Jeff Burton, and here is why.
The last two Daytona 500 winner both qualified 23rd, the position which Paul Menard qualified this year. I am not quite bold enough to pick Menard to win anything right now.
In 2007, Kevin Harvick in the #29 car qualified 29th and won the race. This year Burton qualified the #31 car 31st.
RCR always produces strong restrictor plate cars and Harvick proved that again in the Bud Shootout. Burton is a sage veteran who knows how to work the draft and get to the front. I know this ain't much of a reason to pick him, but I pick Jeff Burton to be this years Daytona 500 champion.
