The checkered flag is ready to drop for the start of the “The Great American Race” the Daytona 500 this Sunday.

NASCAR Hall-of-Fame driver Rusty Wallace who drove the Fort #2 Miller Lite car will joined the South Florida Morning Show tomorrow this morning to talk about the field of young new drivers.

Alex Bowman is on the pole for the season-opening race and fellow Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron is set to make his Cup series debut.

Kurt Busch will try to defend his Daytona 500 championship, and Martin Truex Jr. opens defense of his 2017 series title.

Darrell Wallace Jr. will make history as the first black driver since 1969 to start the Daytona 500.

Danica Patrick is still around, at least for one more race. She’ll make her final NASCAR start as part of the ”Danica Double” that has her ending her career back in open-wheel racing at the Indianapolis 500.
