2021 NASCAR Coke Zero Sugar 400 Recap
Last year, Ryan Blaney secured the win. Blaney started in sixth position. He drove great, well enough to pass everyone, including pole winner Kyle Larson, to grab first place. Bubba Wallace followed Blaney in second place. Third place went to Ryan Newman. Chase Elliott, this year’s favorite, finished eighth while Hendrick teammate Kyle Larson crossed the finish line in twentieth.
Top Choice to Win the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400
Kyle Larson raced great last week. Kyle picked up his second win of the season when finishing first at Watkins Glen. Although Larson had a terrible Coke Zero Sugar 400 in 2021, finishing twentieth, he did win the pole. Kyle can go back-to-back.
Larson is gearing up for a run in the playoffs. Although he doesn’t need the win to remain in the top 16, Kyle wants to lift as many trophies as possible this season.
Second Top Choice to Win the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400
Cup standings leader Chase Elliott didn’t race great over the road course at Watkins Glen. No problem. On Sunday, Chase returns to a traditional NASCAR race. He’s turned left this year better than anyone else on the NASCAR circuit.
Why not enter the playoffs with a fifth win on the resume? Expect the top driver in the league this season to step it up.
Third Top Choice to Win the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400
Last year’s winner is on the cusp of NASCAR’s Sweet 16. Blaney can’t afford to have a bad race, though. If he does, he may not get a chance to win the Cup. No doubt, Ryan and his team have pointed to this event.
If it all comes together, Blaney could cross the finish line first like he did in 2021. The incentive will be there to win a race during the regular season and to ensure a playoff spot. Give Blaney a big shot to get it done. If you believe he has what it takes, bump him ahead of Elliott and Larson.
Top Underdog Choice to Win the 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400
The Joe Gibbs driver is on the cusp of the playoffs. But Truex Jr. is 25 points behind Ryan Blaney. So the only way Martin can catch his rival for the final playoff spot is to win at Daytona and hope Blaney drives a dud.
Neither one may happen. One thing is for sure, though, Martin Truex Jr. is going to be ultra-aggressive and give it his all. Don’t expect another twenty-ninth place finish. Truex Jr. rates as the best underdog play. The incentive is there to win and he and his crew are too good to flub in the most important event of the regular season.
