Road Course Racing, BABY!

NASCAR Go Bowling 235 Preview

Nascar is roaring into Daytona to take on its road course for the FIRST time ever. When you hear Daytona, don’t you think immediately of fast speed and wrecks leaving us with a spectacular finish? This isn’t going to be that race. It is going to be fascinating and exciting, but different.

I think I’m just as excited for this race as the drivers. I’ve read about Mario Andretti, Al Unser, Scott Dixon, and A.J. Foyt running this road race. Notice I didn’t name Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex, Jr., Denny Hamlin, and Chase Elliott. That’s because they haven’t ever run this course in its 61-year existence with Nascar stock cars.

The Daytona Road Course is a 3.61-mile, 14-turn road course. Most drivers competing don’t have much experience on the road courses period and definitely not on this. No, I don’t think racing on the simulator or computer is the same. This road course incorporates both the speedway’s high-banked turns and a tight, technical infield section.

Some drivers have raced in sports cars in the Rolex 24 and have a little experience with it. Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, Brendan Gaughan, Timmy Hill, Michael McDowell, Jimmie Johnson, and Kurt Busch might have a little edge on the field, but you have to remember stock cars are heavier than the sports cars in that race. Some drivers feel like it may help with their visuals.

I think there are two issues that we have to watch. The first one is the fact that Nascar has decided there will be no practice on this road course. Last year, the drivers practiced two days on the ROVAL at Charlotte and it was full of wrecks. So was the race including Jimmie Johnson wrecking Martin Truex, Jr. as he was about to win the race.

I think the second issue will be tires. The hard weathered asphalt of this track looks to wear tires unevenly. So decisions of when to pit and how many tires to take will play a part. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see this new track. Who is going to go all out for a win and get caught by a curve? Who is going to creep around the track until they figure it out? Good luck to you all and bet responsibly.

Last Season Winner: None

NASCAR Go Bowling 235 Picks

Pick Chase Elliott +420 at FanDuel

Chase has won three times in ten road course starts at different tracks including two straight wins. I think we all have already realizes that he is steady future of the sport. Chase seems to go with the flow and pick up things quickly which is why he should be the favorite in this race.

Pick Kevin Harvick +700 at DraftKings

I think if you like Kevin you grab this quick before it goes lower. He has just been dominant this season. Kevin has a lot of momentum going for him. He only has one road course win, but he has 11 Top tens in the last 13 starts. I think he just figures it out for the win.

Pick Clint Bowyer +2000 at DraftKings

Clint is in the playoffs right now, but with only a handful of races left he would like a win to seal it. He has five Top 5’s in the last eight road courses.

Dark Horse Pick Matt DiBennedetto +3300 at DraftKings

Matt had a top 11 in all three road courses last year. Sometimes being steady and consistent is enough which is why I chose to pick him as my dark horse this race. Don’t be surprised if there are a lot of wrecks that he is there at the end.
