NASCAR fan Colin White is looking forward to watching Sunday’s Daytona 500.

The Devils play in Carolina the night before, but fly back to New Jersey after the game.

Racing aficionados may already know about some of the rule changes and new scoring systems NASCAR have instituted for this year. White’s interested to see what those will bring in the race season ahead.

“The drafting is going to be a lot different this year,” White said. “That’s why they made the front ends smaller on the cars, so that you couldn’t draft three cars long. Now it’s two cars. The third car will have to work a little harder and could overheat a little bit more. That’s probably the biggest change.”

A Tony Stewart fan, White is looking for the No. 14 car to take the checkered flag.

“I just like his attitude and the way he drives,” White said.

White's is one of three Devils predictions for the Daytona 500 currently featured on SI.com. Martin Brodeur and Jason Arnott also weighed in with their race picks.
