The Super Bowl is over and everyone's attention falls onto Early Bird's upcoming Xfinity series. Starting this series on February 10 with a 20 lap shootout for bonus points. Drivers are anticipating the Early Bird Shootout as it is the prelude to Early Bird's own Speed Week. Every driver testing, tuning, ready to boost their chest and show off what they have under the hoods of their cars and their talents that they have been honing during the off season. Even though this is only a 20-lap race, it gives a slight point advantage to the winner as the Xfinity series will officially begin with the EBR Daytona 500.
February 17, 2018, the “Honey-Do Lists” will have to wait as that is the morning of the Early Bird Daytona 500.Drivers will be filled with excitement, anticipation, nervousness, doubt, all these feeling wrapped together as they climb into their cockpits or pull up the office chairs to the desk that their mean, gaming machine sits on. Ready to run some practice laps, qualify the best they can, then it's time to sit back, take a deep breath, close your eyes, just for a moment. Then it is time to fire up the Ford Mustangs, the Chevrolet Camaros and the Toyota Camrys for a grueling 75-lap run to be the first to cross the finish line and take the checkered flag.
