Martin Truex Jr. ponders breaking out lucky charm for Daytona 500

He has never placed higher than third in the Daytona 500 and will also have the competitive disadvantage of starting 19th on Sunday.

So, what can fans expect from the 60th Daytona 500? Hamlin won the Daytona 500 in 2016 and has an average finish of 12.4 in the past 10 Daytona races, including the July one, which is best among all active drivers. That won't change in 2018.

"I feel like this is its own race", said 2017 cup champion Martin Truex Jr. Hamlin finished 17th a year ago. That said, we were really slow by ourselves.

Read on for a preview and live-stream information for Thursday's NASCAR Duels at Daytona International Speedway as Florida prepares for one of the most celebrated weekends in the motorsport calendar.

"But you need to also remember this is the last Daytona 500 she's ever gonna run".

The qualifying races were critical for teams running a limited schedule by providing them the opportunity to race their way into the Daytona 500.

Two-time Super Bowl Champion Peyton Manning will drive the Honorary Pace Car for the 60th annual Daytona 500 on February 18, according to Daytona International Speedway. And in that haste, there comes waste. In a similar vein, pole victor Alex Bowman (+2800) should be faded on that basis that no pole victor has triumphed since Dale Jarrett in 2000. Denny Hamlin, who won the 2016 race, will start second.

Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson are all +1200 to win. "He occasionally self-destructs, but I think he's reached a point in his career that he is going to put it all together and win the championship". William Byron won the championship last season but has graduated to Cup and won't be defending his title. This year, I say he learns from that mistake and starts 2018 with a victory.

Like you didn't expect this?

What has caused the reduction in vehicle counts for what NASCAR has always billed as the most important race of the season? "If you want action on a racetrack, look no further than the Daytona 500". The official definition there means any crash that involves five or more cars, and at Daytona, you can easily surpass that. Check out the final standings from last season.
