NASCAR will start the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series with the Daytona 500 on February 26th. The week leading up to the Daytona will be full of excitement on the track and off. Once again this year our favorite drivers will take the track heading for that Championship at the end of the season in Homestead. But this year things during the race will add up differently for the drivers and teams. It was announced on January 23rd on NASCAR on Fox. And I am so glad I don't have to explain it.
