First off this is a GPP week only. There will be wrecks this week as there aways is at Daytona. It is a Restrictor Plate race which in simple terms means all cars will be going the same speed basically. At every RP race we always expect to see large wrecks and a numerous amount of cars to not finish this race.
Aric Almirola and Erik Jones should be two of the higher owned guys this week. Both are starting 25th or worse (26th, 29th) and are both sub 9k (DK), even though you should not worry too much about salary this week.
Paul Menard and Daniel Suarez starting 30th, 32nd should be the highest owned on the slate. Paul Menard finished 6th at Daytona earlier this year while Suarez had a DNF. I still think Suarez is in play this week as i do with most drivers starting 25th or worse.
This week you do NOT have to worry about salary. Place Differential is a major factor at Plate races.
I will go into more detail about strategy on todays pod cast. If you miss it you can always rewatch it. They are very similar to what we saw earlier this year if you want to scroll back to 2/18/18's article where i break it down in more. Good Luck everyone.
