NASCAR is back in the spring at the Darlington Raceway. It’s good to see two stops at the Lady in Black again and this one being run under the daytime conditions. Darlington isn’t an easy track to win at, so that’s why the best of the best are the ones to beat. But, if you get an off chance of a sleeper, these are the ones to watch.
Alex Bowman (+2000)
Worth a risk. He’s already a winner this season and had 2 top six finishes in 3 Darlington starts last year.
Kurt Busch (+3500)
Busch has five top eight finishes in his last six Darlington starts. He’s a veteran needing of a good finish at Darlington could be the spot.
Tyler Reddick (+4000)
This track was made for Reddick. Running the high line right up against the wall. He was strong in Homestead on a similar track back in February and Reddick had a top 10 in the day race last May at the Lady in Black too. RCR enters this weekend on the heels of both drivers scoring top 10’s in two consecutive races now.
Aric Almirola (+8000)
Almirola, was 12th, 7th and 9th respectively at Darlington last year so why not risk him here?
Erik Jones (+8000)
Why not? Jones won the Southern 500 in 2019 and was also eighth and fifth respectively back in May of last year. Furthermore, Jones was fifth and eighth respectively in his first two Darlington starts as well.
