New Hampshire Motor Speedway
When: Sunday, August 2
NASCAR is back after racing early last week in Kansas. This will mark the 20th race of a wild season where Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin have led the entire way. Harvick leads the circuit in cup points with 763 (101 more than Brad Keselowski) and laps led with exactly 700. Harvick also leads in top 10’s with 16.
Denny Hamlin has 523 laps led and five wins, which is one more than Harvick for the cup lead. Some names that have done well here in the past that could be the best car on Sunday are Martin Truex, Jr, Ryan Blaney, and Kyle Busch.
It will be interesting to see who pushes it late on Sunday since there will be two races the following week in Michigan (Saturday and Sunday races). Here are some stats, facts and hopefully I give out yet another winning NASCAR week.

Top 10 Finish, Two Racer Parlay for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301
-550 Kevin Harvick & -285 Kyle Busch
This should be a solid play considering Harvick is always at the top of the leaderboard and both he and Kyle Busch have great history in New Hampshire. Harvick leads in cup points and has won two races in a row at New Hampshire.
Harvick has the most top 10’s after 19 races on tour and leads in top 5’s as well with 12. Kyle Busch led for the most laps here last year and he won here in 2014 and 2017.

-130 Martin Truex, Jr over Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski was nowhere near the leaders in last year’s race, and in the race before that one in New Hampshire, he finished a disappointing 32nd. Meanwhile, Martin Truex, Jr. has finished in the top seven in five consecutive visits to New Hampshire.
-145 Cole Custer over Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
Stenhouse, Jr. tanked here last year and finished 36th meanwhile rookie Cole Custer has four top 10’s
-150 Denny Hamlin over Joey Logano
After an early great start to the season, Logano and his Penske team have fallen apart. This is also a track where Logano has had some serious issues. On the other hand, in last year’s race, Hamlin finished second to Harvick and was the winner here four races ago.
-135 Aric Almirola over Austin Dillon
Almirola is 8th in cup points (23 points behind Logano for 6th) and recorded a third-place finish here two races ago. Dillon is 16th in points and Almirola has led for 225 more laps in 19 races than Dillon.
-120 Ryan Blaney over Chase Elliott
Blaney leads Elliott in cup points and laps led in 2020. Blaney had a nice run a season ago here grabbing a fourth-place finish. Elliott hasn’t had much luck here and that includes a 29th place finish last year.
Harry’s NASCAR Winner Prediction and Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 Winner
-140 Top 5
+115 Top 3
I know it seems kind of boring at this juncture when you say that Kevin Harvick is your winner of whatever race, but if boring cashes your tickets, I’m sure you will be fine with it. Harvick is just too good in general, let alone at a track where he has dominated at in the past.
That is the situation here so be fine with being bored and cash with the 44-year-old and most consistent driver on tour this year, Kevin Harvick.
