The Likely Suspects: The perennial favorites for Daytona include Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Kurt and Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart.
My 2 Cents: Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick are my no-brainer picks. Dale Earnhardt Jr., is the beyond no-brainer pick. In fact, he could easily win this race. Clint Bowyer, Paul Menard and Kurt Busch are my next picks. Joey Logano or Kasey Kahne are other fine picks. I will round out my team with Trevor Bayne and holding my breath, Michael Waltrip who will be driving the No. 55.
