2015 NASCAR Champ Starts Again
Kyle Busch missed the first 11 races of the 2015 season after suffering a compound leg fracture and a midfoot fracture in a NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Daytona. However, his fortunes reversed in remarkable fashion -- leading to him winning the first ever NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship. 

He'll look to get off to a fast start in 2016, starting fourth on the grid.

This Year's Major Storyline
Rookie Chase Elliott is going to have outsized expectations placed on him on Sunday. Taking over the #24 from the retired Jeff Gordon, Elliott's car will be sporting the legendary # in pole position out of the gate. If he can somehow pull off a wire-to-wire win, it'd be one of those "where were you?" moments in NASCAR history.
