Which driver Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski has the best shot of winning the Busch Clash at Daytona?
Brad Keselowski won this race in 2018. Joey Logano finished second to Kesel that year. In 2017, Logano took the checkered flag while Keselowski finished sixth. What happened last year? Logano finished third and Keselowski finished eighteenth.
Although all drivers hope to race well in the Busch Clash, the real prize is next Sunday at the Daytona 500. Keselowski won’t go all out on Feb. 9. Just like he didn’t go all out last year. Logano and his crew have done well in this 3 years running. If you want to back chalk, back Joey.
Which drivers with odds from +900 to +1200 can win the Busch Clash?Ryan Blaney can grab the prize money. Last year, Blaney finished fourth. He also finished fourth in 2018. How did Ryan perform in 2017? Not well because he didn’t race. He didn’t race at The Clash in 2016, either.
That’s a good thing. It means the two times Blaney has driven in this race, he’s grabbed a couple of Top 5 finishes. At +1200, Ryan offers decent odds. Give him a shot to take the checkered flag.
What drivers offering odds of +1400 to +1600 can win at Daytona on Sunday?
A couple of drivers qualify. Kurt Busch finished second last year. That was his first NASCAR Season driving for Chip Ganassi Racing. The year before, Busch finished third driving for Stewart-Haas.
Jimmie Johnson won this race last year. The greatest driver in NASCAR history has declared 2020 his final season. Johnson figures to go all out this year. He won’t use the Busch Clash as a warmup for the Daytona 500. He’s going to try and win. At the 1600 odds, JJ’s worth a look.
Which driver among Erik Jones, Kyle Larson, Austin Dillon, and Ryan Newman can win the 2020 Busch Clash at Daytona?
Give Austin Dillon a big chance. 2019 was a bad year for Austin Dillon. He failed to finish in the Top 5 in any race. It was the first time in his career he failed to crack the Top 5 barrier. Also, he finished twenty-first in the final point standings. That was the lowest of his career.
Dillon can bounce back in 2020. Although 2019 was awful, it didn’t start out bad. He finished sixth in the Busch Clash. Austin can start the 2020 NASCAR Season out well with a win on Feb. 9.
