Event Details & Records
The pressure on the drivers in NASCAR will be stepped up this weekend, as the race to make the next stage of the playoffs heats up. The Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 has been a part of the Cup Series schedule since 2005, and grew in prominence after featuring in the film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. This race will see drivers complete 334 laps, which will complete the 501 miles of action. Both of the opening two stages are made up of 105 laps, while the final stage will see the final 124 laps completed.
Jimmie Johnson is the most successful driver in the history of this race with five victories, while Hendrick Motorsports lead the way with six team victories. The most recent winner of the race with Kyle Larson, who finished in a time of 3:42.54.
A number of the leading contenders to win the race this weekend have previously claimed success in the race previously. Kevin Harvick looks like a very interesting angle, as he won every race between 2017 and 2019. Larson also holds a very strong chance this weekend, as he has finished in the top ten in each of the previous two races.
Chase Elliott certainly offers value in the race betting, as the current leader in the Drivers’ Standings was a very good second in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race last weekend. However, the pressure is certainly building on the former NASCAR champion to win races, as he hasn’t claimed a success since the M&M’s Fan Appreciation a couple of months ago.
Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 Pick and Prediction
We will be willing to take a chance on Kyle Busch this weekend. He was a winner of this race back in 2020 for Joe Gibbs Racing, and he has been in steady form throughout the season. He could be best-placed to pick up a second victory this season.
