Who will win the Daytona 500?
The 2014 Daytona 500 gets underway this Sunday. Rookie Austin Dillon won the pole, but will face some tough competition from last year's winner and six-time Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, as well as from Joe Gibbs Racing's Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch. Who's your favorite heading into Sunday? How will Danica Patrick fare? Cast your votes below!
Jimmie Johnson wins at Daytona

Our analysts have Matt Kenseth as the driver with the best shot of taking Johnson down, but will it be déjà vu all over again when the 2013 Chase is finally over?
