2022 NASCAR FireKeepers Casino 400 Sleeper Picks

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.


2022 NASCAR odds: +10,000

The mid-field is packed with young and experienced talent. Among the hottest sleeper picks of this weekend’s race is Ricky Stenhouse Jr, who last recorded a victory in 2017 at the Coke Zero 400. This season, the JTG Daugherty Racing driver recorded four top-ten finishes between Dover International Speedway and Kansas Speedway. The 34-year-old also registers an average start of 25.5 and an improved average finish of 21.4. If he can keep consistent throughout the race and bounce back from mediocre finishes in his last eight races, we expect better numbers from the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year.

Austin Hill


2022 NASCAR odds: +10,000

Racing the No. 33 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing is Austin Hill. The 28-year-old is set to make his debut Cup Series appearance at Michigan International Speedway, and many look forward to the results he will deliver. The man from Georgia won his first race with Childress in February at the Daytona opener. His major achievements include a victory at Atlanta, clinching two wins, eight top-five finishes, and 13 appearances in the top ten in 20 races this year. Although several questions remain unanswered, his promising numbers make him a solid sleeper pick this weekend.

Chris Buescher


2022 NASCAR odds: +10,000

The 29-year-old bounced back from a 29th place finish in Pocono Raceway with his second top-ten finish of the season. Buescher started the Verizon 200 in 16th place and made his way up to a tenth place finish when the checkered flag dropped. Although the RFK Racing driver sees a significant decline in his average start (15.5) and average finish (18.8), many believe that he has the tools to spark interesting drives. He looks comfortable racing the Indianapolis circuit and even won the recent Verizon 200 event this year. With momentum coming into the FireKeepers Casino 400, Buescher makes his way to our best sleeper picks list.
