2021 NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 Recap
Last year, Joe Gibbs Racing dominated. A Gibbs driver finished first, second, and third. Martin Truex Jr. took the checkered flag, followed by Denny Hamlin, and Cristopher Bell. Hendrick driver Chase Elliott finished fourth. Fifth went to Joey Logano and sixth went to another Hendrick driver, Kyle Larson.
Top Choice to Win the 2022 Federated Auto Parts 400
Denny Hamlin is one of the toughest drivers at NASCAR. After the league stripped him of a Pocono victory after a technical inspection, Hamlin took everything in stride. He went out and finished fourteenth at the Indianapolis Road Course.
Then last week in Michigan, Denny started ninth and finished third. Hamlin finished second behind Joe Gibbs teammate Martin Truex Jr. in this last year. Denny is a great pick to cross the finish line first.
Second Top Choice to Win the 2022 Federated Auto Parts 400
Since a string of five races where he grabbed first three times and second twice, Chase Elliott hasn’t cracked the top ten. The Pocono victory was due to Hamlin’s technical infractions. Chase finished sixteenth in the next race over Indianapolis’ road course. Then last week, Elliott crossed the finish line in eleventh place.
Chase is a much better driver than what he’s shown. Not only that, but last year he finished fourth. If you want a better payout, consider making Elliott your top play instead of Hamlin.
Third Top Choice to Win the 2022 Federated Auto Parts 400
Christopher Bell’s third place finish in this in 2021 says he has a big shot. No doubt, Bell can get it done. He won in New Hampshire a few races back. Cristopher also finished fourth at Pocono. Last Sunday, he started second but failed to improve, finishing a distant twenty-sixth. Expect a better performance on Sunday. But the odds make him underlay.
Top Underdog Choice to Win the 2022 Federated Auto Parts 400
Watch out for Kevin Harvick. The Stewart-Haas Racing driver can no doubt win back-to-back and Kevin finished eighth in this last year. But if we can only choose one underdog play, we must go with Joey Logano. The Team Penske driver finished sixth over the Indianapolis Road Course. Then last Sunday, Logano started fourth and finished fourth.
At the 2021 Federated Auto Parts 400, Joey drove great, starting sixth and finishing fifth. The odds make Logano more than playable.
