  • Today's Daytona 500 is the biggest event of the year for motorsports bettors, DFS and Fantasy NASCAR players.
  • We've ranked the entire Daytona 500, 1-40, so bettors and Fantasy NASCAR players know which drivers to target for today's race.

The Advance Auto Parts Clash, qualifying, the Can-Am Duel races and practice sessions are complete, meaning the Daytona 500 is finally here!

After analyzing the data from the on-track activity mentioned above, as well historical results from Daytona International Speedway, I’ve compiled my rankings for the entire 2019 Daytona 500 field, 1-40, for both sports bettors and Fantasy NASCAR players.

Please note that my rankings are based on raw projected speed/strength, and do not take into account other factors that are often included in many Fantasy NASCAR formats, like laps led, fast laps, position differential, etc.
