2017 Daytona 500 – Taxing to Thrilling! – NASCARvisionary.com daytona 500 racers 2017

NASCARvisionary.com Dedicated NASCAR Daily Fantasy and Wagering information

More 2017 Daytona 500 – Taxing to Thrilling!

The 2017 Daytona 500 contained some of the oddest sequences I can ever recall seeing. With 5 laps to go the top ten was absent of almost all drivers with under 20/1 odds. This was due to over 30 cars being involved in crashes. The Daytona 500 was just that type of rare race as it followed in suit with the rest of the weekends bashing activities. The 2017 Daytona 500 was indeed the superstar laced wreck fest that was predicted. The sunshine factor played havoc on handling and most drivers found themselves chasing a loose condition from the drop of the green flag. The teams were fighting car handeling issues without the luxury of time on pit row. Pit stops were focused on track position or damage repair the entire day. These were desperate drivers racing to the stage’s conclusion in attempt to earn points when nothing seemed certain.

After the tow truck drivers put in double time for the mid/late race portion of the 500 the real racing was on. With 5 laps remaining this group of mostly young drivers ran like all-star racers. In the end with the help of one of the  young sons (#21 R. Blaney) Kurt Busch was sprung to the high line and vaulted to victory passing Kyle Larson on the final lap! haiivwhy. replica watch forum rwiThe Daytona 500 may have had its taxing moments, however the 500 never fails to deliver a thrilling finish. This year’s running was no exception and hopefully its the beginning of NASCAR racing that is suddenly strategy driven on a curve.

DFS – Drivers priced at over $8,200 on DraftKings were basically absent from the top ten other than Kurt Busch. The winning roster in the big DraftKings $20 entry tournament left over $5000 on the table with Martin Truex Jr. as the highest priced driver. This was the type of carnage filled race that it took to win a tournament of 30,000 entries. Not my style of DFS due to the wipe out weeks but congrats to those who won it.

Many of the DFS suggestions were taken out of the race and even more drivers that did not make the list were taken out as well. This was just as predicted, a wreck fest for the ages and that is saying a lot for Daytona. Cash games and 50/50s, (7) entries cashed and (4) did not for a nice profit. Tournaments were played lightly finished mid pack in most cases. Overall DFS was a slight loss due to only the giant vig.  this was not bad considering what we saw.

Wagering – Hamlin was wrecked twice and still managed to finish on the lead lap. My predicted value winner did not win. However, dealing with Daytona it is hard to get your main pick home and that is the vital reason for the other wagers. If you followed the betting selections provided the night before then you won big overall!  Value paid off again at Daytona, this time @ 22/1 odds with K.Busch winning. Again, as I said betting NASCAR is all about value to Las Vegas odds. I believe strongly there are two sets of odds, there are Las Vegas odds, then there are True odds. I spend time investigating (like Columbo, no cigar) what the True odds should be based on a formula.

After the “Smoke” cleared and his driver was in victory circle anybody who followed the blog selections should have made out very well with the 22-1 win. Covering all costs a net profit of >14/1 should have been acquired.

Next week is Atlanta where Kurt Busch has already won 3x. Stay tuned.

NASCAR Next graduates participate in Daytona 500 2,305 views 28 shares Share on Facebook Share 22 Share on Twitter Tweet 2 Share on Linkedin Share 0 Pin It Pin it 4 Share on Google+ Share 0 Share by Email Share by Email By: Tim Southers , NASCAR PR Manager 26/02/2017 01:17 A total of 13 graduates and two current members competing over the weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

In 2007, NASCAR lowered the minimum age to compete in its developmental series allowing drivers as young as 16 to compete.

This decision it opened the door for current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers such as Joey Logano, Trevor Bayne, Austin and Ty Dillon to compete in what is now called the NASCAR K&N Pro Series as they started their NASCAR Touring Series careers.

All four of those drivers scored wins in NASCAR's top developmental series with Logano winning a series championship in 2007. A few years later NASCAR also lowered the minimum age to compete in a touring series again to 15 in 2011.

After Logano’s rapid rise to the NASCAR national series and Bayne’s historic win in the Daytona 500 in 2011, their early success at a young age brought an awareness to NASCAR to develop a program to help prepare young racers for success on and off the track.

Bayne's Daytona 500 win brought idea

After Bayne’s win, NASCAR began a program called NASCAR Next to identify and develop young drivers that were thought to possess the driving skills and marketing ability to make it up through the NASCAR Ladder system.

This year a total of 15 drivers to either graduate or still be a part of the program were scheduled to compete in one of the three NASCAR national series races scheduled this weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

If you include Alex Bowman driving last weekend in the Clash, a total of 16 drivers out of the 46 drivers that have been a part of the program since its inception will have competed during Speedweeks at Daytona.

Today, seven drivers – Chase Elliott (2012), Kyle Larson (2012), Corey LaJoie (2011-12), Daniel Suarez (2011-12), Ryan Blaney (2012), Erik Jones (2014) and Matt DiBenedetto (2011) – will all start in the Great American Race with Elliott starting from the pole position for the second consecutive year.

The program continues to grow and develop new talent each year with classes that range from nine the first season to 11 drivers this year.

According to Senior Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer Jill Gregory the program is meeting its projected objectives.

"The goal of the NASCAR Next program is to create visibility for young drivers who have shown talent and intangibles to climb the NASCAR ladder,” said Gregory. “And several NASCAR Next graduates — including Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney, along with rookies Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones — will compete in this Sunday’s Daytona 500, which is our sport’s biggest stage.

“We’re proud of these rising stars, along with several others who have achieved success in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and we look forward to watching their careers grow. NASCAR’s future is very bright.”

Suarez and Elliott have also won NASCAR Xfinity Series championships with Larson capturing his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory last year.

In Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, NASCAR Next graduates Noah Gragson, Ben Rhodes, John Hunter Nemecheck and Brett Moffitt all competed in the season opener.

Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race featured former program participants Darrell Wallace Jr., William Byron and Cole Custer and Matt Tifft, who returned to action late last season after brain surgery.

 Jones and Suarez also competed in the Saturday afternoon event.

The program is not designed to guarantee a driver a ride in a NASCAR national series, but if they land in a national series ride, they should be better prepared to help promote NASCAR and also give their sponsors value from the skills they’ve learned by participating in the program.

They'll also have more opportunities to meet with members of the press that should also help the industry as a whole - and especially the fans - learn more about these drivers while they compete in NASCAR’s national series.

The current NASCAR Next class features an international flavor with Alon Day, the first driver from Israel to be a part of the class, along with Canadian Gary Klutt who participates in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.

Julia Landauer, the lone female of the class, competes in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West along with defending champion NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion and current class member Todd Gilliland.

Some drivers are pulling double duty in NASCAR initiatives as Collin Cabre is also a member of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program.

Later today all eyes will be on the seven graduates who've made it to NASCAR's top level and while Suarez became the program’s first graduate to win a national series title last fall with his NASCAR Xfinity Series title, maybe one of the seven can make history and become the first member of the program to win the Daytona 500.
