“Everything is okay if your car drives good, I think come Thursday, that is the main focus,” Elliott said. “It’s a great honor to be on the pole and a great achievement for our team and the efforts they put in throughout the off-season, but there is a lot of opportunity to showcase their efforts throughout the season. First being Thursday and most importantly next Sunday.”

As a result, Elliott will start fifth in Thursday night’s Duel No. 2, which will officially set the lineup for the 60th running of the Daytona 500.

Elliott’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate Alex Bowman captured the pole for “The Great American Race.” This marks the fourth consecutive year a Hendrick Motorsports driver will lead field to the green flag.
