After a Saturday race – also known as the Drydene 311 – where Denny Hamlin earned the win, the drivers get right back at it on Sunday for the Drydene 311 Sunday race. The race will take place at Dover International Speedway and get started at 4pm ET. Hamlin has been red-hot these days but is he a good bet to finish well again on Sunday?

Odds as of August 22.
Trust Truex Jr. Again
Martin Truex Jr. is someone you’re going to want to look at when you’re handicapping Sunday’s race. After finishing second on Saturday, he’s now finished second, second and first in his last three starts at Dover. Looking further out, Truex Jr. has finished in the top four sports in seven of his last starts at this track.

Focusing in on the 2020 season, there are few drivers that are hotter than Truex Jr. right now. After finishing third in five straight races, Truex Jr. changed things up by finishing second on Saturday. Given his track history and given his current hot streak, he’s worth a play once again.
Hamlin For A Top 10
Hamlin got the win on Saturday and that’s capped a nice run of Top 10’s for him here. It was his second straight, fourth in his last five and seventh in his last nine. Saturday’s win was his first-ever at this track, so I’m not expecting another one to happen on Sunday, but I do think he’s a good bet to finish among the top 10.

Taking a look at his overall track record, he’s on fire. As mentioned above, there are few drivers that are doing better than Truex Jr. right now but Hamlin is one of them. Over his last six starts, he has two wins, three second-place results and a sixth. He now has six wins on the season and is having an incredible year.

Ride Elliott For Props
Chase Elliott had the pole position going into Saturday’s race and ended up with a respectable fifth-place finish. While he doesn’t have a huge track history at Dover (only has starts since 2016), most of them are very positive. In nine career starts, he has seven Top 10’s, which includes a win.

Elliott has some momentum right now as he’s finished in the Top 10 in five straight races. He’s gone fifth, first, ninth, seventh and ninth over his last five. Looking a bit further back, he’s finished 12th or better in eight straight starts. He’s on a roll right now and I’d look at him for matchup props or a Top 10.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
