What to expect

With Daytona in the rearview mirror, it’s time to set true expectations for the 2021 season. Homestead kicks off a four-race tour of intermediate tracks — the type of high-speed, aerodynamically sensitive tracks that make up more than half the schedule.

Of course, we expect the usual suspects to make some noise — the Ryan Luza, Keegan Leahy and Nick Ottinger types — but 11 rookies are ready to shake up the party, too. iRacing Pro Series champ Isaac Gann closed out his championship season over the winter with a win at Homestead, so he’s one of the drivers we’re watching in this week’s Power Rankings.

How to watch

Round 2 of the season airs live at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
