Saturday schedule at Daytona: 2022 Xfinity season opener

The Chevrolets were dominant during qualifying and the Fords were dominant in the Duels. Marty Snider and Jeff Burton have no idea who the favorite is for the Daytona 500, as the only thing that's certain is the unknown.

Saturday’s schedule at Daytona International Speedway includes season-opening races for both the ARCA Menards Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
