Last night motorsport legend Travis Pastrana qualified for the Daytona 500 for 23XI Racing, in a car owned by Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan. He's pretty much done it all aside from run the 500 which seemed like a big deal to him based on this clip. Luckily the boys at 23XI hooked him up with a FAST ride and he was able to lock himself in.

Pastrana will join NASCAR veteran and driver/team owner Jimmie Johnson who was the other car qualifying for the 500 on speed. 

Jimmie Johnson returns to NASCAR as a part time driver and team owner of Legacy Motor Club. The 7-time Cup champion left NASCAR in 2020 but returns this season on a part time basis starting Sunday.

Make sure to tune in to Fox at 1:30pm on Sunday for the Great American Race.

And Malcom in the Middle / Big Fat Liar fans be sure to tune in on Saturday as Frankie Muniz makes his NASCAR debut racing in the ARCA series. He'll drive the #30 Ford for Rette Jones Racing at Daytona and in several other races. 

So much to watch for! Be sure to tune in all weekend. Myself, Large, Alex Bennett, Joey, and Pat are all headed to Daytona this weekend. Come say hi or follow the action all weekend long with us at Rubbin Is Racing.
