Don’t worry, we didn’t have to wait too long for some more NASCAR DFS. NASCAR’s new schedule due to COVID-19 has allowed them to experiment with some mid-week races. The cars and drivers are right back to Darlington for the second cup race in four days. Sunday’s race was great and we saw Kevin Harvick ultimately end up winning the race. Just like Sunday’s race, there will be no practice or qualifying. Instead, the lineup will be set by having drivers who finished 1-20 in Sunday’s race inverted. Followed by drivers 21-40 who will start where they finished Sunday. Let’s dive right into my top drivers for Wednesday night’s race.
It’s been almost two full months since we had a real NASCAR race. The Pro Invitational Series did a suitable job of filling the hole left by the absence.

It was a Daytona 500 that offered plenty of memories, including a photo-finish victory by Denny Hamlin, along with a visit by President Trump to kick the new season off. Good news on the Ryan Newman front. Two days after being involved in that scary wreck on Monday, with people waiting for any good news. Newman was walking out of the hospital hand in hand with his two children. It was announced this week, Ross Chastain will fill in for Newman while he completes his recovery.
It took two overtime restarts to get finished, but Denny Hamlin would manage to come through with a toughly fought win edging out Chase Elliot. Hamlin would get a nice assist from teammate Kyle Busch to get him the lead he needed in the final green white. Busch, Kurt Busch, William Byron, Martin Truex Jr, Eric Jones, Clint Bowyer, Harvick, and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top 10. Elliot manages to qualify for the round of eight after just managing to beat out Brad Keselowski by three points.
