Here’s why Jordan Bianchi is picking Martin Truex Jr. to win the 2022 Coca-Cola 600:
“Martin Truex Jr. is due for a win and Charlotte is a good track for that to occur. He’s won here multiple times and has been fast on 1.5-mile tracks this season, nearly winning at Las Vegas and having good speed at Darlington and Kansas. Truex gets his first win of the season Sunday.”
Here’s why Jeff Gluck is picking Kyle Larson to win the 2022 Coca-Cola 600:
“Sorry to be boring, but it has to be Kyle Larson (who is the favorite). Larson finished second at the other two 1.5-mile intermediate track races (Las Vegas and Kansas) and won at Fontana, which could be lumped in if you want. I’d love to go out on more of a limb, but that’s the pick this week.”
Logano seems to be heating up. He has cracked the top 5 in two of his last three overall starts, including a win at Darlington and a fourth-place at the 2022 NASCAR Cup All-Star Race. Logano carries a career average finish of 12.4 in 23 appearances at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
|William Blackwell||Kyle Larson|
Larson didn’t shine a lot in the All-Star Race, finishing just 24th. Nevertheless, he still has six top 5s and seven top 10s this season, which shouldn’t be ignored when looking at him before every race. Larson has a career average finish of 17.4 in 12 starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway and is actually the defending champ of this race.

Here’s what TopBet’s Ryan Simpson said about Kevin Harvick in our preview of the 2022 Coca-Cola 600 race:
Harvick is still looking for his first win of the season, and the 2022 Coca-Cola 600 will present the veteran another shot to finally break through with a victory. He’s been steady of late, finishing inside the top 20 in all his last five starts, with three top 10s in that stretch. And Harvick has always been a strong performer whenever he’s in Concord, as underscored by his career average finish of 14.8 across 39 starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He’s also won there three times and has not finished worse than 10th in any of his last five appearances on the said track.
