Daytona: Round one preview
NASCAR-BUSCH

Daytona Season-Opener Starts Year In High-Banked Style

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Call it the ultimate undercard, the premier preliminary in perhaps all of sports.

The annual NASCAR Busch Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway is the final

"Speedweeks" event before the Daytona 500 and it inevitably stands on its own merit -- both in terms of its field, and its excitement.

Expect more of the same Saturday afternoon, as the ORBITZ 300 will have a mix of NASCAR's biggest names and some of its most promising newer talent, starting with two-time defending champion Tony Stewart (No. 33 Old Spice Chevrolet).

Stewart, also a two-time NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series champion, will drive a Chevy owned by last year's NASCAR Busch Series champion Kevin Harvick and his wife DeLana; Harvick will be in the race as well, driving the No. 21 AutoZone Chevrolet owned by Richard Childress.

Harvick is the series' reigning champion but he won't be defending his title this season.

He plans a limited schedule, sharing the No. 21 with newcomer Timothy Peters, a "graduate" of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, where he raced the previous two seasons.

Harvick-Peters won't be the only intriguing driver combination, which will make for an especially compelling competition for the car owner championship.

Another combo to watch: Todd Kluever and Greg Biffle in the No. 16 3M Ford; Kluever has the honors this week in the No. 16 with Biffle sliding over to Roush Racing's No. 26 Oreo Ford.

Three past winners of the Orbitz 300 are entered in addition to Stewart: Dale Earnhardt Jr. (No. 8 Menards Chevrolet); Matt Kenseth (No. 17 Arby's Ford); and Joe Nemechek (No. 87 NEMCO Chevrolet).

Earnhardt is a three-time winner of the race (2002-04).

Re: Orbitz 300 News And Notes

I can't see any reason to take a short price on either Stewart or Earnhardt jr since this race looks wide open so I am going with a few plays that offer tremendous value I think.

Kyle Busch 22/1  2 units

Busch looked great in the Busch test at Daytona in January when he had some of the top times almost every time he was on the track,todays car placed among the top-10 in each session and was the second-fastest car during the first two morning sessions.I know he can drive on plate tracks the question is will he ever get any drafting help ?

Carl Edwards  20/1 1 unit

Edwards was another driver who looked good in Januarys test and he brings the car that finished 5th in it's last appearance at Daytona.

Clint Bowyer 28/1 1 unit

Bowyer is a very good plate driver when you look at his finishes at Daytona and Talladega,in four Busch Series starts at Daytona Bowyer has a impressive 5.3 starting average and a 6.5 finishing average and has finished outside the top 10 only once.This car ran all three plate races last year and never finished worse than sixth with two top five finishes.If your looking for a live longshot Bowyer is worth a play at 28/1.
