PROS is an acronym for Projected Ranking Of Strength. What’s projected in this post is how good drivers were the last time they raced at Daytona (2018 Daytona 500). It shows you what ten drivers were subjectively the strongest last race.

In fantasy NASCAR you can’t just look at a drivers finish position and believe that’s how good they were. Things happen in races (wrecks, penalties, etc.) and our PROS Rankings take unfortunate circumstances into account. Our exclusive Scouting Report will help you understand our rankings.
