Following the Lucas Oil 200, a random draw determined the starting grid for Sunday’s 42nd annual Busch Clash At DAYTONA, a preseason all-star style event for NASCAR Cup Series drivers. Ryan Newman (No. 6 Koch Industries Ford), a former DAYTONA 500 champion, got the pole after his crew chief Scott Graves drew the definitive lucky  number. Brad Keselowski (No. 2 MoneyLion Ford) will start alongside Newman in the 75-lap sprint featuring 18 drivers.

 Earlier Saturday, there were three rounds of NASCAR Cup Series practice – the sole session for the Busch Clash plus the first two practices for the Feb. 16 DAYTONA 500. (Teams typically have different cars for the two events.)
