There will be no beer-sponsored cars in the 2018 Daytona 500

Pour one out for beer-sponsored cars in the Daytona 500. The 2018 Daytona 500 is set to be the first 500 without any beer-sponsored cars in over 30 years.

There are still beer companies sponsoring Cup Series teams. Miller Lite is continuing its longtime sponsorship with Team Penske and the No. 2 car driven by Brad Keselowski. Busch Beer is still sponsoring the No. 4 car of Kevin Harvick.

But neither company is sponsoring their drivers in the Daytona 500, meaning the Feb. 18 race will be the first since 1982 without a beer-sponsored car.

No cars will fail to qualify for this year’s Daytona 500. There are only 40 cars entered for 40 spots.

Discount Tire, which moved up to the Cup Series as a part-time primary sponsor for Keselowski’s team in 2018 is getting the sponsorship rights to the Daytona 500. Jimmy John’s, which serves as the majority primary sponsor on Harvick’s team, will be the primary sponsor for his car during the 500. No other cars have beer sponsorships.

It’s crazy to think that beer — a beverage so iconically intertwined with NASCAR and its fans — won’t have a large presence at the Daytona 500. But welcome to the changing sponsor dynamics of NASCAR. Miller cut back to just 11 races in 2018 on Keselowski’s car while Busch will sponsor a similar amount of races for Harvick.

Here’s a look back at the beer-sponsored cars in the Daytona 500. If you’re of legal age, toast a cold one or three in their memory during the race.
