2017 Daytona 500 Advance
No. 7 Golden Corral Chevrolet
Daytona International Speedway | February 26, 2017
Locked In: Following Sunday’s Daytona 500 pole qualifying session, Elliott Sadler and the No.7 Golden Corral team locked themselves into the Daytona 500 with the second fastest time among open teams. Now the team shifts their focus to shaking down the car during practice sessions on Friday and Saturday.
Welcome back, Golden Corral: Golden Corral returns for their seventh season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) with Tommy Baldwin Racing TBR). Also returning is the Top-10 Kids Eat Free promotion. If Elliott Sadler finishes in the Top-10 on Sunday, kids will eat free at any Golden Corral location nationwide.
Sadler says: “Tommy built a brand new car for this race and he was confident we would make the Daytona 500 in qualifying. He was right. Now we’re gonna shift our focus on making the Golden Coral Chevrolet handle well. We have three days of practice to massage on it to make sure we’re ready to get a top-10 so kids can eat free. I’m glad to be a part of the Daytona 500 and know we have a chance to have a lot of fun on Sunday.”
