A Look At The Field

Kyle Larson (+400)

Larson’s found his success at Auto Club Speedway, winning the race in 2017. His career average finish on two-mile tracks (Auto Club, Michigan) is 12.75, third best among active drivers. The two in front of him: teammate Chase Elliott and Joey Logano. Given the success of Hendrick Motorsports at ACS and Larson’s two straight pole positions (2021 Phoenix, 2022 Daytona), he’s an unsurprising favorite.

Kyle Busch (+850)

Kyle Busch feels right at home in Fontana, which is just three-and-a-half hours away from his hometown of Las Vegas. He’s won four races at ACS, most recently in 2019. Last weekend, he finished sixth at Daytona and led 28 laps. With a track type not found many other places on the Sprint Cup circuit, success and experience on the track is going to matter and Busch has both.

Chase Elliott (+850)

No active driver has a better average finish at ACS than Chase Elliott. He’s yet to win a race here, but he has four top-five finishes in 16 races, 13 top-10 finishes, and is a three-time runner-up. Elliott’s price for a top-10 finish (-340) doesn’t drive a ton of excitement, but if you’re looking for a bet outside of an outright, he’s +210 at FanDuel Sportsbook to finish inside the top three.

Denny Hamlin (+950)

Get used to seeing Hamlin’s name near the top of odds boards all season long. He was the favorite at Daytona, but wrecked after 63 laps and didn’t finish the race. Toyota has a recent history of wins, winning two of the last three runs here (Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch). However, he had just two outright wins last season.

FanDuel’s Jim Sannes On Hendricks’ Success:

I wouldn’t put too much stock in what teams have done [at ACS]. They haven’t been there since 2020 and it’s a different rules package [now]… course history, in general, is pretty low this week… Penske/Joe Gibbs Racing effectively ignored tracks that weren’t involved in the playoffs. Fontana is a very unique track type, so if they take the same approach [as last year], they’re not going to put a big emphasis on this weekend.
