Favorites to win the Go Bowling at The Glen
The winner of the last two Go Bowling at The Glen races, Chase Elliott rightfully sits atop the odds board for this year’s race. The reigning NASCAR Cup champion is the favorite at +200, and Elliott will look to win his third straight Go Bowling at The Glen race and his third race win of the season.
Current NASCAR Cup Series leader, Kyle Larson, is chasing Elliott at +450 ahead of this weekend. With a season-high four wins and 11 Top-5 finishes already under his belt this season, Larson will be a strong challenger as Elliott goes for a three-peat. In the last race here, in 2019, Larson finished eighth from fifth on the grid.
Just behind Larson is Martin Truex Jr., at +600. Truex Jr., who is second in the NASCAR Cup standings, finished second to Elliott in both 2018 and ’19 at the Go Bowling at The Glen, and won the event in 2017. With plenty of success this season and previously at this circuit, Truex Jr. will be a strong candidate to win.
Rounding out the Top-5 is Kyle Busch (+750) and Denny Hamlin (+1,100). Busch is a two-time champion at this circuit, with his last win coming in 2013, while he already has two race wins this season. Hamlin, searching for his first race win of the season, is also a former winner here after taking the chequered flag in 2016.
