Time to go racing at the Go Bowling 235. Normally, the Go Bowling takes place in Watkins Glen, NY. COVID-19, however, had different plans for 2020, so the race has moved from New York to the road course at Daytona.
This is the first-ever NASCAR Cup Series race to be held on the Daytona road course.
A limited number of fans will be in attendance for all four races to be held in Daytona this weekend.
Odds to Win and Finish Top Three
Kevin Harvick is coming off his sixth series win of the season. And the 55th win of his career moved him into 10th place on the NASCAR Cup Series all-time win list.
But despite Harvick’s weekend sweep in Michigan – the first time a driver has won two races in two days since Richard Petty in 1971 – he is not the favorite to win in Daytona.
That honor goes to two-time Go Bowling winner Chase Elliott, at +375 to win and +105 to finish in the top three. The full list of top 10 favorites look like this:
Driver/Odds to Win/Odds for Top Three
- Chase Elliott/+375/+105
- Martin Truex, Jr./+400/+115
- Kevin Harvick/+700/+190
- Ryan Blaney/+800/+225
- Kyle Busch/+800/+225
- Denny Hamlin/+800/+225
- Brad Keselowski/+1400/+350
- Joey Logano/+1600/+400
- Clint Bowyer/+1800/+450
- Kurt Busch/+2000/+500
Another driver to look at for Sunday is Kyle Busch. He raced on this course at the Rolex 24 and has far more experience with it than the rest of the field.
Since there is no practice or qualifying, and it’s a late addition to the season schedule, Busch’s experience may loom very large.
A good value play is Jimmie Johnson at +4000 to win and +1000 to finish top three. This has been a strange year for the seven-time Cup Series champion. In this, his final year as a full-time NASCAR driver, Johnson has battled near-misses on the track and COVID-19 off of it.
However, the sentimental pick is squarely Ryan Newman (+10000 to win, +2500 top three). In February, just a lap from victory at the Daytona 500, he was involved in a terrifying accident that shook the racing world and left him in the hospital.
Amazingly, he was able to return after missing only three races, but he’s been struggling since the restart. To win at the track where he nearly lost his life six months ago would be an amazing cap to his 2020 season.
