Here are my DraftKings driver points and price/point predictions for today’s Daytona 500. To predict how many DraftKings points each driver will score today, I plugged my driver rankings for today’s race into my projection model, and the qualifying results/starting lineup. Then, to calculate each driver’s price/point, I simply divided each driver’s price by their predicted points.

The below table lists all drivers running today, and it’s sorted from lowest price/point to highest. If you’re on a small-screen device, scroll the table horizontally with a finger drag to see all the columns.
