Chase Briscoe is 50/1 to win 2022 Daytona 500


● The 64th annual Daytona 500 on Feb. 20 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway marks Chase Briscoe’s second start in the prestigious NASCAR Cup Series event and the first for the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) team’s new sponsor Mahindra Tractors. Briscoe started 30th in his Daytona 500 debut in 2021 after a spin resulting in damage during his Duel qualifying race forced the No. 14 team to unload its backup car for Sunday’s race. He methodically worked his way toward the top-20 before rain brought things to a halt on lap 31. Once racing resumed, Briscoe was running 22nd when the car ahead of him lost control due to a flat tire and made contact with the No. 14 Mustang. The team made repairs and Briscoe returned to the track and avoided further incident to finish 19th in his first points-paying Cup Series race.

● Before Briscoe can make a run at redemption in Daytona 500, the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year will have to make it through the Bluegreen Vacations Duel – twin 150-mile qualifying races that set the 40-car field for Sunday’s race. The front row for the Daytona 500 will be set based on fastest times during single-lap qualifying on Wednesday night. Odd-numbered qualifiers compete in the first Duel and even-numbered qualifiers battle in the second Duel to fill out the rest of the starting grid for Sunday’s race.

● In addition to last year’s Daytona 500, Briscoe has had one other Cup Series outing at Daytona in August 2021, when he started in 16th and appeared headed for a top-10 finish before being caught up in a multicar accident during overtime. Unable to complete the final lap, he was scored 22nd, one lap down.

● Outside of the Cup Series, he has made six previous starts at Daytona – four in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and one apiece in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and in the ARCA Racing Series. He has started within the top-10 for five of those races, with his best being a third-place qualifying effort in the 2016 ARCA season-opener. His best finish is third, earned twice – August 2020 in the Xfinity Series and February 2017 in the Truck Series.

● After making their first appearance on the famed No. 14 during the Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum on Feb. 6, Mahindra Tractors, a brand of Houston-based Mahindra Ag North America, joins Briscoe for his second appearance in The Great American Race. Part of Mahindra Group’s Automotive and Farm Sector, Mahindra Ag North America is the No. 1 selling farm tractor company in the world, based on volumes across all company brands. Mahindra farm equipment is engineered to be easy to operate by first-time tractor or side-by-side owners, and heavy duty to tackle the tough jobs of rural living, farming and ranching. Steel-framed Mahindra tractors and side-by-sides are ideal for customers who demand performance, reliability and comfort at a great value. Mahindra dealers are independent, family-owned businesses located throughout the US and Canada.

● The longer the workday – or the race day – the more important comfort becomes. Mahindra Tractors offers many comfort features for its operators, including air suspension seats with extra cushioning. At the racetrack this season, guests of SHR will be able to experience that comfort for themselves as the No. 14 pitbox has been retrofitted with the Mahindra comfort seat.

● For the second consecutive year, Briscoe will join the FOX broadcast team for the ARCA race at Daytona on Feb. 19 as an analyst during its live coverage of the 80-lap event. Briscoe is the 2016 ARCA champion, a title he won by a commanding 535-point margin thanks to a series-best six wins. The ARCA race gets underway at 1:30 pm ET on FS1.
