Ryan Blaney Gives Team Penske Another Daytona Sweep

Ryan Blaney Gives Team Penske Another Daytona Sweep

"It's a new day, right?"

Sunday's Daytona 500 will air live on the FOX network at 12:30 p.m. MT (2:30 p.m. ET). Our fantasy NASCAR experts are ready to help.

Each February, diehard and casual stock auto fans alike flock to Daytona Beach, Florida for the annual Speedweeks, which culminates on Sunday with "The Great American Race" - the Daytona 500.

"Terrible way to start", Johnson, a two-time 500 victor, said. As Earnhardt drove toward victory lane, crew members from almost every team lined up to congratulate him.

When it comes to daily fantasy, Daytona is a different kind of beast. "We'll take our time today and get everything dialed back in, get the setup where we want it and there's no reason we still can't win this thing Sunday".

"I'm in reasonably good shape and I have other things I'd like to do", he said.

Instead, the biggest statistic to hone in on is position differential.

Unlike most sports that save their biggest event as a Grand Finale, NASCAR opens its season with its most famous race. There aren't as many points to be gained with them as opposed to someone starting outside the top 25. "We're on the pole for the Daytona 500". The last lap was the only one Kurt led. Then, he led 43 of the 75 laps in what became a commanding performance.

It's no secret that Ford cars are dominant at restrictor-plate races, having won seven consecutive competitions and 16 of the past 28 races at Talledega and Daytona.

"There are a lot of factors that go into winning on this track", Truex said. Bowman will start the Daytona 500 from the pole. But he has the potential to win, which would earn the 46-point bonus your roster covets. He also has the sixth-best career average finish at this track among active drivers. Keselowski will be seeking his first Daytona 500 triumph, forging on with a chassis that has race-winning pedigree; he guided the chassis - since reskinned - to victory last October at Talladega Superspeedway. Lastly, who has the best shot to win their first Daytona 500?

Daytona may be the highest we see his DraftKings salary in 2018, but it's well warranted.

Joey Logano has 4/1 odds, which is a little risky with him due to his inconsistency, but Logano has a top-10 rating at Daytona. The Daytona 500 also will be Danica Patrick's NASCAR finale. He qualified 36th and drove all the way up to second. The father qualified fourth, his son fifth and well, let the champ pick it up from there: "I started running him down".

Blaney's move to Team Penske only makes him stronger entering 2018. But the Stewart-Haas Racing driver is not exactly comfortable.

Fans who pre-purchase their tickets have the opportunity to get at least a 20 percent discount on scanner rentals, which allows them to listen to the drivers and crew chiefs communicate during the race.

"I'm very excited to be back racing in the Truck Series and apart of the Young's Motorsports program", said Lagasse who has four top-10 finishes in Trucks.

'Anyone can win at Daytona.' It's been said so much that it is nearly a cliche. Qualifying sets the starting field for the Can-Am Duels to be run on Thursday evening.

It was an impressive performance for the driver of the No. 9 Chevrolet. They may still be a single-car team but the Woods also have a tight alliance with Roger Penske. He finished ninth and 12th. Perhaps he now realizes that racing is just a job like any other, that life happens off the track and, while what he does on the track matters, what happens off of it matters in a much more important way. Sometimes one has to be good at Daytona. He's been in Junior Motorsports in their cars coming up through the ranks. Of those four, his best start was 20th.
