The 63rd annual Daytona 500 race will be more than a little different as COVID has raged in the year since the last Daytona 500 race. One of the largest changes will be in the limited attendance of fans watching in-person. Instead of selling out the more than 100,000 person capacity stadium, NASCAR officials have limited the event to just 30,000 in-person fans.
There has also been some driver changes as both Bubba Wallace and Daniel Suarez will be suiting up for different teams than they did last year. Wallace will be driving for 23XI Racing while Suarez will be driving for the Trackhouse Racing Team this year.
If you can't catch all of the race on TV or streaming on a mobile device, you can always catch it on the radio. Both Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will be providing audio coverage. Of course, whether you watch or listen everyone will be checking to see if Denny Hamlin adds yet another win in this year's main event.
