The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Darlington Raceway this week, one of the most iconic tracks on the schedule that’s also one of the toughest for the drivers.

The track coined ‘too tough to tame’ usually tends to favor experienced veterans, but last season’s fall race produced a long-shot winner in Erik Jones with several veteran drivers experiencing difficulties with the Next Gen Car.

While the unpredictability surrounding the Next Gen continues to make picking the winner challenging, we’ve found five drivers that offer value to reach victory lane along with the complete odds for all 36 drivers in the field.

FAST FIVE PICKS

Chalk play

Kyle Larson (+400 to win)

Larson is always in the mix at Darlington, but he’s yet to record a win here despite his strong results. There’s no driver running better than Larson right now, so we’re going to bank on him breaking through to get that first Darlington win and are willing to pay up to have him as one of our five drivers this week even though his odds are very short at 4-to-1.

Trending up

Tyler Reddick (+850 to win)

Reddick recorded a pair of top-three finishes during last year’s Darlington races, and this is the type of track that suits a talented driver like him since it’s such a challenge to drive on. Reddick has run well enough with his new team this season to where he should be in the mix once again to grab his second win of 2023.

Best value

Ross Chastain (+1000 to win)

Darlington hasn’t been kind to Chastain, but we could see that changing this week as he searches for his first win of 2023. Chastain’s been in the headlines a lot due to his controversial driving style, but he’ll look to avoid trouble as he looks to add a win to what’s been an otherwise strong start as the overall series points leader.

Mid-pack play

Ryan Blaney (+2000 to win)

Blaney’s been on a major dry spell as far as winning a Cup race, but his odds have dropped enough to where we’re willing to take a shot on him. Darlington isn’t one of Blaney’s better tracks, but his teammate Joey Logano is the defending winner of this race, so he should have the speed needed to run up front and possibly pull the upset.

Longshot play

Chris Buescher (+7500 to win)

It was tough to find a solid long-shot play this week since favorites typically run the show at Darlington, but Buescher is an intriguing option at 75-to-1. Buescher’s performance has slipped somewhat lately after a hot start, but RFK Racing has shown enough improvement overall to where we feel it’s worth taking a chance on him.
