Can Truex Jr. Go Back-to-Back?

Truex has been on fire of late with wins in two of his last four races overall. The driver of the no. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota has placed in the top-three in three of those four races and is now tied with Busch for the Cup Series lead with four victories.

Considering his recent history in Chicago, Truex has a good shot to go back-to-back. He has won this race in two of the last three years. Over that span, he has an average finishing position of second. Given his track history and his current form, he’s our top pick of the week.

Logano Should Do Well

Logano has flown under the radar somewhat with Truex and Busch delivering so frequently in the wins department. However, the Penske Racing headliner earned his second victory of the season in Michigan a couple of weeks ago.

He has been extremely consistent on oval courses all season. Logano has placed in the top-seven in eight of his last nine starts on oval courses. In his last 10 starts at Chicagoland, he has six top 10’s and a pair of top 5’s. He’s a good option for the top 10 prop this week.

Larson Worth a Top 10?

Larson has not had the type of year many thought he would as he has just five top 10’s in 16 starts. He had a brief stretch where he finished third (Dover), eighth (Kansas), first (All-Star Race) and first (Monster Energy Open) but he’s been shaky outside of that.

Larson is coming off two decent weeks, placing 14th at Michigan and 10th at Sonoma.

However, he is coming off two decent weeks, placing 14th at Michigan and 10th at Sonoma – his best finish in a month. He even had the pole position, so it seems like he’s got the car to do it.


Why he’s worth a look here is because he has the best average finish of any active driver at Chicago. In five races, he has three top 5’s and four top 10’s. That includes a runner-up in this race last season. I’ll take a shot with him to finish in the top 10.

Pass on Keselowski to Win Outright

Keselowski is consistently among the favorites each week but I’ll pass because he is coming off one of his worst performances of the season at Sonoma. He placed 18th and failed to lead a lap for the first time in 10 races.

He’s finished no worse than ninth here in any of his last eight appearances, so I wouldn’t fault anyone for betting him with the top 10 prop, but I’m going to pass after seeing his shaky outing last week.
