Check out three sleepers in the upcoming 2022 Enjoy Illinois 300 presented by TicketSmarter.
Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR Cup Series Race on June 5, 2022
Where: World Wide Technology Raceway, Madison
When: Sunday, June 5, 2022, green flag at 3:30 PM ET
Daniel Suarez (+4000)
Suarez won the 2022 NASCAR Cup All-Star Open race and then placed fifth at the main All-Star Race. However, he was not able to sustain his momentum from those races, as he was unable to finish last week’s 2022 Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway due to an accident. Still, it’s not such a bad idea to place action on Suarez, who’s got a total of 10 top 10s on races on an intermediate track (1 mile) in his career, thus far. Last month, he finished 14th in Dover during the 2022 DuraMAX Drydene 400 presented by RelaDyne. He also finished ninth last March at the 2022 Ruoff Mortgage 500 at Phoenix Raceway.
Austin Dillon (+6000)
Like Suarez, Dillon also failed to finish the race last week because of an accident. He’s been fairly competitive this season, though, and it could just be a matter of time before he sticks his first win of the year. Dillon has made it to the top 5 in three of 12 starts this season and also six times in the top 10. He is winless in his career in races done on intermediate tracks (1 mile) but six top 10s and 29 top 20s suggest that he’s not too bad when he’s revving his engine in such locations.
Brad Keselowski (+6000)
Since 2011, Keselowski has not finished a season winless, and if that trend is to continue this year, then we are all just waiting for him to get his first W of the campaign. In 71 career starts on intermediate tracks (1 mile), Keselowski has garnered three wins and 22 top 5s to go with 37 top 10s. He’s also got a career average finish on that kind of track of 11.8.
