacing NASCAR legend, Jeff Gordon, at Hendrick Motorsports this year. He seemingly isn’t uncomfortable stepping into those very big shoes.
