The Nascar Cup Series will head to New England at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. New Hampshire is a flat, 1 mile oval and can be compared to Phoenix and Martinsville. Tire wear is typically low at New Hampshire, and with only 301 laps track position is highly important. Passing at New Hampshire is challenging, and I expect pit stop strategy to all over the place on Sunday.

Here are 5 drivers to consider for Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 on Sunday afternoon.

Denny Hamlin +475- Denny will share the 3rd row with Alex Bowman and will start from the 6th spot for Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. Denny has the 3rd best average finish over the last 3 Cup Series races held at New Hampshire and the 2nd best average driver rating of 111.6. In 27 Cup Series starts at New Hampshire, Denny has 16 top 10 finishes including 11 top 5s and 3 wins. Denny has yet to pick up a win on the 2021 Cup Series circuit and Sunday might just be the spot to claim first victory of the season.

Martin Truex Jr +500- Truex comes into Sunday’s race starting from the 2nd position. Truex has failed to finish outside the top 10 at New Hampshire over the past 6 Cup Series races that have taken place. Over the last 3 Cup Series races at New Hampshire, Truex has the 2nd best average finish of 4.33 and the 3rd best average driver rating of 110.9. After the 3rd place finish at Sonoma back in June, Truex slid in the standings and then had a great 3rd place effort at Atlanta one week ago. Truex claimed victories at Phoenix and Martinsville in the Cup Series this season and those tracks compare most to New Hampshire.

Kyle Busch +650- Kyle will roll off from the pole position on Sunday afternoon out at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 30. Over the last 3 races at New Hampshire in the Cup Series, Busch has 2 top 10 finishes including 1 top 5 finish. Kyle had high hopes at New Hampshire in 2020 but was caught up in an early race accident and leading to a 38th place finish. In 29 Cup Series starts at New Hampshire, Kyle has 16 top 10 finishes including 11 top 5s and 3 wins. Best starting track position on Sunday, look for Kyle to stay out front and rebound from the disappointing 2020 finish at New Hampshire.

Joey Logano +1000- Logano fires off from the 15th starting spot on Sunday afternoon for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. 6 Cup Series races since Joey has come home with a top 5 finish and over the last 2 races has finished outside of the top 10. New Hampshire has been kind to Logano and crew over the last 3 Cup Series races with the 6th best average driver rating of 97.1 and the 5th best average finish of 7.33. In 22 career Cup Series at New Hampshire, Joey has 12 top 10 finishes 7 top 5s and 2 wins. Nice opportunity to rebound here for Logano on Sunday afternoon at New Hampshire. 

Kevin Harvick +1500- Harvick will take the green flag from the 12th starting spot for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 on Sunday afternoon. Harvick has the best average finish of 2.33 and the best average driver rating 118.9 over the last 3 Cup Series races at New Hampshire. In 37 Cup Series starts at New Hampshire, Kevin has 21 top 10s including 13 top 5 finishes and 4 victories. Best value on the board hands down on Harvick heading into Sunday’s race, be sure to consider some action.
