Daytona 500 2/20/22 - NASCAR Picks & Predictions

NASCAR is ready to kick off the race season again this year with the big race the Daytona 500. Now, the key thing is a lot of the drivers that are coming back are the same that have been in the race before, but some minor team changes have happened. So who are some of the drivers to keep an eye out on? 

Denny Hamlin is one driver who has done really well at the Daytona 500 lately and has been able to run away with the races. However, Hamlin is coming off of a disappointment last year after being one of the early favorites to win the cup last year only to fall short.

Kyle Larson the champion from last year is looking strong this year, but the factor for Larson is the fact that Larson did not show in the winners circle in the Daytona 500 last season and has been notorious for being a slow starter in the seasons so far.

Free Auto Racing Pick:

Chase Elliott +1000

One driver that has run consistent last year and is not coming in with a lot of changes from last season is Chase Elliott. Elliott is easily one of the top drivers in NASCAR and not only has his own experience two help guide him around the track, but also has NASCAR legend and his father Bill Elliott to give him advice as well. Look for that to make it easier for the Daytona 500 champion this year to be none other than Chase Elliott. Daytona 500 Winner Prediction, Chase Elliott.
