Best 2022 Daytona 500 Predictions

One surprise: The model is high on Kurt Busch, even though he’s a long shot 18-1 in the last NASCAR at Daytona. He is a target for anyone looking for a huge salary. Busch was not on the field for last weekend’s event but should be ready to kick off 2022 with a bang in his first appearance this season. Busch won the Daytona 500 in 2017 but hasn’t finished better than 10th at any event at the track since then. He finished 12th in the 2021 Coke Zero Sugar 400 in his final run on the 2.5-mile course.

The last time Busch finished a NASCAR season without a win was in 2013, and since then he has had no less than six top-10 finishes in a year. A remarkably consistent and competitive rider, he stands as one of the safest long shots in the 2022 Daytona 500 starting lineup. 500 2021 in Talladega.

And a huge shocker: Hamlin, Vegas’ top favorite at 17-2, stumbles wildly and barely cracks the top five. Hamlin finished third in last year’s Cup Series, but that was due to a strong start to the season as he faltered in the streak. After getting nine top five finishes in his first 12 races, he only had 10 top five finishes in his next 24 races.

While Hamlin is a three-time Daytona 500 winner (2016, 2019, 2020), he hasn’t completely dominated the track as you might expect from someone with three wins there. Those were his only three wins at the track in 32 career Cup Series appearances and he finished a disappointing 13th in his last outing at Daytona. Given its low ratings, there are much better values ​​in this open field of the 2022 Daytona 500.
