We’re back at the Daytona Road Course this weekend, only this time the race is for actual points. The O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 is on Sunday and is a bit longer than the shootout we had last Tuesday in the Busch Clash; exactly double the length to be exact. The starting lineup for this weekend’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 was set by NASCAR’s qualifying formula, which means there are going to be some surprising drivers starting near the front (and near the rear) since we’re coming off of a superspeedway race.
