Chase Elliott won the pole in the final qualifying lap on Sunday for the Daytona 500 (Sunday, Feb. 26, 1 p.m. ET, Fox), but the big news of course is what the cheerleaders are wearing.
Do they call them cheerleaders in NASCAR? Not sure. What we do know is that sponsorship of the race has passed from Sprint (and Sprint Girls in fire suits) to Monster Energy Drink, which has a, um, different take on things. Call it 50 Shades of NASCAR, I guess.
Some NASCAR fans are not down with their attire.

The Monster victory lane girls look like hookers. What's up with that @NASCAR

Pretty girls and racing go together no argument. However Monster drink I think this is too much. NASCAR IS A FAMILY SHOW!!! pic.twitter.com/wpPnajua6D

Yes, especially since kids love Confederate battle flags and beer.
