Why is Elliott the Favorite in the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas?

If you go back to Chase Elliott’s first career victory in the Cup Series, it came at a road course (Watkins Glen). In fact, five of his 11 career wins have come at road courses. Earlier this season, the Cup Series competed at Daytona International Speedway Road Course and Elliott was the dominant car, leading 44 of the 70 laps, but he ran into some trouble late that resulted in a 21st-place finish.

Elliott’s Stats in 2021

Elliott has had a bit of a slow start with just five top-five finishes over 13 races but three of those have come over the last six races, including two podium finishes. What is particularly alarming, however, is that while he led 44 laps at the Daytona Road Course, he has led only 32 laps over the other 12 races combined.

This road course couldn’t come at a better time for Elliott, who needs a strong finish or a win to secure his spot in the playoffs.

NASCAR Predictions this week for the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix: Circuit of the Americas

With the Cup Series having never run at the Circuit of the Americas, we don’t have any data to assist us in handicapping this race. That said, I shall do my best in providing you with my three favorite picks for this weekend.

Chase Elliott +250: There is no driver in the NASCAR Cup Series who is more dominant at road courses than Chase Elliott. He earned his first career win at a road course and nearly half of his victories have came at these style of tracks. With a third-place finish last week, Elliott will be starting this week near the front, where he will remain for the rest of the race.

Kyle Busch +900: Busch had a tough go last week at Dover with some car troubles but had back-to-back podium finishes in the two previous races. I think that he’s really starting to jell with his team and he has had strong runnings at road courses in the past. He has four career wins at road courses and has finished inside the top 10 in more than half of his 35 starts at those tracks.

Brad Keselowski +1600: Keselowski already has a win and five top-five finishes this season, including one at the Daytona Road Course earlier this year. Although he’s never driven to victory lane at a road course, he does have seven top-five finishes over his 25 career starts. It has been a little bit of all-or-nothing this season for Brad, whose five top-five finishes are also his only top-10 finishes. If he can get toward the front early, he’s a good look at 16:1.
