As a big fan of road racing myself, I am extremely excited for this weekend of racing on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series moving towards more road races I believe is a step in the right direction as NASCAR continues to try and build the sport. The Daytona Road course will be one of two road races this year as NASCAR is introducing a race at Watkins Glen International Speedway this year. Last year’s road race at Daytona was extremely action-packed right down to the wire. Sheldon Creed was able to hold off his GMS Racing Teammate, Brett Moffitt, twice on two restarts in the last five laps. The race was dominated by Creed and Moffitt, as they combined to lead 32 of 46 laps. This week’s race is promising to offer the same type of action. 

Below is a lineup that we believe can provide the best value for the BrakeBest Brake Pads 159 at Daytona International Speedway Road Course on 02/19/2021 (DraftKings Values)

Driver #1Sheldon Creed $ 10,400
Driver #2  $ 10,000
Driver #3Tyler Ankrum $ 9,800
Driver #4  $ 8,000
Driver #5  $ 5,700
Driver #6Timmy Hill $ 5,000

Sheldon Creed: This pick is in the realm of a no-brainer to me. Sheldon Creed is likely to be the sure thing week in and week out this year. In last year’s road race Creed finished first after starting 14th. With very little information on how each driver has done in the past on road courses, this week’s predictions are going to be a little more on the “gut feeling” side of things. My gut this week says that Creed will be right in the mix at the end of the race. He has shown he can win on road courses, specifically after winning this very race in 2020. Creed is one of the best drivers in the series and I cannot see why he doesn’t perform exceptionally on Friday night. 

Tyler Ankrum: 2020 was a pretty solid year for the second-year full-time driver. Tyler Ankrum was able to add another three top-five finishes to his three top-five finishes in 2019. Ankrum was unable to get a win in 2020, but he did come close at Homestead Miami finishing second. In last year’s road race at Daytona Ankrum was able to secure a sixth-place finish. With Ankrum starting 26th in this race I believe he has excellent point differential potential. If he can mimic his finish from last year he will be in place for a large 20 extra points due to improving his place by 20 positions. 

Tyler Hill: I am going expensive with my two top picks this week which means I need to dig deep for some value/sleeper drivers. I like the position that Timmy Hill is in to start the BrakeBest Brake Pads 159. Starting 34th gives Hill a lot of point differential potential. In 2020 Hill was not a part of the Daytona Road Course race, however, Hill has been racing in the Xfinity Series and Cup Series quite frequently over the last few years. In the 2020 season, Hill had two top 10 finishes in the Truck Series, one top-five in the Xfinity Series, and two top 10’s in the Xfinity Series.

Below is a lineup that we believe can provide the best value for the BrakeBest Brake Pads 159 at Daytona International Speedway Road Course on 02/19/2021 (DraftKings Values)

Driver #1Sheldon Creed $ 10,400
Driver #2Brett Moffitt $ 10,000
Driver #3Tyler Ankrum $ 9,800
Driver #4Raphael Lessard $ 8,000
Driver #5Tate Fogleman $ 5,700
Driver #6Timmy Hill $ 5,000

Brett Moffitt: This is a similar story to what I mentioned with Creed. Brett Moffitt is a no-brainer for me this week. Even with the high price tag, Moffitt offers a lot of appeal this week with his 21st starting position. The plus/minus one point for point differential can be the make or break number for a lot of drivers every week in DFS. In the 2020 Daytona Road Race Moffitt was right behind Creed as they crossed the finish line. I also think that Moffitt will be out for vengeance after a less than exceptional 25th place finish in the NextEra Energy 250 last Friday. With his history on road courses and 21st starting position Moffitt is in for a big race.

Raphael Lessard: Coming off of an excellent rookie season Raphael Lessard is a favorite of mine going into 2020. Lessard finished 2020 with one win, four top-five finishes, seven top 10 finishes while leading 20 laps. Lessard was extremely impressive last year on the Daytona road course where he was able to turn a tenth place start into a third-place finish. Lessard also had a great finish to the 2020 season as he placed top-five in three of the last five races, with one of them being a win at Talladega Superspeedway. 

Tate Fogleman: This driver is my deep sleeper of the week, Tate Fogleman is a value-based pick this week that enables me to pick two top-flight drivers in Sheldon Creed and Brett Moffitt. In Fogleman’s first full-time season in 2020 he was unable to make any top 10 finishes, however, did have three top 15 finishes. Starting 28th in this Friday’s Truck race Fogleman could be the key to winning this week due to his potential for point differential points.  In last year’s road race Fogleman was able to finish 19th. In 2019, while part of the CARS Super Late Model Tour Fogleman had three top-five finishes in eight races.
