The NASCAR Nationwide Series will have its season opener on Saturday afternoon from Daytona International Speedway.
Dylan Kwasniewski will lead a field of 40 cars to the green flag for the start of the DRIVE4COPD 300.
The Nationwide Series will complete 120 laps around the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway to make up the 300 miles for Saturday’s race.
Coverage of the DRIVE4COPD 300 will air on ESPN beginning at 1:15 pm ET. The green flag will wave at 1:30 pm ET.
Last year Tony Stewart went to victory lane in this race but it was the accident that sent debris into the grandstands that everyone will remember.
Failing to qualify were David Ragan, Tanner Berryhill, Chris Buescher, Willie Allen, Matt Carter, Matt DiBenedetto, Carl Long, Carlos Contreras and Clay Greenfield.
