Daniel Suarez was the top-finishing rookie in the Daytona 500, but not by much. He finished 29th, one spot ahead of Ty Dillon.

All three Rookie of the Year candidates crashed in one of several superspeedway melees and fantasy players will have to wait for the upcoming unrestricted, intermediate speedways to tell who is going to have an early advantage.

Kevin Harvick won the second segment of the Daytona 500, but he was unable to capitalize on his stage win and earn maximum points because he was caught up in a lap-129, "Big One" crash.

Chase Elliott was leading the Daytona 500 with three laps remaining until his car ran out of gasoline; he dropped to 14th—the next-to-last car on the lead lap.

This was likely Elliott’s best opportunity to date to score a victory and he was not happy with the outcome. Elliott apparently declined to be interviewed before he left the track. He managed to stay out of major incidents, however, and that is better than he performed at Daytona as a rookie. Now Elliott will head to a pair of unrestricted, intermediate speedways where he has had his greatest success.

Keep an eye on him in the next several races, but fantasy owners will want to wait until the series hits the short tracks before they consider starting him.

Michael Waltrip did not win in his final race, but he ended his career in style with an eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500.

This was the 133rd top-10 of his career in 784 starts. Most of Waltrip’s success came on restrictor-plate, superspeedways or the faster unrestricted, intermediate tracks. He has been an uneven value on plate tracks since retiring from fulltime racing, but it was great to see him finish on such a high note.
