Fla., will be in the air over Daytona International Speedway throughout Speedweeks . . . the ship will be a part of Fox and Fox Sports 1’s television coverage of the Sprint Unlimited and Sprint Cup qualifying during the first week, and the Can-Am Duel and the Camping World Truck, Xfinity and Sprint Cup races during the second week.
