The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series is headed to Texas this coming weekend for the 2022 NASCAR All-Star Race. Most eyes will certainly be on the favorites like Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, but here are three drivers who might be being undervalued a bit. Check out three sleepers in the upcoming NASCAR All-Star Race.
Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the NASCAR All-Star Race on May 22, 2022
Where: Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth, Texas
When: Sunday, May 22, 2022, green flag at 8:00 PM ET
Christopher Bell (+1600)
Bell is a sleeper based on his odds only. He is looking to continue his good stretch, having finished inside the top 5 in each of his last three races. He has not won a race yet this season, but he’s clearly a driver to watch often, with three top 5s and seven top 10s, so far. Bell has also shown a great feel of the Texas Motor Speedway, as he’s already got a pair of podium finishes in four career starts there. Since a 21st-place finish in his debut there in 2020, Elliott has not placed outside of the top 11 in any of his succeeding three appearances at the said track.
Joey Logano (+2000)
The Team Penske driver is also a sleeper because of his odds. He hasn’t been consistent lately, with a couple of sub-25 performances in his last five starts and three sub-17s over the same stretch. However, it was not that long ago when he scored his first win of the season, topping the field at the 2022 Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway earlier this month. Logano also brings a career average finish of 14.0 at Texas Motor Speedway, with 11 top 5s and 14 top 10s across 26 starts. He’s won there before when he took the checkered flag at the 2014 Duck Commander 500.
Brad Keselowski (+8000)
It’s been a challenging season so far for Keselowski, who is ranked just 31st in the NASCAR Cup Series standings. So far this season, Keselowski has zero wins, zero top 5s, and only a single top 10. That being said, the Texas Motor Speedway could be where he turns the corner. For one, Keselowski has made a top-10 finish there in each of his last four starts at the track.
