The Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series enters the Last race at the Round of 16 when the drivers test their Abilities from the first race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course for the Bank of America Roval 400.
Going to the weekend it is Kyle Busch as the favorite at +300.
BetOnline has Busch as a favorite in +300 followed closely by Martin Truex Jr. in +500, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick equally at +850 and Chase Elliott at +950 to round out the top five.
Busch has been competitive in street races lately There are a whole lot of question marks heading in this first-ever Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course, but with the name of becoming an inaugural winner at stake, there is no uncertainty Kyle Busch can do anything to catch the checkered flag. The Nevada native has secured his spot in the Round of 12 with his success last weekend at Richmond.
Taking a look at the two most typical road courses that NASCAR visits, in Watkins Glen and Sonoma, Busch has functioned well at both of these races, landing within the top 10 in 12 of the last 13 races at Watkins Glen, including 2 wins. At Sonoma, the 33-year-old has finished in the top 10 from the previous four races with a single triumph but found himself out of the top 10 in the six races prior. On the season, Busch is connected with Kevin Harvick with seven wins, that’s the most by any driver, also in +300 he’s almost always a powerful play.
Could Chase Elliott return to Victory Lane?
The last road race at the NASCAR program was Watkins Glen and the winner of that race was 22-year-old Chase Elliott. That was the first victory in the young career of Elliott and he had a fourth-place finish at Sonoma in June. Prior to this recent victory, however, that the Georgia native finished outside the top 10 in three of four combined races at Watkins Glen and Sonoma.
A fantastic performance is needed by Elliott because he holds only a 10-point lead over that cutoff spot ahead of the Round of 12 and in +950 and with current success on road courses, he might be the one to grab the checkered flag.
Is Daniel Suarez because of his first career win?
Daniel Suarez is still looking for his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory as he nears the end of his next full-time season. The Mexico native was just OK in his two career starts at Sonoma, ending 16th and 15th in those races. But, Suarez has done much better at Watkins Glen, ending in third once and fourth in the latest running there in August.
In the previous race at Watkins Glen, when Suarez finished fourth, he started 21st and had to pick his way through the field. The 26-year-old failed to create the NASCAR playoffs therefore a victory this weekend would simply be a spoiler movement and also at +2500 he’s worth a long-shot wager to earn the checkered flag.
