Kyle Busch

The reigning NASCAR champion was winless through the four races before the 2020 campaign was suspended, but he also finished second and third in the last two events in California and Phoenix before the suspension. Busch has one career win at Darlington, which came at the Dodge Challenger 500 in the spring race back in 2008.

  • Odds to Win Darlington 400: +600

Denny Hamlin

Hamlin won the prestigious season-opening Daytona 500 while finishing sixth and 20th in California and Phoenix. Hamlin has also won on this track twice in his career, most recently, the 2017 Bojangles’ Southern 500.

Kevin Harvick 

Harvick has finished inside the top 10 in all four NASCAR races this season, including second at Phoenix the last time out as he sits atop the NASCAR standings. The widely-respected veteran took the checkered flag at the 2014 Bojangles’ Southern 500 to record his only win at Darlington.

  • Odds to Win Darlington 400: +800

Martin Truex Jr.

The 2017 NASCAR champ was off to a painfully slow start before the suspension, by faling to finish inside the top 10 in four races while racking up a pair of DNF’s along the way. Truex Jr. does have one career win at Darlingtonin the 2016 Bojangles’ Southern 500.

  • Odds to Win Darlington 400: +850

Prediction

I’m going with Kevin Harvick to get the win in Darlington because of his fantastic consistency so far this season. With a dozen top 10 finishes and eight top five finishes at Darlington, Harvick knows this track as well as anyone. More importantly, he finished an identical fourth in both races at Darlington in 2019 and has recorded a stunning seven straight top 10 finishes on the track, including his lone win!

Pick: Kevin Harvick +800
