Clash at Daytona 2020: Live updates, results, highlights from NASCAR Cup Series exhibition race

One of 18 NASCAR Cup Series drivers will enter next week’s Daytona 500 with a 2020 victory already in the books — granted, a win from a non-points race. But the fact that the Busch Clash at Daytona is an exhibition race has never impacted the competitiveness of the racing at the 2.5-mile superspeedway on the Eastern Florida coast.

Sunday’s 2020 Clash at Daytona, set to take the green flag at 3 p.m. ET on FS1, is expected to be no different.

Ryan Newman earned the pole for Sunday’s Clash at Daytona thanks to a random draw. Brad Keselowski will join him on the front row to begin the race. The winner of last year’s rain-shortened Clash at Daytona, Jimmie Johnson, will roll off 16th in his last exhibition race at Daytona. The seven-time Cup Series champion is set to retire at the end of the 2020 season.

SN is tracking live updates and highlights from Sunday’s 2020 Clash at Daytona. Follow along below.
