Christopher Bell drove to the win after Chase Elliott’s early domination of the event. It’s Bell’s first career NASCAR Cup Series victory.

The NASCAR Cup Series event on Daytona Road Course brought more average viewers than the Daytona 500. However, the famed Daytona 500 saw a 6-hour delay due to rain which hindered viewership.

4,750,000 tuned in to watch the Daytona Road Course event on Sunday, February 21, 2021. The race saw a household rating of 2.8.

NASCAR was the most-watched sporting event of the weekend. The PGA Tour’s Genesis Open came in second with 3,617,000 viewers.
