I came up with an idea that worked greatly in other circuits, but never tried on Daytona. Try to make a HUGE havoc, in the first lap, if possible, and then make a full lap at your maximum speed. Probably, if the havoc was big enough, there will still be 5 cars there to you for pass up :D Good luck ;)
