    THE DAYTONA 500 (Speedweeks/all 3 series)---

    Alright guys the 2019 season is about to kickoff this weekend with the annual 75- lap Exhibition race, The Clash, on Sunday afternoon at 3PM to kick off Speedweeks!!!!!! the Daytona 500 front row only qualifying will be at noon on FOX this Sunday also before the Clash...I decided to lump all of Speedweeks in 1 thread this year to make things easier... And as usual we will then have the The Duels on Thursday night starting at 7PM on FS1, followed by trucks Friday night on FS1, The Xfinity race is Saturday afternoon at 2:30PM on FS1, followed up by the 500 next Sunday afternoon on FOX at 3PM...all times always EST

    DAYTONA International Speedway is a 2.5 mile asphalt high speed Tri-oval with 21 degrees of banking in all 3 turns, 18 degrees in the tri-oval and just 2 degrees on the back straightaway..


    As you all know Daytona is the last race with the 2018 body and aero packages and we will be starting out with new everything after the 500 is completed...The only change for Daytona is we will see the brand new Ford Mustang car for the 1st time....But for this week the packages are the same packages as 2018 was...That Ford dominated btw..


    As always Daytona races, like all plate races, are a lot of luck but there is also a method to picking the lineup...now for whatever reason the 500 is by far my most unlucky of the 4 yearly plate races, the only plate race I've actually lost in several years now so Im hoping that changes this time!!!


    This is probably gonna be a tough first 4-6 races to try and see how the new changes to all the packages and Ford car come out of the gates before we can get to where we always are...But just like every other year we will figure it all out and start cashing in those pay checks! I will post a speedweeks schedule later today


    GOODLUCK TO EVERYBODY THIS SEASON!!!! Feel free to post opinions and picks anytime you like..There is a great small group of NASCAR guys here with a lot of knowledge...This thread is a yearly cash cow for a reason!!!!!




    CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And for the Clash and the Duels I wont bet those as normal races, will just pick a few guys for each race and prob just put smaller than usual on these events, but I will update that if plans change...will post my couple early darts for Clash shortly...

    Have not bet anything for the 500 as of yet but will take a couple early plays soon

    early Clash bets:

    Elliott +1200
    Almirola +1250
    Dillon +3300


    May add Logano tomorrow after odds repost, but for me no value in any of the single digit favs early..and maybe a longshot later but that would be it for this...And tail at your own risk on this exhibition race, I wont bet regular amounts overall til they count..this is a warm up week lol ..doubt ill take any matchups either, at least that's the plan anyways

    All is well! Ready for a big year . But yes Menard 40/1 and Newman 50/1 are my long shot bets so far for the 500. I will definitely check in here weekly to discuss some plays!

    What did we learn today?

    That Chase Elliot wants this really badly? And might be a bit over-keen?

    Logano was the rightful early favorite?

    The Front Row Racing guys have speed (and 100-1 plus odds). Buying BK assets, full Ford backing and closer ties with Roush could = surprise packet for 2019?

    The JGR cars all work together well?

    Menard 38-1 seems high to me since he won the pole drawing...not that I'm a big believer in Menard anywhere, but ill take that as my other longshot

    If i was just taking 1 guy I would probably just take Logano...

    But I am not betting this race normal and would kick myself if i lost too much on it since it doesn't even count...hoped his odds would get better but didn't and don't wanna risk it since we have 5 different races coming up next week ill be playing...So better or worse, I doubt I add anybody else to Win..just sit back and enjoy....will look over matchups tomorrow morning maybe

    Weather radar looking a little more promising than earlier this morning. Hopefully just stays cloudy for this afternoon

    Daytona 500 qualifying starts at noon otn Fox today. But really its just for the front row spots in case anybody doesnt know. The other 40 spots or whatever will be from finishing positions from the Duel races Thursday night
