Kyle Larson +350- Larson will start from the pole position for Sunday Night’s All-Star Race and has just been the best on the Cup Series circuit over the last few weeks. After sweep all three stages in NASCAR’s longest race the Coke 600, Larson followed up that win with a victory one week ago on the road course in Sonoma. With 4 2nd place finishes and a victory at Las Vegas on the 2021 Cup Series season, Larson heading in as the outright favorite has experience in the short sprint races from dirt racing and will be aggressive from the start. Look for Larson to perform well once again on Sunday night.

Chase Elliott +700- Chase will roll off from the 6th starting spot on Sunday evening for the All-Star Race event. Elliott has been right on the coat tails of teammate Kyle Larson over the last 6 races, 4 top 3 finishes in a row currently plus the win at the inaugural event at COTA 3 weeks ago. After a disappointing 13th place finish in Las Vegas, Elliott got it going with a 5th at Kansas and a 2nd place finish in the Coke 600 at Charlotte. Chase won the All-Star Race at Bristol in 2020 and should be in contention here on Sunday night once again at Texas.

Kyle Busch +800- Kyle will start outside row 1 alongside Kyle Larson from the 2nd position on Sunday evening for the All-Star event. 2021 has been a roller coaster ride for Busch in the Cup Series but heading into the All-Star Race has 3rd place finish in the Coke 600 and a 5th last week at Sonoma. Busch won the Kansas race back in May, only needing to lead 20 laps to take home the hardware. Kyle’s ability to take it to the edge with aggressiveness is perfect for the All-Star Race format. Not bad value to be getting here with Kyle, be sure to consider Busch for the win on Sunday night.

Joey Logano +1100- Logano will fire off from the 7th starting spot for the All-Star Race on Sunday night at Texas. Joey has been somewhat hit and miss here lately, really struggled in the Coke 600 bringing home a disappointing 17th place finish. Also, Logano finished 17th at Kansas back in May as the team really found a hard time to find speed in the race car. The All-Star Race is different from any other event on the Cup Series schedule and Joey has an aggressive driving style that usually turns into great short-run speed that any driver needs for the event. Sprinkle some action here with Logano.

Austin Dillion +3000- Austin will be the longshot play of the week here for the All-Star race. Dillon has a 10th place finish at Kansas followed up by a 6th place finish at Charlotte in the Coke 600 2 weeks ago. The Childress team is right on the heels of Hendrick Motorsports in overall speed right now and Dillon has been getting better with speed each week. Austin has a knack for winning races that he’s not expected to especially the big crown jewel events. Give a little consideration to Austin on Sunday night.
