Will the Community funded #66 HEX NASCAR Deliver Tonight in Las Vegas?

On February 17, 2022, the first ever Nascar driven by @jjyeley1 took to the qualifying stage of the Daytona 500. The race started out with the Hex car losing significant time, more than a second a lap, and to be honest I thought we were done before the 10th lap.

Miraculously, the only car that #55 needed to finish in front of, #50(Floyd Mayweather's sponsored car), was flagged for speeding in the pit and was penalized by having to wait for a given period before getting back in the race.

It was as if it was meant to be. @jjyeley1 had managed to separate himself by a number of cars by the 30th lap, and it seemed like surely he would qualify. Unfortunately, it would not be enough.

On the very last lap of the race, the #50 car passed @jjyeley1 on the last corner, ending the journey before it could begin for the Daytona 500. Today, however we have not only another chance to see the car take the stage, but a new car entirely.
