AJ only has two starts at the Daytona International Speedway to date. He failed to race his way into the Daytona 500 in his first two years of Cup racing, and in July of 2007 he missed the field due to qualifying being rained out. His hopes for a good race ended early in this race last year, when a tire blew out due to the fact that he was a go-or-go home car and it was an impound race.
However, with the Duel races every February and the additional experience of the Budweiser Shootout this year, he has quite a bit of drafting time on the super speedway. Not only that, but he had a great run in the 2009 Daytona 500 with a career best 3rd place finish. I wouldn't expect great things in qualifying this afternoon, but the car should be good in the pack. And I'm sure AJ is looking forward to another run to the front on the hot and slick track tomorrow night.
