NASCAR Budweiser Shootout

 The Sprint Unlimited at Daytona is an annual invitation-only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series exhibition event held at Daytona International Speedway in February, the weekend before the Daytona 500. It is the first competitive event of the season and serves as a kickoff event for the NASCAR portion of Speedweeks. As of the 2013 running of the event, the race primarily features all the drivers who qualified first for the 36 races of the previous Cup season. This has been the format for all but four editions of the event.

The event was originally known as the Busch Clash, and consisted of a 20-lap/50-mile, "all-out sprint" for the previous season's pole position winners. In its current format, it is made up of three segments, culminating in a 20-lap sprint to the finish. Like the All-Star Race held at Charlotte, the race awards no championship points but instead offers a large cash purse – circumstances which are supposed to encourage an all-out driving style not seen in regular-season races.

The invitation-only field consists of a maximum of 28 cars, as opposed to 43 starters in a standard event. The starting lineup is determined by fan vote, not by time trials as all other races are determined. The defending winner of the Unlimited is Denny Hamlin after winning all three segments in 2014.
