NASCAR- Cup: Go Bowling 235 Betting Preview

The Daytona International Speedway has played host to many of NASCAR’s most historical events. This weekend will be no different, but it will be historical for a different reason. Instead of driving on the super speedway, this will be the first time that the NASCAR Series will race on the road course at the Daytona International Speedway. The NASCAR Go Bowling 235 will be a history making event.
This Sunday will be the first time that the drivers will get to be on the road course, as there will be no practices prior to the event. The 3.61 mile layout with 14 turns should provide a lot of exciting racing action.

Let’s take a look at some of the NASCAR betting favorites to take home the checkered flag in Sunday’s Go Bowling 235.

Chase Elliott

Elliott excels at road course racing. Elliott will be going for his third straight Go Bowling 235 victory. In his 10 career road course starts, Elliott has won three of them. With the three victories coming in the last five NASCAR road course races, Elliott will have a leg up on the competition. He should be at or near the top of the pack on Sunday.

Martin Truex Jr.

Truex has four career victories on road courses. In his last three road course races, he’s finished in the top 10 in all of them, including one victory and one runner-up finish. Truex hasn’t lived up to expectations this season, only winning one race thus far. He’ll look to take home his second victory of the season.

Kevin Harvick

Harvick has been the best driver on the circuit this season. In his last 13 road course races, Harvick has 11 top 10 finishes, including one win. He has two road course victories in his career. Any time that Harvick has taken the track in 2020, he has been a strong contender. Why would things be any different on Sunday?

Brad Keselowski

Keselowski has never won a road course race, so what better time than now? Keselowski has finished second at Watkins Glen on three different occasions, so even though he’s never won a road course race, he knows how to handle the road courses. He’s had a good season up to this point, and adding a road course victory would make the season that much better.

Clint Bowyer

Bowyer knows how to handle himself on the road courses. He has five top-5 finishes in his last eight road course races, and 12 top-5’s in his career. Bowyer could be a sneaky pick to take home the checkered flag.

Kurt Busch

When it comes to road course racing, Busch is always hanging around the leader. Busch has finished in the top 10 in 12 of his last 15 road course races. Busch hasn’t won a race in a while, so he’d love to break his losing streak on Sunday.

Erik Jones

Jones enjoys road courses. In his seven career road course starts, Jones has five top-10 finishes. Although he has struggled as of late, Jones could be a contender here.
