There are certain rites of passage in every sport – the symbols, sights and sounds of a legendary event associated with a particularly incredible time of year.
A basketball dribble in March. Soft piano music and azalea bushes from April in Georgia. Cold nights and burning passions of October baseball And, of course, the blistering fury of revving engines amid the endless promise of NASCAR’s new season.
The 64th edition of Daytona 500 on Sunday (2:30 p.m. ET, FOX) will forever have the feel of the biggest moment of the stock car season.

It’s always free to play on the Super 6 app. And to help get you on the road to victory, here are the six questions and some predictions for Daytona.
Which of these drivers will achieve the fastest lap at the end of stage 2?
Alex Bowman, William Byron, Austin Dillon, Joey Logan, Martin Truex Jr.., Denny Hamlin
One of the surefire rules of the 2021 season was to pick Denny Hamlin for a stage win.
Hamlin rode well at Daytona, and he won 10 stages last year, second to the Cup winner Kyle Larson. Of those drivers, Hamlin feels like a good bet. Prediction: Denny Hamlin
Which of these drivers will lead the most laps at the end of stage 2?
ryan blaney, Kyle Busch, Chase ElliotDenny Hamlin, Kevin HarvickNone/tie
Hamlin had the second-most laps led last year in NASCAR with 1,502 laps, behind Larson’s 2,501. But a wild card in this area is Elliott, who was third on this list at 952 and has 126 career rounds that led to his name at Daytona. Prediction: Chase Elliott
How many lead changes will there be by the end of Stage 2?
0-10, 11-20, 21-27, 28-34, 35-41, 42 and more
There were 11 different leaders in last year’s Daytona 500 for 22 lead changes during the overall race. The end of races of this type tend to be calmer than the first since the number of cars is reduced… until the inevitable Big One.
Still, expect double-digit lead changes on lap 135. Prediction: 11-20
Where will the poleman run at the end of stage 2?
1st-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, 7th-8th, 9th-10th, 11th or higher
Larson sits on pole for the 500-mile race, and he is undoubtedly one of the biggest stories heading into Sunday. One thing that made him so special last year was how consistent he was, staying close to the front in almost every race.
In this sense, choosing it to maintain its marching order or fall back fair slightly feels like the safe bet once again. Prediction: 3rd-4th
Which manufacturer will have the most cars in the Top 10 of Stage 2?
Toyota, Chevy, Ford, Tie
Seven Fords finished in the Top 10 in qualifying this week. This lets you know they are ready for that race. While Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. try Toyota, it looks like a Ford week. Prediction: Ford
Which driver will finish best in Stage 2?
Chris Buescher, Harrison Burton, Michael McDowell, Ricky Stenhouse Jr.., Daniel Suarez, Bubba Wallace
Many seem to forget that McDowell won this race last year – a reminder of how often someone can come out of nowhere and win this thing.
However, in Stage 2, we’ll take on Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to finish the best. There were times last year when Stenhouse appeared poised for a big breakout in 2021, and we’re betting he’s off to a strong start to the season. Prediction: Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
