Chase Elliott vs Tyler Reddick—Who’s the Real Road Course King?

Before the 2022 season and the introduction of the new Next Gen race car into the NASCAR Cup Series, Chase Elliott was the unrivaled King of the Road Courses.

This season, however, Elliott is winless in four road course starts. Ross Chastain won a thriller at Circuit of the Americas, Daniel Suarez triumphed at Sonoma and Tyler Reddick took checkered flags at Road America and the Indianapolis Grand Prix Course.

Like Elliott, all are Chevrolet drivers. Meanwhile, Elliott, the series leader, has had to content himself with four victories on more conventional tracks.

Seven of Elliott’s 17 career victories have come on road courses—two at Watkins Glen—and we don’t think he’ll be shut out on those circuits this year.

That’s why we’re backing the 2020 series champion to win the Go Bowling at the Glen at +500 via DraftKings. Reddick (+600) may be the King for now, but he’ll be dethroned by Sunday night.

Martin Truex Jr. vs Ryan Blaney—Who Gets the Last Cup Playoff Spot

With two races left in the NASCAR Cup Series regular season, Martin Truex Jr. and Ryan Blaney are competing for the final spot in the postseason Playoff.

Entering Sunday’s race at Watkins Glen, Blaney leads Truex for the 16th Playoff berth by 26 points. The 15 drivers ahead of Blaney in the Playoff standings all have won at least one race. Blaney and Truex are winless.

Given his record at Watkins Glen—a victory and seven top fives in 15 starts—you might expect Truex to have an edge on Sunday. Unfortunately, Truex individually and the Toyota drivers as a whole haven’t been able to solve the road courses with the Next Gen car.

Both Truex and Blaney are offered at long odds via DraftKings Sportsbook, +2000 and +1200, respectively. Though both will be highly motivated by their quest to make the Playoff, neither is a good bet to post a strong finish.

After Breaking Long Drought, Kevin Harvick Goes for Third Straight Win

On August 7 at Michigan International Speedway, Kevin Harvick broke a 65-race winless streak with a victory at the two-mile track.

If you’ll recall, we picked Harvick to win that race at +2500, and we sincerely hope you parlayed our advice into a huge payday.

Harvick followed that win with a victory last Sunday at Richmond Raceway, and he’ll try to extend the streak to three straight on Sunday at Watkins Glen.

Harvick now has 60 career victories, tied with Kyle Busch for most among active drivers and ninth all-time. Though Harvick won at Watkins Glen in 2006, he has but two triumphs on road courses—in 53 starts, no less.

Take it from us. Harvick’s winning streak will end on Sunday. We think there are much better bets on the board: AJ Allmendinger to run top-three at +400 and Chris Buescher (who was second on the Sonoma Road Course) to run top-five at +350.
