Daytona 500 Favorites And Dark Horses

Favorites and Dark Horses To Win The Daytona 500.


Chase Elliott #9 – Switching to the number that he won races in and won a championship in the Infinity Series, Chase Elliott is poise to finally get his first career victory this season. I think with his new number and how he performed at Super Speedways, I think he finally breaks through and gets his first win.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr #17 – One of the best drivers on Super Speedways last year winning the spring Talladega race and the July Daytona race, Stenhouse Jr look to pick up on his momentum on Super Speedways And might be able to win this year Daytona 500.

Martin Truex Jr #78 – The defending champion was also good on the Super Speedways and I believe he will be running towards the front at the end of the race.

Kyle Larson #42 – Always has a fast car and could find his way to winning the race.

Brad Keselowski #2 – One of the odd on Favorite To Win this year Daytona 500, Keselowski always seem to have one of the fastest car on restrictions plate tracks. He also know how to draft and move through the field. He might maneuver himself all the way to the checkered flag come the end of the Daytona 500.

Dark Horses:

Danica Patrick #7 – How crazy would it be if Patrick could win the Daytona 500 in her last Nascar race. She always lead a lap in every race. She could lead the last lap while holding everyone off to win the Daytona 500.

William Byron #24 – Driving the 24 Car in his first ever Monster Energy race could be very hard for the rook. He could also pull a Trevor Bayne and surprise everyone with his first ever win.

Jimmie Johnson #48 – Jimmie has wrecked in the last few Daytona 500. He could win this race if he stay out of trouble.

Ryan Blaney #12 – Penske Car always have been strong on restrictive plate tracks. Blaney could his find way up towards the front and pull the upset by winning the 500.
