The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series enters the final race in the Round of 16 when the drivers test their skills in the first race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course for the Bank of America Roval 400.
Going to the weekend it’s Kyle Busch as the favorite at +300.
BetOnline has Busch as a favorite in +300 followed by Martin Truex Jr. at +500, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick equally at +850 and Chase Elliott in +950 to round out the top five.
Busch has been aggressive in road races recently There are a whole lot of question marks heading into this first-ever Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race in the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course, however with the title of being an inaugural winner at stake, there is no doubt Kyle Busch will do anything to catch the checkered flag. The Nevada native has already secured his place in the Round of 12 with his success last weekend at Richmond.
Taking a look at the two most common road paths 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 their past 13 races at Watkins Glen, including 2 wins. At Sonoma, the 33-year-old has finished in the top 10 in the previous four races with one win but found himself out of the top 10 at the six races ahead. On the season, Busch is connected together with Kevin Harvick with seven wins, which is the most by any driver, also in +300 he’s always a powerful play.
Can Chase Elliott return to Victory Lane?
The last road race in the NASCAR schedule was Watkins Glen and the winner of that race was 22-year-old Chase Elliott. That was the first success at the young career of Elliott and that he had a fourth-place finish at Sonoma in June. Prior to this recent success, however, the Georgia native finished outside the top 10 in three of four joint races at Watkins Glen and Sonoma.
A good performance is needed by Elliott because he holds just a 10-point guide over that cutoff place to advance to the Round of 12 and at +950 and with current success on street courses, he might be the one to catch 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 the second fulltime season. The Mexico native was just OK in his two career starts at Sonoma, ending 16th and 15th in these races. However, Suarez has performed better at Watkins Glen, finishing in third fourth and once at the latest running there in August.
In the previous race at Watkins Glen, when Suarez finished fourth, he started 21st and had to choose his way through the field. The 26-year-old didn’t make the NASCAR playoffs so a victory this weekend would just be a spoiler movement and at +2500 he’s well worth a long-shot wager to earn the checkered flag.
