Conway not yet approved for Daytona 500

Front Row Motorsports rookie Kevin Conway might have to begin his quest for Sprint Cup rookie honors sometime after the Daytona 500. NASCAR has not yet given Conway approval to race a Cup car at Daytona International Speedway, a NASCAR spokesman confirmed Monday. Conway has no restrictor-plate starts in any of the three NASCAR national touring series and none in the Automobile Racing Club of America. Typically, NASCAR would require a driver to have a start in a restrictor-plate race in another series or have raced in another elite, high-speed form of racing before making a Cup debut at Daytona. A Front Row Motorsports spokesman said the team is in talks with NASCAR about his certification for Daytona. Conway has 25 starts in the Nationwide Series, with one start at a 2-mile track. He finished 18th at Auto Club Speedway in California last October. SceneDaily
