Last year’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 was won by Michael Waltrip, who beat Elliott Sadler across the finish line for the modest $73,000 payday. Clay Rogers, Miguel Paludo, and Kyle Buschrounded out the Top 5 drivers at that Truck Series stop at Daytona.
Jennifer Jo Cobb, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Ricky Carmichael, James Buescher, and Matt Craftonrounded out the Top 10 at that race at Daytona International Speedway, while Johnny Sauterended up in 17th place, and Austin Dillon finished back in 20th.

Buescher finished in third place in the standings last year, 29 points back of Dillon, while Ron Hornaday was 50 points behind in fourth place; Hornaday ended up in 28th place at last year’s NextEra Energy Resources 250.
