    Denny Hamlin has won the last two Daytona 500's, and three of the last five. If he wins the 2021 one he'll become the first driver in history to win it three times in a row. And he'll also become tied for 2nd most all-time wins.

    Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney with Hamlin are the three favorites to win but really, in my mind, it's Hamlin and then everyone else. What do you think this does to his legacy, if he does win three straight? Does this put him in the conversation of best racer of all time? Is he already there? If not, what else does he have to do?

    I'd love to see Hamlin win. Not just because I think he's probably the best driver on the road right now, but because it's always fun to watch those dynasty runs. I think he'll win this one too.

    I would have to say it most definitely puts him in the running for best racer ever. That's if he actually pulls it off, which I think he has a really good chance of doing so.

    I can't help but think a win would cement him as one of the best racers of all time. How could it not?!

    Also - what a wild crash at the beginning of the race. What in the world were they all thinking driving so aggressively when everyone knew a storm that would delay the race for awhile was imminent?! It makes no sense to me.
