Toyota/Save Mart 350
June 6, 2021 4:00 pm EDT
We head to Sonoma for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series. This is the 16th race of the season and the last one before Allstar weekend. This is one of three road course races.
Here are five drivers to consider throwing on Sunday’s card.
Martin Truex Jr., +400 – Martin Truex Jr. is due for a breakout performance after three straight finishes outside of the top-10. He has won this event two years straight and has won it three times overall. Only Jeff Gordon has won the Toyota/Save Mart 350 more than Truex. Expect Truex to get out of his current funk.
Kyle Busch, +700 – Kyle Busch has finished third or better in three of his last five races. Expect the hot streak to continue, as Busch has won this race twice and has finished seventh or better in five straight trips at the Sonoma Raceway. After struggling last year, it’s safe to say Busch is back.
Kevin Harvick, +1200 – It’s not often Kevin Harvick goes this long into a season without a victory. Harvick won the Toyota/Save Mart 350 in 2017 and was runner-up here in 2018. Harvick has finished six or better in five straight appearances at the Sonoma Raceway. It’s only a matter of time before Harvick tastes victory lane.
Chase Elliott, +220 – You’re not going to get rich with Chase Elliott and these odds, but he’s still worth a look. Elliott has finished third or better in three straight races. Elliott has finished fifth or better in seven races this year overall. He has limited trips at the Sonoma Raceway and no wins, but Elliott’s too consistent to not include on your card.
Alex Bowman, +1800 – Alex Bowman has only four trips at Sonoma and has had zero success here. However, Bowman is averaging a finish of 4.6 in his last three races and has won two of the last seven races. We’re seeing Bowman start to put things together and earn his stripes. Take advantage of these odds while you still can.
