Daytona COKE ZERO 400

My #5 pick is a former winner here, #18 Kyle Busch. Kyle has 24 starts, one win, and eight Top 5’s. Kyle finished second in this race last year but when he returned here to start the year he finished 38th. Look for a Top 5 or bottom five from Kyle.

My #4 driver to watch has never won here and only one Top 5, #3 Austin Dillon. A.D. only has one Top 5 in his seven starts but he leads the field in overall average finish. He is rated my #4 plate track driver. Currently he sits 20th in points, he needs a Top 5 finish.

My #3 driver needs a big finish here, #22 Joey Logano. Joey has 17 starts, one win, and four Top 5’s here. He is my #3 rated plate driver, why does he need a big finish? He is 10th in points and 19th hottest over the last six weeks.

The #2 driver won here in February, #41 Kurt Busch. Kurt has 32 starts, that win, and 13 Top 5’s. He is my #1 rated plate track driver but he is also #9 hottest over the last six weeks.

My #1 pick is my #2 rated plate track driver, #11 Denny Hamlin. Denny has 23 starts, one win, and just six Top 5’s. Not great stats, but he has finished 6th or better in his last six stops here. He is also #6 hottest over the last six weeks.
