Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams hit the road to Daytona

Our long national nightmare is almost over: The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is hitting the road and ready to rumble.

Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET on FS1, 17 drivers will get the season going in the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway.

It's on people -- the teams are indeed on the road to Daytona and racing is right around the corner.

We can't wait.
