Martin Truex Jr (+1000)
The Joe Gibbs Racing driver is currently sixth in the standings with 385 points. Truex has been pretty solid of late, as he’s got three top 10s in his last five starts. That includes his win at the 2023 Würth 400 at Dover Motor Speedway earlier this month. He also recently finished eighth at the 2023 AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway. Since February 2020, Truex has three wins in 17 races on short-course tracks.
Joey Logano (+1000)
Logano is looking for his second win of the season, with his first coming last March at the 2023 Ambetter Health 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The Penske driver placed 18th last week at the 2023 Goodyear 400. He’s also got a total of five wins over 83 career appearances on short-course NASCAR Cup Series events. His career average finish on such courses is 12.2.
Chase Elliott (+1100)
Although he’s still chasing for his first win of the season, Elliott is seemingly starting to get hot. He’s cracked the top 10 in each of his last two starts, finishing seventh at the 2023 AdventHealth 400 and third at the 2023 Goodyear 400. Elliott has also finished inside the top 10 in three of his last five starts, placing no worse than 12th in any event over that same span.
