Event Preview

The Goodyear 400 has been a regular stop on the NASCAR calendar since 1957. However, the race has been run annually since 1952. The race was previously called the Rebel 400, and a total of 293 laps will be covered by the field this weekend. The first stage is made up of 90 laps, while the second stage consists of 95 laps. Meanwhile, the final stage will see the final 108 laps covered.

Joey Logano landed a first win in the race 12 months ago for Team Penske. However, the most successful driver in the history of the race remains David Pearson, who claimed seven victories between 1968 and 1980.

Ross Chastain remains at the top of the Driversā€™ Championship standings after finishing fifth in the AdventHealth 400 last weekend. That race was eventually won by Denny Hamlin, who moved up to fourth in the overall standings. It has been a reliable start to the season for Hamlin, who has finished in the top five in three of the previous four races.

Kyle Larson heads the betting for the event this weekend, as the former champion looks for a third victory of the season. He led for the most laps last weekend, but he eventually had to settle for second in the overall finishing positions. He could be a strong contender this weekend to land a first career victory in the Goodyear 400.

NASCAR 2023: Goodyear 400 Prediction

Kyle Larson makes a very appealing case in the betting this weekend, and it may be hard to overlook the former champion. However, we are prepared to take a chance on a former winner of the race, as Kevin Harvick could be well positioned to claim a first victory of the season.
