NASCAR's best won't have to drive far for work this week after the Daytona 500 opened up the season last week in Daytona Florida. The scene is still set in Daytona International Speedway but the racing moves to the Daytona Road Course which presents many different obstacles. There are 14 turns on both front and back straight aways.
It's not like this is a regular occurance by any means for the sport though. This is only the second time that there has been a trip to the Daytona Road Course. You don't have to go far back into the history books to see when the last time the Cup Series was here as NASCAR raced here for the first time in 2020 and Chase Elliott won that race. That damn near makes him the automatic favorite in this one with so little history. It doesn't hurt that five of his 11 Cup Series wins are on road courses. This race at Daytona is just the one of seven road courses slated for the 2021 season.
