The NASCAR Cup Series is headed to Wisconsin this week for its Independence Day race — the Jockey Made in America 250. The circuit will be running the race at the Road America course. It’s one of the few NASCAR events this season that will hold qualifying, which starts Sunday morning at 11:05 a.m. ET and will air on CNBC. It will be available for live stream at NBC.com/live and through the NBC app.
Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson are sizable favorites for this race at DraftKings Sportsbook. Qualifying will shake up the odds to some degree, but for now, Elliott is the favorite at +225 and Larson follows him at +300. Martin Truex, Jr. is next at +700, and Kyle Busch (+1100) and Joey Logano (+1200) follow to round out the top five.
Elliott is favored in large part because of his extensive success on road courses. He ranks first among active drivers in Cup Series road course performance, with Truex second among drivers with more than a single road race. Larson ranks ninth but won the Sonoma road race on June 6th and finished second at the Circuit of the Americas race on May 23rd.
