Rain shortened practice and qualifying while postponing the race from Saturday night till Sunday. Quite frankly, rain played havoc all weekend long at Daytona International Speedway and that trend continued on Sunday afternoon as the race have a half-hour delay at lap nine for rain, before being called with 109 of 160 laps complete due to heavy rain.

At the time of the caution, Aric Almirola had put the No. 43 United States Air Force Ford out front of the field and would pick up the victory with the race being official due to being past halfway.

With a pair of big wrecks, there is no telling how good or bad each person’s picks will be as it’s simply the luck of the draw.
