1.

Ba'al ha'Turim: Because David, who will descend from Nachshon, will be blessed with six (the Gematriya of Vav) Berachos. 1

2.

Da'as Zekeinim: I found written that it hints to six 2 matters that began that day - Kehunah, [Korbanos of] the Nesi'im, Korbanos, months, [years] from Yetzi'as Egypt 3 , and the Isur of Bamos.

3.

Da'as Zekeinim: It hints to six Tzadikim who will descend from Nachshon, and the 'Vav' in "v'Korbano" is to prevent Nachshon from becoming conceited (refer to 7:13:1:1,3).
