Toyota 500 NASCAR Cup Series Darlington 2 - 5/20/20 NASCAR Picks & Predictions

NASCAR had a great race on Sunday and provided the nation a break from the lack of sports happening. However, NASCAR is racing at Darlington again on Wednesday of this week and that could really be interesting as it is a middle of the week race and one that has allowed a lot of the drivers start to dial in their vehicles after running at the very technical Darlington Raceway. The race on Sunday showcased the driving skill of the veteran drivers and that will most likely continue this week as well.

Kevin Harvick is definitely one driver to keep your eye on in this second feature of the Darlington race series. However, he is not the only driver that needs to be kept an eye on. The reason that he needs to be watched is he is a veteran driver and one that has been able to drive quite a bit in the Darlington Circuit and has a lot of experience on the raceway.

Jimmy Johnson is another racer to keep your eyes on in this race. Johnson had been one of the main leaders for the race on Sunday before he wrecked in the race. Look for him to lean on that experience to get the great drive here. However, the other drivers are going to be just as familiar with the course now and that could make it a lot harder for Johnson to bring home the win or even lead nearly as much as what he did before.

Free Auto Racing Pick:

Ryan Newman +6600

Ryan Newman is back and is a strong driver. Newman had a strong performance at Darlington in the past and is one driver that should be able to continue to drive strong. Newman did decent in the return race after his horrific crash at Daytona earlier this year. With that strong return it is easy to see Newman as a favorite to win this race and build upon his strong return to the driver’s seat after his injuries in the wreck, but also from the coronavirus stoppage. Darlington Raceway 5/20/20 Winner, Ryan Newman.
