Christopher Bell, Cole Custer, Tyler Reddick, Quin Houff, Brennan Poole and John Hunter Nemechek make up a talented NASCAR Cup Series rookie class for 2020. The last driver to win the DAYTONA 500 in their first start was Trevor Bayne in 2011.
Both Reddick and Houff have one start each in the Cup Series at DIS – last year Reddick finished 27th in the DAYTONA 500 and Houff 37th in the Coke Zero Sugar 400.
And while Hunter Nemechek may be a rookie, he’s got plenty of familiarity with Daytona International Speedway. The 22-year-old Nemechek, whose father Joe is also a NASCAR Cup Series driver, has been to every DAYTONA 500 since he was born.
