Fantasy NASCAR Preview for Daytona


The NASCAR Cup Series will complete their regular season with a trip back to Daytona. There have been 15 drivers who have made it to Victory Lane this year and these drivers have secured their spot in the playoffs. That means there is one more spot up for grabs. Ryan Blaney can get into the playoffs on points “if” a repeat winner is in Victory Lane. It is going to be total chaos this week so we will need a lot of luck with our fantasy NASCAR picks at Daytona. The Coke Zero 400 can be seen Saturday night at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

* The Cup and Xfinity Series will not have practice this week. The cars will qualify Friday and then line up the cars for the race. The fantasy picks will be posted Friday after the field is set for both races.



I am not going to try and suggest I have a crystal ball to predict the finishing order at Daytona. Any driver entered in the race has a decent chance of finishing up front, but some drivers are more consistent than others. The drivers who have consistently finished up front on the Superspeedways will be the drivers at the top of the rankings this week.
