The Granite Stripe prepares for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.  It is the final race before New Hampshire Motor Speedway gets in on the 2013 season!

Listen to the Granite Stripe Podcast (2013, Ep. 20): Kentucky Highlights, Daytona Preview.

After listening to PRN's highlights from Kentucky, Jonathan and Dalana debate whether Kenseth or Johnson is the title favorite, then make their picks for Daytona.
