Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will start the 2020 Daytona 500 from the pole

DAYTONA BEACH - Driving for a new team - JYG Daugherty Racing - and a new manufacturer - Chevrolet, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. sped to the pole position for Sunday's 62nd Daytona 500 with a speed of 194.582 miles per hour.

The second fastest to lock in the front row, for the third consecutive time, was Alex Bowman in the No. 88 Chevrolet of Hendrick Motorsports. The starting order for the rest of the 40-car field will be set by a pair of qualifying races Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.

Just missing the front row were another pair of Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolets, with two-time Daytona 500 pole victor Chase Elliott (46.319/194.305) and seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson (46.419/193.886) timing in third- and fourth-fastest, respectively. Stenhouse will start on the pole in one of the Duals and Bowman in the other. "You can't make it go any faster".

Defending race victor Denny Hamlin was the fastest Toyota qualifier in fifth, followed by teammate Kyle Busch and Aric Almirola, who led the Ford contingent with the seventh-quickest lap of the day.

Billie Eilish has released " No Time To Die ", the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie of the same name. A third said: "Well, I love those 13 seconds, beautiful". "/ Was I reckless to help?" asks Eilish in the bridge.

"For me, this is a learning experience. has always been a bucket list category for me to come see these cars, be around these open for me and who knows what opportunity might come along in IndyCar, sports cars or back to my off-road roots". Obviously we wanted the pole, and just barely missed it there.

Stenhouse joined JTG in the offseason after seven seasons with Roush Fenway Racing. Set to retire at the end of a long and successful stock vehicle career at the end of 2020, the Californian took a detour from pre-Daytona 500 activities to visit the Texas road course, continuing to gather intel from friends in a paddock that holds considerable interest for the 44-year-old. But there were a little bit of nerves even though I have a couple of Cup starts. "I know when this one is".

"I think he's the kind of guy that would keep you calmed down", Keslowski said of McConaughey. "We made it, we're here and I'm going to have a b--' time". "I have to go out there Thursday and get it done".
