Dale Earnhardt Jr on the slingshot being the winning move at Daytona:
"Absolutely. That's the whole thing. When you're in second, whenever you want to pass the guy, you can do it in 50 yards. You pull out, and he just stops – it just kills his car.
"There's a 20 mph difference between how the cars run by themselves and how they run in the bump-draft. As soon as you pull out, you can just go right by him.
"It's definitely best to be running second in a little two-car lock off of Turn 4 and (pass) somewhere between there and the flagstand. It's the same thing they were doing at Talladega last year."
