Anything Could happen at Daytona International Speedway.

The 2.5-mile tri-oval produces serious speed and constant threat.
Talladega is not significantly more narrow than Daytona and may create some big crashes at key moments. The race this year featured as it took out almost half the field, a wreck that was a part of the finish.
As a good part of the drivers were shot out by a late wreck last year’s second race at Daytona saw the problem.
So while it’s easy to point to motorists that have chances to win this week (Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin), there’s a reason the odds are not crazy low for motorists down the line to get a win. The lowest likelihood of any driver is 100/1 to get Ty Dillon.
This race is all about surviving and becoming to the last laps unscathed, and getting away from danger and starting up front will be enormous. Ten of the previous 14 winners of this race have started therefore qualifying will be key.
And we do think one of Busch, Logano or even Hamlin may come away with the win. However, this year, when in doubt, picking Kyle Busch has been the policy so this week we will go with him to win, but we admit anything could occur.
The Coke Zero Sugar 400 starts at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
