Denny Hamlin, who had been leading the Power Rankings, dropped to second after getting shuffled back late in the Daytona 500 and being involved in a crash. Ross Chastain also made waves with his performance at Daytona, crashing on the final lap while jockeying for the win.

Kyle Busch had a typical Daytona performance, leading laps but ultimately finishing in 12th place. Ryan Blaney struggled with crashes in both the duels and the 500 but showed promise with laps led. Christopher Bell proved he is more than just lucky with a third-place finish at Daytona and a win in his duel.

Kyle Larson had a decent 11th place finish at Daytona, while Alex Bowman and Joey Logano both had strong showings, with Bowman finishing second and Logano leading the most laps before crashing out.

Several drivers are on the verge of breaking into the top 10, including Chris Buescher, Chase Elliott, Ty Gibbs, Tyler Reddick, Martin Truex Jr., and Bubba Wallace.

Overall, the Daytona 500 has shaken up the NASCAR Power Rankings, with William Byron now leading the pack and a number of drivers showing promise for the rest of the season.
