Dale Earnhardt Jr. may not be driving this season, but the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet still took a familiar position on Sunday with newcomer Alex Bowman winning the Daytona 500 pole ahead of the Feb. 18 (2:30 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) race.

This marks the second straight season with the No. 88 sitting on the front row for the “Great American Race.” And from the sidelines, Junior and wife Amy Earnhardt were cheering on their former team.
