NASCAR One & Done Pick for Daytona

Facebooktwitter

The Cup Series will travel back to Daytona this week for another Superspeedway race. This is race No. 26 on the schedule and that we have used 25 drivers in the One & Done game. It is only going to get tougher to navigate the rest of the season, because there are not 26 drivers in the field that have a good chance to win each week. Daytona is a track were we can get a win with a driver who has no chance of winning on a short oval track. We just need some luck Saturday night.

 

ONE & DONE CONTESTS

This pick is for games where you can only use a driver once throughout the season.

TODD GILLILAND will be my pick in games where you can use a driver once throughout the season. I could have used Austin Dillon, Chris Buescher or Austin Cindric in this race, but I will save them for the shorter tracks. Gilliland has had some good results on the Superspeedways. He finished 7th and 10th in his last two races at Talladega and he finished 15th and 16th in his two races at Atlanta. Gilliland has proved that he can finish up front at a Superspeedway track. I will gladly take a top-15 finish from Gilliland Sunday.

 

 

ONE & DONE (REGULAR SEASON/PLAYOFF GAMES)

This pick is for games where you are allowed to use a driver once in the regular season (the first 26 races) and then you can use them again in the playoffs, if your team advances in the playoffs. We only need 26 drivers in these games so we can be a bit more aggressive with our picks. Here are my picks for games that reset at the end of the regular season…

ARIC ALMIORLA will be my pick in games where you can use a driver once in the regular season and then the picks reset for the playoffs. This is the last race before the picks reset in this format. Almirola is a very good Superspeedway driver. He needs a win Saturday night to make the playoffs. I am sure he will be running up front, leading some laps and scoring Stage Points from the front row. I just need Almirola to bring his car to the finish line in one piece. That has been tough for him to do, but when he does, it is a top-five finish.

 

 

ONE & DONE (USE A DRIVER MORE THAN ONCE)

I play in a game where I can use a driver three times throughout the season. I know some of you have told me you can use your drivers twice. We will only need 18 drivers in these games, so we do not need to dig too deep with our picks. Here is my pick in games where you can use a driver more than once….

BUBBA WALLACE will be my pick in games where you can use a driver more than once. It is hard to ignore Wallace on the Superspeedways. He finished second in the 2022 Daytona 500 and 11th in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 last year. Wallace had a fast car in the Daytona 500 this year, but he was caught up in wreck. Wallace needs a win to make the playoffs, so the No. 23 team should be aggressive with their strategy to keep Wallace up front. I would not be surprised if he won the race Saturday night.

Good luck Saturday night!
