AdventHealth 400 Predictions

Tyler Reddick Looks to Be the Next First-Time Winner in the Cup Series

On April 17 at Bristol Motor Speedway’s Dirt Track, Tyler Reddick came within 300 yards of his first NASCAR Cup Series victory.

Reddick held the winning position until Chase Briscoe drove his Ford around the last corner, knocking Reddick’s Chevrolet out of the track and giving the win to Kyle Busch.

Reddick will not be discouraged forever and this week will prove to be his best chance at winning.

No, Reddick’s track record at Kansas Speedway predicts victory. In five Cup starts at the track, he posted no top fives and two top 10s. But there are other factors. Reddick was able to score top fives at all three races in Kansas, which led him to two runner up finishes.

The Richard Childress Racing drivers, Reddick and Austin Dillon, have been more competitive with the Next Gen car this year.

Kansas, like Homestead Miami Speedway (perhaps Reddick’s most famous track), is conducive for running the top track near the wall. This is Reddick’s favorite groove.

In addition, Reddick was one of three Cup drivers participating in the Goodyear tire test at Kansas on March 29. Reddick should have an advantage on Sunday due to the fact that he only had Saturday practice.

Reddick qualified second on Saturday and, predictably, his odds shortened to +700 via DraftKings Sportsbook, making him co-favorite with Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch and pole winner Christopher Bell. He’s worth the risk.

Fresh from a Victory At Darlington Joey Logano goes for two straight

Logano’s dump and-run at William Byron at Darlington generated a lot of debate, but that didn’t change the fact Logano’s Ford was the fastest on the track at its end.

A week after a miserable run at Dover, Logano found speed at the Track Too Tough to Tame, and there’s no reason why that can’t carry over into the AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, historically one of his best tracks.

A three-time winner at the 1.5-mile speedway, Logano has recorded eight top fives in 25 starts at the track.

Now that Paul Wolfe and Logano have been able to get a grip on the Next Gen car you can be sure Logano will be in contention on Sunday. After blowing his left rear tire on Saturday and colliding with another car in practice,

Logano must start at the back in a backup vehicle. But that lengthened his odds to +2000 (DraftKings), making the driver of the No. 22 Team Penske Ford an attractive long-shot pick at the price.

Sooner or later, Kevin Harvick will have a breakout race. This Week?

In his last 12 starts at Kansas Speedway, Kevin Harvick has posted seven top-three finishes. This stretch also includes Harvick’s three wins at Kansas Speedway and his three runners-up finishes.

In 32 Kansas starts, Harvick has recorded an average finish of 8.9. Though he and crew chief Rodney Childers have yet to get a handle on the Next Gen car, they’re making progress–as top-10 finishes in the last three races attest.

While we don’t think Harvick will win Sunday’s race, we think he’s an excellent candidate to run top-three (+1000) and top-five (+600), despite his 23rd-place starting position. Place your bets according to the following.
