The rest of the Top 10 in order, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick and Greg Biffle. Patrick has qualified tweeks in a row in the Top-10.

2013 NASCAR RACE 1 PREVIEW: Sprint Cup Daytona 500, today at 1 pm on Fox Sports

The 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season officially opens today with one of the most popular races on the circuit, the Daytona 500 from Daytona Beach, Florida.

The race starts at 1 pm, today, February 24 on FOX Sports.

On the pole will Danica Patrick, who is the first female driver to ever achieve the top spot in NASCAR’S premiere series.

The design of the track at Daytona, which opened 54 years ago in 1959, was based on the high-banked oval at the Ford Proving Grounds near the motor city of Detroit.

The track is one of the largest on the Sprint Cup circuit of 2.5 miles in length and is a 500-mile, 200-lap race.

If there is rain in the Daytona area, NASCAR has found a way to dry the track quicker.

They’ll use a new drying system which can improve by 80%. It can dry the track in 30 minutes instead of years past when it would take 2 1/2 hours.

The race track is a tricky, 11-turn road course which covers 2.45 miles of natural terrain. The race will cover 220.5 miles which equates to a 90-lap race.
Racing began at The Glen in 1948 on a course that included asphalt, concrete and dirt roads through the village which has a population of 2,149 people. The races were moved to a temporary course in 1953 before a permanent circuit was built in 1956.
The 1965 race won by Marvin Panch, had just 19 cars, led for all but 13 laps and pocketed a purse of $1,425. Cup racing left and did not return until 1986.

In the last 10 NASCAR Cup races at Watkins Glen, Tony Stewart has won 5 wins with Kyle Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya and Kevin Harvick with one each.
