NXS: What to watch for in the Raptor 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway

Austin Hill: For the third time in three seasons Hill has found himself in victory lane in the season opening event at Daytona. Hill will start on the front row this afternoon next to his teammate Jesse Love who for two weeks in a row has won the pole. In four starts at Atlanta, Hill has won twice with three top-five finishes.

Previous winners: Starting in the field today are four previous winners, Hill who will start in second followed by John Hunter Nemechek that will start in third, AJ Allmendinger seventh and Justin Allgaier starting in ninth.

Daytona Rookie of The Race: After a slow start for Shane Van Gisbergen at Daytona, first failing to qualifying for the ARCA race only to enter the event following another team dropping out, Van Gisbergen would get tangled in an early incident just laps into the ARCA race the weekend would get better after starting fifth and finishing 12th in his first attempt in the series.
