DiBenedetto will arrive in Darlington with a tribute to the Wood Brothers’ 1963 Ford Galaxie. That’s the car Tiny Lund won the 1963 Daytona 500 with. It’s also the car Glen Wood won his final Cup Series race in at Bowman Gray Stadium on July 13, 1963.
With sponsorship from Oreo, the JR Motorsports driver will honor his team owner, Dale Earnhardt Jr., with driving the scheme Earnhardt drove to a win in the 2002 Xfinity Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway.
Here is your 2020 @TooToughToTame throwback from @BMSRaceTeam. We want to honor the people’s champion Janet Guthrie. She is a pioneer and fought the odds in a male dominated sport becoming the first female to qualify for the Daytona 500 and Indy 500! We hope to make you proud! pic.twitter.com/4JMfYNZMrk
Xfinity – Drydene 200 (12:30 p.m. ET Saturday on NBCSN)
Xfinity – Drydene 200 (1 p.m. ET Saturday on NBCSN)
Thirty-six cars are entered for both races.
Daniel Hemric will drive the No. 8 for JR Motorsports on Saturday. Jeb Burton will drive the car in Sunday’s race. There are no other driver changes in the entry lists for Dover from Saturday to Sunday.
David Starr is listed for both races in the No. 07 car for SS Green Light Racing.
Josh Bilicki will go to the rear because of a driver change (Joey Gase drove the car Saturday) and a transmission change.
Reddick was to have started third. Almirola was to have started fifth.
Once the cars go to the rear, the cars in those lanes will move up. With first, third and fifth (spots on the inside row), it means William Byron, who is seventh on the lineup, will move up to the front row and start next to Clint Bowyer.
