Logano certainly commands attention. He has made it to the top five in each of the three road course races so far this season. He is still searching for his second road course win on his career, but he’s always put himself in a position to take a checkered flag on such a surface. He has nine top 5s and 16 top 10s in 29 career road course starts in the NASCAR Cup Series.

|Sports Illustrated||Ross Chastain|
Although it was geared towards the fantasy-playing community, Sports Illustrated’s piece on the 2021 Jockey Made in America 250 can be used as a guide on which ones to watch out for. Among those drivers is Ross Chastain, who is only +5000 to win this coming weekend. Despite the long odds, Chastain has shown enough potential on road course races. He had a fourth-place finish at the Circuit of the Americas during last May’s EchoPark Texas Grand Prix. Two weeks later, he finished seventh during the 2021 Toyota Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

Here’s what TopBet’s Ryan Simpson said about Martin Truex Jr. in our preview of the 2021 Jockey Made in America 250 race:
“After finishing 22nd in the 2021 ALly 400 and 18th in the 2021 Pocono Organics CBD 325, Truex has turned heads again with a much-improved finish of 11th in the 2021 Explore the Pocono Mountains 350. That’s a nice momentum builder for Truex, heading to Wisconsin. He has two wins in 11 road course starts since February 2019.”
