Legendary figures such as Dale Earnhardt and Tony Stewart stand out with their incredible seven wins apiece, with Earnhardt proving his dominance by clinching victory six times.
Austin Hill of Richard Childress Racing has been a force to be reckoned with in recent Xfinity races at Daytona, emerging victorious in two of the last three events. In an astonishing display of team excellence, JR Motorsports has celebrated seven Xfinity wins, each with a different driver.
Chevrolet has dominated the past 12 Xfinity races, securing an impressive 11 victories. However, Ford broke the streak with a win at Daytona in 2021, proving their mettle on the renowned track. Toyota, on the other hand, has struggled to find success at Daytona since their last Xfinity win in 2013.
While all eyes are on the thrilling races at Daytona, the Craftsman Truck Series teams have headed to the Milwaukee Mile Speedway. Fans eagerly await their turn to shine on Saturday.
The weather gods seem to be in favor of a memorable race day at Daytona. Friday promises mostly sunny skies with a soaring temperature of 87 degrees Fahrenheit.
