At the onset of the coronavirus, a pause was the necessity to be flexible. NASCAR has led the way for all sports in that regard. Changing its schedule on the fly has been executed flawlessly. Further, those alterations made for better racing. This week is a great example of turning lemons into lemonade. Losing the popular Watkins Glen race hurt the entire racing community. However, NASCAR found a phenomenal solution. In place of “The Glen” is the Daytona road course. In the modern era, there hasn’t been NASCAR betting action at this venue. Which makes the ultimate handicapping challenge!

Go Bowling 235 Road Course Race from Daytona Overview
Daytona Speedway is world-renowned for its signature event. Specifically, the Daytona 500 is the biggest online betting annual event in racing. Another race held around the Fourth of July is usually held at Daytona too. COVID-19 has sparked creative thinking that otherwise may not have occurred. Also, factoring was that Watkins Glen was canceled from the 2020 schedule. Daytona’s permanent road course will be used for the first time in the modern era.
In sum, the course is 3.57 miles in length. A total of 65 laps will be run with 15 laps in stages one and two. And then 35 laps will be run for the final stage.
