DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray and Aric Almirola all had their helmets on before sunrise last Sunday at the Daytona International Speedway.

While all but Almirola were going to compete in The Clash exhibition race later that morning, all joined part-time Xfinity Series driver Scott Lagasse Jr. in a 45-mile bicycle ride to bring attention to cyclist and motorist safety.
