Joey Logano droves No. 22 Ford Mustang

He also earned top-five finishes in one-third of the races on the calendar. Therefore, he is among those who have the best 2020 Daytona 500 odds of 11.00 at the Unibet Sportsbook.
Brad Keselowski finished eighth overall in 2019 so his 2020 Daytona 500 odds are high
Brad Keselowski drove the No. 2 Ford for Team Penske to eighth place in the final 2019 Cup Series standings. His 2019 campaign included 13 top fives and 19 top 10s. Besides, he led over 1,000 laps for the third time in his career. In has been a decade for Keselowski at NASCAR’s top level. Thus, he deserves to remain among the top drivers behind the wheel with 11.00 odds to win Daytona 500 in February.
Odds on Denny Hamlin indicate to win Daytona 500 again in 2020
The 2019 Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin will be looking forward to defending his title at 11.00 for Joe Gibbs Racing. He sealed the race in early 2019 for the second time in three years. He had a great year winning six races, his second-highest win total behind his eight-win in 2010 season. The driver of the No. 11 FedEx Camry had a great season even if he ultimately finished four overall.
Hamlin reminded everyone of his natural talent behind the wheel. His second win of Daytona 500 was a groundbreaking record. He is the only driver to win it more than once after 2010. Will he do it again in 2020? It is highly possible according to online sportsbooks in the US. Until then, just check the list of the best Nascar movies to practice rooting.
Chase Elliott scored the best record in 2019 as for now
Chase Elliott who drives No. 9 for Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolets has finished 10th in the final 2019 NASCAR Cup Series standings. He won three races in 2019, finished 11 top fives, 15 top tens, and four poles. Although he suffered from a lack of consistency, his 2019 campaign was the best record in his career as for now. There is no doubt that if Elliott finds speed again in 2020, he will be a championship contender, and that might start with Daytona 500 at 11.00.
