In 2011, Columbia-bred Carl Edwards qualified in the No. 22 position, but that didn't stop him from finishing as the runner-up in the big race. Heading into Sunday's 2012 Daytona 500 Qualifying he may not be too concerned about his placement, but the event is nonetheless important and will give the top placers a noted advantage come next Sunday. If Edwards finishes in the top two today, he'll be locked into the grid for the race, but if he doesn't, he'll move onto Thursday night's Gatorade Duels. Here's SB Nation's Jeff Gluck on the entire process: Race date/time: Sunday, February 19, 2012, 12:05 p.m. CST Location: Daytona Speedway, Daytona, Fla.
