The NASCAR Xfinity Series driver opens their season with the seriws’ semi-annual stop at Daytona International Speed on this afternoon for their 125-lap extravaganza.
Five drivers/teams to watch (in no particular order
- Kaulig Racing adding Chastain: Kaulig Racing made their maiden Daytona 500 with Defending track champion Justin Haley behind the wheel and his Fraternal Order of Eagles livery glistened in the nice sky. Adding Chastain will kost definitely help Haley gain knowledge and understanding of the cars, and in turn, he the team ewill win two races with Chastain and 3 with Haley,
- Myatt Snider: Snider has skills and talent; and this season, he is partnered with arguabley the best powerhouse and rising teams in the series. He should win three races.
- Harrison Burton: It has been widely reported that Harrison Burton left Kyle Busch Motorsports with frigid seat. His performance last season was lackluster, especially in the latter portion of the season. His results in this series weren’t comparable to those of Christopher Bell nor Brandon Jones. I strongly believe, however, that he will consistently outrun Brandon Jones and leave Herbst scratching his head. Burton might not light up the series like Bell and Jones have recently, but he should be inside the Top-10, Who know? he might surprise everybody by becoming a perennial championship contender.
- Chase Briscoe v, Austin Cindric: Briscoe wil consistently outrun Cindric, except on Road and Street courses. Cindric belongs in a discipline of racing where the drivers run on road and street courses like IMSA. Will that ever happen? Probably not, but look back on the head-o-head statistics from their time together at Brad Keselowski Racing. Briscoe consistently beat Cindric unless Briscoe wrecked. Take a look at how successful Stewart-Haas Racing was last year compared to Team Penske. Cindric was supposedly in his second season.
- Snider v Alfredo: Snider will outperform Anthony Alfredo even when he drives the RSS 93 car.
