Hylton will surpass his own mark for racing longevity set three years ago when the then-73-year-old racer started the Nationwide event at Daytona. Hylton is racing for JD Motorsports and will start 43rd in Friday's night's Royal Purple 200 after qualifying was washed out by afternoon rain.
Hylton first raced in NASCAR in 1964 and has won twice in the Sprint Cup series, the last at Talladega in 1972. He remains active in the ARCA series, finishing 19th in driver points in 2010.
