The Nascar Cup Series will make at stop at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon for the Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400, also known as the Brickyard 400. Indy is a 2.5 mile rectangular shaped track, and the turns are relatively flat. Pocono Raceway is the closest comparison to Indy, so we should see some similarities. We found victory lane in both Cup races at Pocono last weekend, let’s keep that streak rolling.

Here are a 5 drivers to consider for Brickyard 400.

Kevin Harvick +500- Kevin started the 2019 race at Indy on the pole and came away with the victory. Harvick led 118 if the 160 total laps of the 2019 Indy race. Harvick won at Pocono back last Saturday, and that victory was his first at Pocono Raceway. Harvick has the best average driver rating over the last 2 Indy races at 128.6. Also, Keving has the best average driver rating over the last 8 races between Indy and Pocono of 123. I would be getting action in early on Harvick as the price will go down.  

Denny Hamlin +600- Denny won the previous race on the Cup Series circuit back on Sunday at Pocono. Denny has never won at Indianapolis, but he has come close a few times in his career. Over the last 2 Indy races, Denny has the 2nd best average finish of 4.5 and the 3rd best average driver rating of 109.6. Denny traditionally runs well at Indy and Pocono, and over the last 8 races has 7 top 10 finishes at these 2 tracks. I am looking for Denny to keep this momentum going at Indy this weekend, and he must be in consideration.

Kyle Busch +650- Kyle Busch has no doubt been having a very frustrating 2020 Cup Series season. The crash back on Sunday at Pocono was unfortunate, but back on Saturday at Pocono finished 5th. Over the last 8 races at Pocono and Indy, Kyle has an average driver rating of 110.5 which is 3rd best among active drivers. I have been off Kyle over the last few weeks, but I think it’s time we get back on the wagon. Indy is another track for Kyle to get back to winning ways, and needs to be considered for Sunday afternoon.

Clint Bowyer +2600- Clint is my dark horse pick to win on Sunday at Indianapolis. Clint has 5 top 10 finishes over the last 8 races at Indy and Pocono. Clint has an average 9th place finish in the last 8 races at Indy and Pocono with an average driver rating of 99.7. Over the last 2 races at Indianapolis, Bowyer has the 2nd best average driver rating of 118.1. Clint has top 5 upside here at Indy, and I will have a little bit of action on him to win the race on Sunday.

Aric Almirola +4200- Aric is my long shot play for the Indianapolis race on Sunday. Almirola has an average driver rating of 93.1 over the last 8 races between Indy and Pocono. Most of Almirola’s success had come at Pocono, as he has struggled at Indy over the last 2 races. Almirola ran very well Saturday at Pocono finishing 3rd and he had a great run Sunday at Pocono finishing 5th. Almirola has put together some solid finishes over the last 5 Cup series races in 2020, and I have no issues with him on Sunday.
