Michael McDowell

  • 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 Odds: +4000

The driver of the No. 34 Ford Mustang for Front Row Motorsports, Michael McDowell, has the potential to disrupt the front of the grid. The 2021 Daytona 500 winner has experience racing in the ring and is an ideal sleeper pick for those looking to venture on the more adventurous side.

The 37-year-old records an average start of 17.7 and an average finish of 16.7. He also has plenty of momentum after a sixth-place finish at the recently-held Go Bowling at the Glen at Watkins Glen International. With three top ten finishes in his last five races, the Phoenix, Arizona native delivers numbers promising enough to top our 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 sleepers picks list.

Ty Gibbs

  • 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 Odds: +4000

The grandson of Hall of Fame football coach and NASCAR team owner Joe Gibbs, Ty Gibbs, makes his sixth NASCAR Cup Series appearance this season. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, the 19-year-old received the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series Rookie of the Year award leading up to his first NASCAR Cup Series appearance.

Gibbs had a mega debut race at Pocono Raceway, securing a tenth place start and finished 16th for his first career points. He then finished tenth at the FireKeepers Casino 400 in Michigan International Speedway. Although the youngster’s form dropped in the last two races, it’s always a breath of fresh air to see teenagers bring fresh talent and skill to the track.

Cole Custer

  • 2022 Coke Zero Sugar 400 Odds: +6600

The man from Ladera Ranch, California, is a common sight on Nitrobetting for a good reason. He makes our list of sleepers following a solid performance last weekend at Watkins Glen International. The 24-year-old started way back at 29th and managed to finish 11th place, giving him his second 11th place or best finish in four races.

Driving the No 41. Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing, Custer packs decent results since joining the Cup Series in 2018. The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year already holds 11 top-ten finishes, one pole, and a victory which he bagged at the 2020 Quaker State 400.
