Bushy McBusch 400 - 5/2/21 - NASCAR Picks & Predictions

The Bushy McBusch race here is going to take place in the Heartland in Kansas. However, the race is going to see the normal drivers coming in as the favorites to pull off the win. The main difference is the race could have several surprises that could lead to the drivers coming out different than expected.

Denny Hamlin is coming off of a very big disappointment,don’t last week. Hamlin ended up finishing in 32nd last week, but is coming in looking to build upon his success of the previous races and shake off the Talladega race result. The problem is Hamlin will not shake off the poor finish, but will not be able to bounce back far enough to win here.

Brad Keselowski ended up taking the podium last week and would like to continue to build off of that success. However, in this race Keselowski will fall back to his older ways of struggling which have kept him outside of the top ten in the four races before winning. That will happen again here and keep Keselowski off of the podium.

Free Auto Racing Pick:

Chase Elliott +800

Chase Elliott is not a name that has been mentioned much this year as Elliott has faded quite a bit in races on the year. Look for that to change in Kansas, though, as Elliott is able to finally figure out what has been wrong all year. Elliott who is favored to win the Cup Series has not won at all this year, but in this race look for Chase Elliott to finally nail the balance on the car and have pit stops that actually work instead of pushing him further back in the field. Bushy McBusch 400 Winner Prediction, Chase Elliott.
