Kwik Trip 250 Chase Elliot

Kwik Trip 250 Predictions

Chase Elliott Looks for Second Straight Cup Victory at Road America

It appears Chase Elliot is about to regain his dominance on road courses. Coming off his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season last Sunday at Nashville Superspeedway, Elliott edged Chase Briscoe for the pole position during time trials for Sunday’s Kwik Trip 250 at Road America.

Trackhouse Racing’s Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez snagged wins in the first two road course events of the season, at Circuit of the Americas and Sonoma Raceway, but neither had a good qualifying run on Saturday. Chastain will start 12th on Sunday and Suarez 17th.

That leaves the door open for Elliott, who has accumulated seven of his 15 Cup wins on road courses. In fact, Elliott is third on the all-time list for road course wins in the series, behind only Jeff Gordon with nine and Tony Stewart with eight.

Elliott is the defending winner at Road America, where the Cup Series ran last year for the first time since 1956.

Accordingly, we’re backing Elliott at +400 to become the first three-time winner in the Cup Series on Sunday.

Chase Briscoe Has Excellent Speed in His No. 14 Stewart-Haas Ford

Already a winner this season, Chase Briscoe qualified second for Sunday’s Kwik Trip 250 and was sorely disappointed with his effort.

I did a terrible job, Briscoe said after time trials. I was more sideways than straight. I feel like I gave up six-tenths easily in different corners. My team definitely deserves the pole, but the driver doesn’t deserve the pole. I have to clean that up.

Should Elliott falter or suffer an unforeseen calamity, we favor Briscoe to take up the slack. At +800, the price is right for the 27-year-old from Indiana.

Despite Sonoma Run, Michael McDowell Is Underrated Again This Week

Three weeks ago, we urged you to bet on Michael McDowell to finish top-three and top-five in the road course race at Sonoma. He did both, coming home third for a nice payday.

Despite his road racing prowess, and despite a strong sixth-place qualifying effort on Saturday, McDowell is a +2000 long shot to win and +450 to finish in the top three at Road America.

We think the former Daytona 500 champion has the car to finish in the top three on Sunday, so we advise making that bet at +450. And as a companion to that wager, we like Denny Hamlin, who starts 14th, to run top-three at +525.
