Defending race winner Grant Enfinger has performed well at this track the last few years and Friday shouldn’t be an exception.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Waltrip will only race in one event in 2017. He has a one-off deal with Premium Motorsports in the season-opening Daytona 500. This will be the final start of Waltrip's very colorful career.
Waltrip will only race part-time this season. He will field a car for the season-opening Daytona 500, but anything beyond that is entirely up in the air.
The boss at Michael Waltrip Racing will step in for another part-time schedule in the upcoming season. Waltrip made four starts in the No. 55 Toyota last season, mostly on the super speedways, and picked up one Top-10 finish in the Daytona summer race. He will run a similar three-race schedule in 2013 which will include the Daytona summer race once again and both Talladega events. This wily veteran driver has incredible super speedway racing skill, as his four restrictor-plate victories show. Waltrip is always worth a spot start in the weekly lineup leagues in the Daytona and Talladega events.
Waltrip jumps from DEI and the #15 to Bill Davis Racing and the #55. He brings primary sponsor NAPA with him to the new team. The 2006 season holds a lot of mystery for this team, but we don't think Waltrip will be improved from his 2005 campaign.

Daytona 500 Plans Proceeding
It looks like Waltrip will run the Daytona 500 for Premium Motorsports, probably in the No. 55 Toyota, jayski.com reports.
Will Race in the Daytona 500
Two-time Daytona 500 champion Waltrip announced that he will compete in this year's season-opening NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event as driver of the BK Racing No. 83 Toyota, NASCAR.com reports.
Wednesday's second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice brought the first major accident of Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway. Ty Dillon's No. 95 Cheerios Chevy spewed oil on the track, the result of an oil cooler cracked along the weld. The resulting chain reaction crash that played out caught up Waltrip's No. 83 Toyota and will force him into a backup car for Thursday night's Can-Am Duel 150, NASCAR Wire Service reports.
