Starting lineup for Advance Auto Parts Clash to be set by blind draw

The starting lineup for the Feb. 11 Advance Auto Parts Clash will be set by a blind draw Feb 10 in the UNOH Fanzone at Daytona International Speedway.

The field will be set by crew chiefs, assisted by young fans, taking part in the blind draw. The draw is part of the “Speedweeks Premiere at Daytona” fan event that will include autograph sessions with Cup drivers and drivers competing against fans in the NASCAR Heat 2 game, among other activities. The event will be held after that day’s ARCA race.
