*3 Star Play on Kevin Harvick over Denny Hamlin* NASCAR races at Daytona on the roval for the first time on Sunday. The series has raced at a very similar roval at Charlotte in each of the last two years. This track will race a bit like a road course, but the roval is the single best similar track style we have to handicap this race on.
Kevin Harvick has 11 top 10 finishes in his last 13 road course/roval races. Harvick has the single best road course/roval average finish since 2017 at 6.88. Harvick has an average driver rating of 105.5 on those tracks, which is excellent.
Denny Hamlin finished 19th at the Charlotte roval last year. He finished 12th there the year before. Hamlin has an average driver rating of 66.9 at Charlotte. Harvick finished 9th and 3rd at the two Charlotte roval races, and he has an impressive 111.7 driver rating at that roval (2nd best in the series).
Harvick starts on the pole here and he has been on fire in recent weeks. He is the better road course racer, and I think this is more than a fair price to lay here.
Take Kevin Harvick over Denny Hamlin.
