The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Las Vegas to kick off the month of March. The Pennzoil 400 is set to take place this Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with the green flag dropping at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.

Kevin Harvick is the pole sitter for this race and installed as +600 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, followed by Martin Truex Jr. at +650. He has twice won the Cup Series race in Las Vegas, and has finished inside the top ten seven of the past nice races at the Speedway. Last year, he finished eighth in the Pennzoil 400 and tenth in the South Point 400.

The big question is whether or not Joey Logano can threepeat in Las Vegas. He’s won the Pennzoil 400 each of the past two years and has claimed nine top ten finish in his last ten races at the Las Vegas track. He is installed at +800 to win, which is tied with Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski for the third best odds to win.

Harvick is joined by William Byron on the front row, with Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. in the second row. NASCAR did not conduct qualifying runs for this race, and is only doing so for eight races in 2021. Due to COVID-19, the Cup, Xfinity, and Truck Series circuits are all using a performance-metrics formula that includes individual race and season-long results. 25 percent for the metric comes from a driver’s finishing position from the previous race, 25 percent comes from the car owner’s finishing position from the previous race, 35 percent comes from the team owner’s points ranking, and 15 percent comes from the fastest lap from the previous race.

Here is the full lineup for Sunday’s 2021 Pennzoil 400.
