NASCAR on Sunday will wrap up three weeks of racing at Daytona International Speedway with the O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 on the Daytona Road Course.

The World Center of Racing is hosting the first two races of the 2021 Cup Series season, which were preceded by six days of Speedweeks activities at the track. The final race day of the stretch will be a 70-lap test for drivers on the 3.61-mile road course.

The starting lineup for Sunday’s race at Daytona will be led by 2020 series champion Chase Elliott, who has won the last four Cup road races, and 2021 Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell. 

Below is all you need to know about the schedule for Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 at Daytona.

The weather forecast for Daytona Beach, Fla., on Sunday is partly cloudy skies, temperatures in the mid-60s and about a 15 percent chance of precipitation.
