“We had a good result at Daytona earlier this year. The car handled really well and we were able to run up front. All you can really ask for at a restrictor-plate track is to be there at the end to give yourself a shot at winning it, and we did that in February. We also had a good car at Talladega this year, so it’s been a pretty good year so far for my team on superspeedways.”

Kasey Kahne on racing at Daytona

“Racing during the day versus racing at night. I think the July race is probably more similar to what we see in the Duels in February. I look to some of the same stuff we did during the Duel races this past February, which were good for us. So, we will see how that goes.”

Chase Elliott on the difference between the Daytona 500 and the July race

“This race under the lights is always exciting for the fans. I’m excited Lowe’s opted for the patriotic scheme to highlight our nation’s military for the July 4th holiday weekend. We’ve had no luck the past two times out at Daytona, so our goal is to go out there and finish. Our speedway program is incredible, so I’m sure the guys and gals back at the shop will give me a great Chevy.”

Jimmie Johnson on racing at Daytona

“I have great memories at all of these tracks, Daytona included. I am going to be coming back to these tracks whether I’m driving or not, and I want to continue to be part of the sport. It’s hard for me to put into words what it being my last Cup race at Daytona might feel like because I don’t know what that is going to feel like, and you never say never. Our whole idea on finishing up the season is to try to show our appreciation and express that to our fans and everyone in the industry on making this an incredibly enjoyable ride."
