Georgia Drivers Set for Daytona 500

- Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Busch were the winners of the two qualifying races for the Daytona 500, putting them in the second row for Sunday's season-opening race.

   Georgia drivers Chase Elliott and David Ragan both made it through the first Can-Am Duel without damaging their cars, and secured spots in Sunday's 500 field. Elliott kept his car clean Thursday night so he'll start on the pole after posting the fastest qualifying time over the weekend..

Unadilla's David Ragan starts 29th in the Great American Race with all of his BK Racing teammates in the field.  Peachtree City's Reed Sorenson failed to qualify for the 500 after a 21st place finish in the second Can-Am Duel qualifier.

FOX 5 Sports reporter Cody Chaffins caught up with Elliott and Ragan shortly after they got out of their cars, and talked about looking ahead to the 500.
