Byron, a Charlotte Country Day graduate, and Bowman edged the other two Hendrick drivers: seven-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and fan favorite Chase Elliott. In the offseason, Byron was paired up with Johnson's longtime crew chief Chad Knaus, while Johnson was paired with Kevin Meendering.
William Byron has won the pole for next week's Daytona 500, giving Hendrick Motorsports the top starting spot for the fifth consecutive year. Alright it's not fully back until next week when the Daytona 500 kicks off the season as far as points-races go, but that won't stop us from playing DFS for the Advance Auto Parts Clash as both Fanduel and DraftKings have contests for it.
The controversy with Johnson's move is that some believe the move was too aggressive, especially with about 15 laps to go.
Johnson topped Sunday's Clash after contact between he and Paul Menard in a battle for the lead resulted in the multi-car crash that collected most of the field in turn three. Johnson said he will gladly take the win. "We're prepared. This is the first step of our process together".

The wreck came 55 laps into the 75-lap event, and the race was called just four laps later.
Busch said team owner Chip Ganassi complained to NASCAR about Johnson driving below the double-yellow line to make the move. NASCAR, though, ruled that Johnson was forced below the yellow line. "Jimmie pulled out I moved down a little bit and the next thing I know is I'm getting turned into the left rear", Menard said.

Menard was positioned to win for Wood Brothers Racing only weeks after the death of team founder Glen Wood.
Menard wasn't happy that he got bumped out of the race.
"I thought we were going to be somewhere in the hunt", Byron said.
Twenty drivers comprised the exhibition race's field, most of whom won a pole during the 2018 season. He was down at least 25 laps in five straight Clashes, and understands just how quickly a race at Daytona can change. I got below him before he blocked him.

"I read an article that Mac Miller's family said that if he don't win, they want me to win". Cardi admitted she was nervous, joking when she took the stage, "The nerves are so bad".
Little did they know what was about to happen before the final red flag that called the race. He finished first in his 40 to 44 age division early Sunday in the Daytona Beach half marathon with a time of 1 hour, 34 minutes, 18.4 seconds.
