‘Countdown to Daytona,’ your exclusive inside-track to the big race, will be live from Daytona International Speedway at 1:00pm ET with more than a dozen drivers answering questions and having fun with our NASCAR broadcasters at Victory Lane.

“Last year, the drivers really enjoyed getting to let loose a little bit and have some fun for their fans,” added Lucas. “We’re going to have even more fun this year!
