NASCAR’s Monday Showdown with Xfinity-Daytona 500 Doubleheader after Rainy Weekend

2 min read

The 2024 Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway have hit a snag with uncooperative weather, leading to a unique Monday doubleheader featuring the Xfinity and Cup Series races. The rescheduled event intensifies the anticipation surrounding the 66th Daytona 500.

The Xfinity Series kicks off the Monday action at 11 a.m. ET, showcasing a tight manufacturer battle.

Chevrolet, Ford, and Toyota are the key players, with Toyota gaining attention after notable wins in Thursday’s Duels. Toyota’s performance with the Next Gen car raises questions, and the addition of Legacy Motor Club adds a wildcard element, providing support to top teams while also introducing potential challenges.

The highlight of the day is the 66th Daytona 500 at 4 p.m. ET, where underdog stories and manufacturer battles take center stage.

Toyota aims for its first Daytona 500 win since 2020, with Legacy Motor Club’s entry adding both support and potential discord. The allure of Daytona lies in the potential for surprise winners, with seasoned drivers like Jimmie Johnson and underdogs like Anthony Alfredo and his team Beard Motorsports in the mix.

The race also brings the possibility of young rookies, such as Josh Berry or Zane Smith, making a mark similar to Austin Cindric in 2022. Chartered teams like Rick Ware Racing, Kaulig Racing, and Spire Motorsports contribute to the overall unpredictability.
