BY HARRY GAGNON
Well, it was another wild week in NASCAR as second year driver Christopher Bell captured his 1st NASCAR victory on the Daytona Road Course. Favorite Chase Elliott looked like the winner for 90% of the race but we all know that can mean nothing by the time the dust settles and that was exactly the case on Sunday. As for my picks that all but one got messed up in the melee of events at the end of the race so hopefully we can get back to some sort of normalcy in Miami.
HARRY'S PICK 6's
3-3 WEEK 1 +$102
1-5 WEEK 2 -$715
HARRY'S MIAMI HOMESTEAD PICK 6
DIXIE VODKA 400
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28
-140 CAR NUMBER WINNER OVER 10.5
In this prop you are getting 3 time winner Denny Hamlin and 2 time champ Kyle Busch. Of the 9 wins by current drivers in Miami Homestead history only the 1 car of Kurt Busch and the 4 of Harvick have past wins here.
-125 DENNY HAMLIN OVER CHASE ELLIOTT
Hamlin has 393 career lead laps in 16 races here and after two races on the circuit Chase Elliott has had major problems closing in both.
-135 KYLE BUSCH OVER RYAN BLANEY
Blaney got out to a nice start last season but that is far from the case after 2 races in Daytona. Kyle Busch in 9 career races has the most laps led in Miami amongst current drivers with 465.
-110 MARTIN TRUEX JR OVER KEVIN HARVICK
It is always risky going against 45 year old Kevin Harvick but Truex is a guy who has won here before and has 2 top 5's here since February of 2018.
-130 JOEY LOGANO OVER BRAD KESELOWSKI
Logano with a couple of breaks late could have won last week. Miami is a track that he can post a good finish at especially since in the last 3 races here he has a win and 2 top 5's.
-130 TYLER REDDICK OVER CHRISTOPHER BELL
Reddick was my only winner last week as he nipped Ross Chastain by a single position. In his only race in Miami Reddick posted an impressive 4th place finish. After last week's victory I'm looking for Bell to fall back amongst the big boys and like i said early some normalcy would actually be nice to see after the 2 insane races in Daytona.
