Daly Finally Finds Good Luck, Earns Spot in Daytona 500

Bad luck plagued Conor Daly’s qualifying attempt to earn a spot in the 65th Daytona 500 so much Wednesday night that he booked a plane ticket to Los Angeles for Friday, expecting not to make the show. Daly earned a spot in the NASCAR Cup Series’ biggest race Sunday, Feb. 19 (2:30 p.m. His start in the qualifying race Thursday night – his last chance to make the show – was just as ominous. His The Money Team crew worked on the car during the one pit stop of the race, and Daly was running one lap down, with Hill on the lead lap. Daly, 31, will become the 62nd driver to race in both the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500. He can become in May the 29th driver to compete in both races in the same year.
