The Daytona 500 is still 30 days away. However, three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers will be hitting the track at Daytona International Speedway this weekend.

Larson is part of the star-studded Chip Ganassi Racing No. 02 team with Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan and Marino Franchitti. Pretty good company. McMurrary is driving with the Ganassi No. 01 team, which also includes Scott Pruett, Memo Rojas and Sage Karam. 

Allmendinger will be driving the Michael Shank Racing No. 60 car.


Other drivers with NASCAR ties include Max Papis, Boris Said and Andy Lally.
