Expert Picks and Predictions for the Buschy McBusch Race 400 NASCAR Cup Series Race on May 2, 2021
Where: Kansas Speedway
When: Sunday, May 2, 2021, green flag at 3:00 PM ET
|Adam B||Chase Elliott|
Adam B of ATS.io thinks that Chase Elliott is the best pick to win the 2021 Buschy McBusch Race 400. Elliott, who is currently priced +900 to win this weekend, is coming off a rather lackluster showing last Sunday at the Talladega Superspeedway, as he finished just 24th. However, he’s got a trio of top 5s and 4 top 10s in 10 starts this season. Elliott has an 11.0 career average finish at Kansas Speedway across 10 career starts, including a win at the 2018 Hollywood Casino 400.
|Expert||Top drivers to watch out for|
|Covers||Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott|
Covers didn’t name a particular pick to win this race, but it mentioned at least three drivers to watch out for in Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., and Elliott. Hamlin’s got to be among the top drivers out there even though he has yet to win this season. After all, he’s got 8 top 5s in 10 starts. Truex, meanwhile, has two wins in 25 career starts at Kansas Speedway along with 9 top 5s and 12 top 10s. Hamlin is the top favorite to win the 2021 Buschy McBusch Race 400 with odds of +500, while Truex is not that far behind him with a price of +600.
|William Blackwell||Martin Truex/Aric Almirola|
William Blackwell has Truex as his top driver for the 2021 Buschy McBusch Race 400, but if you’re looking for a sleeper, he thinks that Aric Almirola could be your guy. Almirola is +5000. Since February 2018, Almirola has 3 top 10s in six starts at Kansas Speedway. Last year, he finished sixth at the Super Start Batteries 400 Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts and 13th at the Hollywood Casino 400.

Here’s what TopBet’s Ryan Simpson said about Denny Hamlin in our preview of the 2021 Buschy McBusch Race 400 race:
“Hamlin is coming off a frustrating start at Talladega Superspeedway, as he placed just 32nd at the 2021 GEICO 500. But that can just be considered as a mere anomaly in his otherwise impressive resume so far this season. Hamlin has 8 top 5s in 10 starts with a total of 737 total laps led. Hamlin is primed for a strong rebound this coming weekend, as he has won in two of his last three starts at Kansas Speedway. Overall, he has 3 wins and 8 top 5s there in 25 career starts.”
