The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series is headed to Indianapolis this coming weekend for the 2022 Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. Most eyes will certainly be on the favorites like Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, and Ross Chastain, but here are three drivers who might be undervalued a bit. Check out three sleepers in the upcoming 2022 Verizon 200 at the Brickyard race.
Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard NASCAR Cup Series Race on July 31, 2022
Where: Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, Indianapolis, Indiana
When: Sunday, July 31, 2022, green flag at 2:30 PM ET
Kevin Harvick (odds)
It’s been a down year for Harvick so far in 2022, but he is still going to be a driver to watch out for every race. He is 17th in the standings with 571 points, so there’s plenty of motivation for the former Cup Series champion to put up a strong performance this week. On the season, Harvick has 5 top 5s and 11 top 10s.
Michael McDowell (odds)
After a pair of disappointing finishes, McDowell roared back with a sixth-place campaign at Pocono Raceway last Sunday. McDowell now has a top-10 finish in 2 of his last 5 starts, which also includes his 8th place at Road America. On the season, McDowell has 1 top 5 and 8 top 10s.
Chris Buescher (odds)
Buescher finished just 29th last Sunday at Ponoco Raceway – his third sub-25 finish in his last 5 starts. However, there is a chance still for him to surprise this week at Indy Road Course, where he finished in last year’s edition of the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. On the season, Buescher has a top 5 and 5 top 10s. His 388 points is 23rd overall in the standings.
