After a new qualifying format was introduced this year, there was a majority of drivers left upset. The issue was the new group qualifying instead of the traditional single car on track. In my mind there is no doubt this was a mistake. The qualifying lap needs to be a time of 100% focus on the track and speed. Not wondering if the man in front, behind, to your left, or to your right is going to do something intentionally to drag your time along with theirs. Which turned out to be an issue.

The new format might be ridiculous, but in the end it all comes down to race day. The line up isn't far off from what it would of been if there had been no changes. Here is the list of the 43 Daytona 500 drivers from starting position:
