It will be an important race in terms of playoff places, with a number of talented drivers located around the cut off point. Those include Chase Elliott, who sits 22nd in the overall standings. The former champion will need to bounce back to form after finishing 36th in the FireKeepers Casino 400 last weekend.

Martin Truex Jr won the previous road course race this season, as he landed success in the Save Mart 350. He remains at the top of the standings at this stage of the season, and he will come into one of the final races of the season in excellent confidence after finishing second in last weekend’s race.

Verizon 200 at the Brickyard Prediction

There is no shortage of leading contenders this weekend. However, a chance will be taken on A J Allmendinger. The driver won this race in 2021, and gravely needs a positive result this weekend, as he sits 19th in the overall standings.
