0-for-190. Did Danica have a chance in NASCAR?
"I had 20 years on her when she started in a stock car ... You are never going to make up that ground." Danica Patrick never really broke through in NASCAR. The question is whether it was even possible.

Wood Brothers team owner Eddie Wood talking about nearly running out of fuel on his way to Daytona. "You always want to be full of gas...unless you're on fire."
Darrell Wallace Jr. and Daniel Suarez posted the top speed in the final Daytona 500 practice Saturday. There were 15 drivers who sat out the final practice in order to keep from suffering any damage in practice.

Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, AJ Allmendinger and Gray Gaulding will have to serve 15-minute penalties at the end of the 50-minute NASCAR Cup practice today at Daytona because they failed prequalifying inspection twice Sunday.

NASCAR ejected three Xfinity Series crew members for at-track inspection issues in qualifying tech yesterday. Richard Childress Racing crew chief Nick Harrison as well as his car chief were ejected for the Austin Dillon car having rear suspension violations.

Neither will attempt to qualify for the race today, although both could get in on owner points and Dillon could get in with a past champion's provisonal. Any additional penalties will be determined next week.
After Danica departs, who's got next in NASCAR?

The 41-year-old driver, who sat on the pole in 2007 and finished third in 2011, has not competed in the event since 2015 to focus on building a late model team to help develop his son, Todd. Gilliland, who drove a Kyle Busch Motorsports truck Friday night, will drive for Ricky Benton Racing in the Daytona 500: "It will probably be my last one. … We're focusing on our [racing] business and growing it. You drive something like this [truck], it spoils you. Opportunities for a 41-year-old guy to drive that [good] stuff are few and far between."
