NASCAR announced several changes at the beginning of the season, one of which was a new "overtime line" and unlimited attempts to end the race under green. The line will vary by track, according to NBC Sports and if the field has not passed the line, the field will have to attempt another start.

It was widely believed that Kevin Harvick intentionally spun Trevor Bayne at the end of last fall’s Talladega SuperSpeedway race to draw a race-ending caution that allowed him to advance to the Championship Round. This rule keeps that from happening again. The rule also increases the likelihood of a late-race shuffling of the deck on restrictor-plate, superspeedways, which makes them even more of a wild card for fantasy players.

Jamie McMurray will make his 10th start in the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona driving the Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) #1 McDonald’s Chevy SS.

In his previous nine starts, McMurray has a best start of second in 2014 and a best finish of second two times (2009 and 2011). He became eligible for the invitation only exhibition race after qualifying as one of the 16 drivers in the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

In only one previous start in the non-points Sprint Unlimited exhibition race at Daytona, Kyle Larson has a finish of fifth after the random draw gave him a 25th place start.

While he does have one win at Daytona, in a sportscar at the 2015 Rolex 24, Larson’s luck has not been as good in the Sprint Cup series, finishing on the lead lap in only one of his four starts.-CGR

After wrecking both superspeedway cars in the open test less than a month ago, Kimmel Racing had to go into scramble mode to prepare a car in time for Saturday’s 53rd running of the Lucas Oil 200 Driven By General Tire at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

Today, the Clarksville, Indiana-based team scrambled right to the top of the leader board in final practice Friday morning. Will Kimmel, in the No. 69 E3 Spark Plugs-SO Contracting-SCCY Chevrolet, circled the 2.5-mile superspeedway in 47.543 seconds, for an average speed of 189.302 mph. The speed that Kimmel put up was the exact same speed that rookie Chase Briscoe put up as the fastest speed in practice Thursday. Kimmel’s career-best finish at Daytona was third in 2012. Briscoe, fastest in practice Thursday, was second on the charts at 189.266 mph in the No. 77 Cunningham Motorsports Dodge.-ARCA Racing

Lira Motorsports welcomes a new face to the 2016 season, a face that is recognizable in the Camping World Truck Series after his rookie debut and a top 20 finish in the season points last year.

Korbin Forrister, a prodigy who started racing dirt tracks at a very young age, is up for the challenge of training with and competing against some of the biggest names in NASCAR. On January 29, Korbin Forrister made a powerful career move and signed on with Lira Motorsports. For Forrister to sit down with Carlos Lira and find they share a similar vision for the future made quite an impression on the young, motivated driver. He’ll be running in the Camping World Truck Series (#59 Ford F-150) in Daytona, Atlanta, and Martinsville to start off the season, followed by a race in the ARCA series at Talladega.

Germain Racing will enter the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS in Saturday night's 75-lap Sprint Unlimited.

Casey Mears wheeled the GEICO Chevy to a fourth-place finish last February in the team's first-ever appearance in the pre-season, exhibition race. "With no testing in the off season it's great to knock the cobwebs off and get a feel for what we will need in the 500," said Mears who will be making his fourth Sprint Cup Series career start in the Sprint Unlimited.As it did last year, chassis 387 will serve as the No. 13 GEICO Chevy SS for Mears. The car was formerly the primary chassis for superspeedway races before being moved to the Sprint Unlimited duties in 2015.-Player Management International

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is head and shoulders above the competition on restrictor-plate, superspeedways both in terms of average finishes, number of victories, top-fives, and top-10s. He will be the starter of choice for most players this week.

Junior has 10 victories on this track type in 64 starts and will be the best value if he scores a 26th top-five—but players looking for an early advantage may want to look elsewhere. Earnhardt will be on so many rosters that he will not allow players to differentiate their rosters, so they will neither gain nor lose ground on the competition by starting the No. 88.

In his new ride with HScott Motorsports, Clint Bowyer should be this year’s best dark horse for the Daytona 500. In 40 career starts on plate tracks, he has the second-best career average finish with a 15.05.

Equally impressive, Bowyer has been consistently strong of both restrictor-plate, superspeedways. He has an average finish of 14.9 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and 15.2 at Daytona International Speedway.
