It's Feb. 14 and the Daytona 500 is nearly upon us. Hopefully, it's the start of "Best Season Ever," as this video from Fox touts:

While the threat of rain looms large ahead of the start of the Great American Race at Daytona International Speedway, it has by no means dampened the spirits of drivers and fans.

Having said that, this Tyla Yaweh NASCAR remix on social media has clocked over two million views already and will only get you pumped for the Daytona 500.

Also, take a closer look at the compilation of some of the driver-specific teasers doing the rounds on social media:

Daytona 500 three-time champion Denny Hamlin

No driver has won three Daytona 500s in a row and Denny Hamlin will look to change that today. The significance of his potential milestone is certainly evident in this #3Peat teaser on his Twitter account:

Joey Logano

Joey Logano is a 26-time Cup winner and his last Daytona 500 win came in 2015.

The 2018 Cup Series champion would want nothing less than to kick off 2021in style by taking the checkered flag at Daytona today.

Here's a short teaser of what can be expected of him at Daytona International Speedway later in the day today:

Bubba Wallace

Bubba Wallace is a happy man after finally meeting NBA Hall of Famer and 23XI Racing Toyota team owner Michael Jordan.

He had a rather decent showing so far into Speedweeks where he narrowly edged past Austin Dillon to claim Duel 2.

However, this Tyla Yaweh remix on Wallace is sure to get you behind the No. 23 once Daytona 500 gets underway.

Chase Elliott

The current Cup Series champion, Chase Elliott, is yet to win the Daytona 500. As he begins his title defense today, the Harley J. Earl Trophy is something he would want to etch his name into.

Aric Almirola

Aric Almirola's win in Duel 1 earlier in the week only stands him in good stead for NASCAR's Super Bowl later in the day.

Having said that, the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing driver is surely the one to watch out for as he prepares for the Daytona 500:
