NASCAR Cup Series Odds and Betting Opportunities for EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix

NASCAR heads to Texas and takes on a Formula 1 flair this week with the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix, at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas. The race will run 68 laps and cover almost 232 miles on the same road course that the Formula 1 drivers use when they run the United States Grand Prix each year. The race starts Sunday at 3:30 pm Eastern time, and you can watch the action on FOX or listen on PRM or SiriusXM. Last week, Joey Logano came away with the win at the Ambetter Health 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He got a push from Christopher Bell on the final lap, sending him outside leader Brad Keselowski. He zipped past Keselowski and beat him by 0.193 seconds. Bell settled for third, just .001 seconds behind Keselowski. This was the first victory of 2023 for Logano and his first at Atlanta. The defending Cup Series champion won Stage 1 from start to finish, leading 63 laps. On the day, he led 140 of the 260 laps. Looking ahead to this weekend, let’s check out the NASCAR betting odds for each driver and review some wager card suggestions.

Austin Cindric

is a driver who will take advantage of the new rules for road courses this year. Short pitting, flipping stages and stage break cautions are all gone. You can’t cruise up to the pre-set caution anymore. These changes will reward the top drivers with the top cars, and Cindric is a proven winner in this format.

Kyle Larson

was the top-rated road course driver in the Cup Series in 2021. He struggled in 2022, when NASCAR added downforce on the road courses. The rules are reverting to low downforce in 2023 – and that should help Larson significantly.

AJ Allmendinger

got some of the best ratings in the six Cup Series races on road courses in 2022, and Allmendinger has been able to excel with Kaulig cars in road races at this level.

Michael McDowell

was the third-highest road course driver in the Cup Series in 2022, and he comes with a lot of value this week.

Tyler Reddick

used to struggle on road courses when he drove in the Xfinity Series, but he worked on getting better, and he won a pair of road races last year. A problem is that he switched to Toyota, and their cars did not do well on road courses last year.

Ross Chastain

is the defending champion in this race, thanks to some aggressive maneuvering last year. His team, Trackhouse Racing, his led by Justin Marks, who used to excel as a driver on road courses. Teammate Daniel Suarez took first at Sonoma last year.

Speaking of

Daniel Suarez

, he ran 52% of his laps in the top ten in the six Cup Series road course races last year, including that win at Sonoma.

Christopher Bell

was a top-ten driver on road courses last year despite driving one of the Gen 7 JGR Toyotas, which struggled as a whole on road courses last season. He has road course wins in the Cup Series (Daytona Road Course) and the Xfinity Series (Road America).

Kyle Busch

was driving Toyotas last year, which explains his difficulties on road courses. He is now in an RCR Chevy, and that equipment won a pair of road courses races last season.
