The likes of Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, and Martin Truex Jr. will certainly attract plenty of attention for this week’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where the 2021 Foxwoods Resort and Casino 301 will happen on Sunday. But it’s still worth checking out the other drivers with potentially great value at longer odds. Check out three of these sleepers below.
Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 NASCAR Cup Series Race on July 18, 2021
Where: New Hampshire Motor Speedway
When: Sunday, July 18, 2021, green flag at 3:00 PM ET
Broadcast: NBCSN/NBC Sports App (Canada: TSN1, 3)
Erik Jones (+25000)
It’s really hard to decide what to do with Erik Jones sometimes. And it could be the case for many this week. Jones only has a pair of top 10s so far this season. He’s coming off a 24th-place finish in the 2021 Quaker State 400 presented by Kwik Trip. He’s also not finished better than 19th in any of his past six starts. All that being said, how will one just ignore the fact that Jones has a career average finish of 17.6 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway? He finished a race third there back in the 2019 edition of Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.
Daniel Suarez (+15000)
Suarez has finished at exactly 36th place in both of his last two starts, hurting his chances to grab enough points to make the playoffs. But he should not be totally ignored just yet, especially with the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series race to be held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Suarez has two top 10s in five career starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Bubba Wallace (+20000)
Wallace has three top 15s in his last four starts. That stretch involves his fifth-place campaign in the 2021 Explore the Pocono Mountains 350 at Pocono Raceway and a 14th place last Sunday in the 2021 Quaker State 400 presented by Kwik Trip at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Those are not enough to grab people’s attention, but at least Wallace is showing some nicer performances of late.
