The 58th running of the Daytona 500 is a week away and, while NASCAR collectors won’t have new trading cards to commemorate their new season, there are already plenty of diecasts available and more on the way.
Rookie Chase Elliott won the pole for the race on Sunday — he’s the youngest driver to ever take that honor — and he’s one of some new faces in new cars as he’s behind the No. 24 Chevy previously run by four-time champ Jeff Gordon.
Elliott is the 20-year-old son of former Cup champion Bill Elliott and had 53 top-10 finishes in 66 Xfinity Series races — four of those wins — before making the jump to NASCAR’s top level.
The No. 24 is just one of the new looks in store on both the track and the diecast front. Here’s a sampling of what’s been unveiled so far for the upcoming season.
