The midpoint of the NASCAR season is here trying as always to deliver a white-knuckled thrill fest on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway.

The was Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 2015.

Chase Elliott turned a lap of 194.045 mph to win the pole at Daytona International Speedway and give sagging Chevrolet a much-needed boost. Elliott had won two poles at the Daytona 500.
