Favorites to Win the 2020 NextEra Energy 250

1. Johnny Sauter

A three-time winner at Daytona in the trucks, Sauter will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2019 season.

The ThorSport driver failed to win more than one race for the first time since 2015.

His sixth place in the standings, meanwhile, was Sauter’s worst points finish since 2012.

While he retired from last year’s NextEra Energy 250, Sauter had a fairly dominant run at Daytona in the six previous years.

The 2016 champion scored three wins, added another top 3 finish and led the most laps on two occasions.

Despite an early playoff mishap, which saw both Sauter and Grant Enfinger eliminated with engine failures, ThorSport still won the championship in 2019.

Driving for one of the series’ top teams for another year, Sauter could get back on the right track from round 1.

2. Gran Enfinger

Speaking of ThorSport, Grant Enfinger should also be among the top contenders for the win at Daytona.

Enfinger scored two wins at the superspeedway while driving in the ARCA Series.

He has made four starts at Daytona in the trucks and has never finished outside the top 20.

Enfinger scored the pole for the 2016 race, his first series start in nearly four years.

He finished second in last year’s chaotic race.

It’s also worth remembering that Enfinger is a very good superspeedway racer.

His first Truck Series win came at Talladega in 2016, while driving a part-time schedule for GMS Racing.

Despite not winning a race in 2019, Enfinger still scored two pole positions and won the regular-season championship.

3. Austin Hill

The defending NextEra Energy 250 winner, Austin Hill is poised for a great 2020 season.

Driving for Hattori Racing, Hill had a breakout year in 2019.

After scoring his maiden series victory at Daytona, he added three pole-positions and three more victories over the course of the year.

After narrowly missing out on the Championship 4, Hill went on to win the season finale at Homestead, building up momentum for the new year.

Hill has good results at superspeedways, having finished 11th at Daytona in 2018 and 10th at Talladega the same year.

4. Christian Eckes

The reigning ARCA champion, Christian Eckes is considered one of the sports’ future stars.

After impressing in a limited schedule last year, the youngster moves up the ladder with a full-time ride for 2020.

Eckes will once again drive for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

The youngster scored three top 5 finishes in eight starts, including two results inside the top 3.

Eckes won the pole position for the ARCA and the Truck Series races in 2019.

He crashed out of the Truck race but finished a solid fourth in the ARCA event.

The young star looks ready to take the next step in 2020, and it could very well start with a win at the season opener.
