NASCAR O’Reilly Auto Parts 253: Preston’s Pick

NASCAR is back in Daytona this afternoon for an epic road-course race at 2:00 PM CST on FOX! Some intriguing betting spots on the board for this race. I have us covered with my pick of the race!

While shopping the lines, listening to NASCAR DFS, and reading up on the track history I found myself in a weird scenario. Two Hendrick Motorsports teammates placed in a Head to Head. I’m talking about Alex Bowman and Kyle Larson.

I love the Chevy’s on road-courses. As most NASCAR fans know Chase Elliott dominates road courses in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. Today Elliott will be trying to make it five straight wins on road-courses. A major feat in the NASCAR Cup Series.

However, my attention will be elsewhere. Alex Bowman is not known for excelling on road-courses in his career. Kyle Larson is one of those drivers that flies under the radar but on race day he goes pedal to the metal! After a difficult 2020 season where he parted ways with his former team (Chip Gnassi Racing), Larson is refocused and due for a breakout season.

Larson has surpassed his starting position in both races he has taken part in this year. Bowman has had the luck of the draw and started first twice already this year but has finished 20th and 35th in both those races.
