Who’s Hot/ Who’s Not
Austin Dillon: His second career Cup win came in the Daytona 500, and his spot in the 2018 playoffs is secure.
Bubba Wallace: Second place in his first Daytona 500 doesn’t mean he’ll be a Top 10 driver all year long, but it’s an impressive start.
Jimmie Johnson: He crashed three cars in three races at Daytona and finished 38th in the 500 – just finishing at Atlanta is a priority.
Kyle Busch: He took damage early in the 500 and could never get himself all the way back in contention.
