  • Daytona 500 start
  • 2015 Daytona 500 green flag

The 2017 season of the American premier stock car competition, renamed to Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series after the energy drink manufacturer which became the naming sponsor, will start soon at Daytona International Speedway. A traditional start of the season would be an exhibition event The Clash at Daytona on February 18. Five days later, the Can-Am Duel qualifying event will follow on the same race track and then, on February 26, the chase for the points will start with the 59th running of Daytona 500.

Compared to 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, there are few changes on the list of full-time drivers. As Tony Stewart retired, Clint Bowyer will take over the #14 Ford of Stewart-Haas Racing. Another veteran who retired is Carl Edwards. His replacement in Joe Gibbs Racing #19 Toyota will be Xfinity Series champion Daniel Suarez.

Suarez’s rival for the Rookie of the Year honors would be Ty Dillon, who will replace Casey Mears in the #13 Germain Racing Chevrolet. The 2015 Truck Series champion Erik Jones will drive this year as a Cup Series rookie in the #77 Furniture Row Toyota.
