The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series kicks off the 2012 season with its biggest race, the Daytona 500 from Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, Feb. 26. Joining the field of NASCAR stalwarts like Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards and 2011 Cup champion Tony Stewart is former IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, who will make her Sprint Cup debut at Daytona. In last year’s race, Trevor Bayne shocked the motorsports world by becoming the youngest driver — at 20 years and one day — to win the Daytona 500.
