1. Where will the pole-sitter finish at the end of Stage 2?
Denny Hamlin won the pole at Charlotte, so this bet comes down to where you feel he’ll be at the end of Stage 2. Hamlin enters this Sunday 20th in the Cup Series standings with a win and two top-5 finishes.
He had a strong race in the All-Star event, finishing 2nd behind Ryan Blaney, but this doesn’t count for points. Hamlin was also good at Kansas in the last point race, as he finished P4 after failing to finish in the top-15 in five straight races.
Hamlin won at Richmond on April 3 and then went cold before a competitive race at Kansas. He had a couple of solid attempts in his last two races at Charlotte, finishing P2 and P7.
However, Hamlin didn’t finish in the top-10 in three straight races before P2 in 2020. He’s been wildly inconsistent this season, and despite notching the pole, during a long race like this Hamlin could fall back by Stage 2.
2. Which driver will have a better finish at the end of Stage 2 and what place will they finish?
Austin Cindric vs Alex Bowman is a fair matchup, but if you read my Coca-Cola 600 predictions, you know which direction this is going. I’m high on Alex Bowman in the Coca-Cola 600, so I’m opting for him to finish better at the end of Stage 2 than Cindric.
Bowman is eighth in the Cup Series standings, with a win and three top-5 performances. He’s finished in the top-10 in six of his previous seven outings, including 6th in the All-Star Race last week.
Bowman has finished in the top-10 in six of his previous seven races at Charlotte. This includes a win on May 19, 2018 in the Coca-Cola 600.
Bowman qualified 9th, while Cindric is 6th on the grid to open the race. Qualifying that closely is a wash in a race like this at Charlotte. I’m going with Bowman and 4th at the end of Stage 2.
3. Which driver will have a better finish at the end of Stage 2 and what place will they finish?
Corey Lajoie will have to finish from the back of the grid to open the Coca-Cola 600. He crashed into the wall during practice and will have to go to a backup car for Sunday.
While Daniel Suarez had a nice qualifying session, Lajoie will start P37 on the grid. Suarez will start P12 with a promising trip at Charlotte possibly in the cards for him.
Suarez 19th in the Cup Series standings with two top-5 finishes. I’m not expecting the world out of him, but he should have the upper hand on Lajoie who is 30th in the Cup Series with one top-5 performance.
Lajoie has finished in the top-15 in only one of his last eight Cup Series races, not including the All-Star Open. I’m not all that confident in Suarez, but he should be 18th to 15th and ahead of Lajoie.
4. Which manufacturer will have more cars in the top-10 of Stage 2 and how many will they have?
Toyota dominated qualifying and has done well in the Coca-Cola 600 in the past. I can’t argue with Toyota having a solid showing on Sunday evening.
Denny Hamlin, Kurt Busch, Christopher Bell, and Kyle Busch are in the top-4, all Toyota Camrys at the front of the grid for the start of the race. There are three Chevy cars in the top-10, Will Byron, Tyler Reddick, and Alex Bowman.
I’m a fan of Byron and Bowman in this race, with both on my shortlist of winners. Ryan Blaney, a Ford driver, who I’m also high on to win is just outside of the top-10 in P11. Two Fords are in the top-10 to start, Austin Cindric and Michael McDowell.
While I like Blaney and Chase Briscoe could have a promising run as well, Chevrolet likely has the advantage at the end of stage 2. In a question that might take some luck guessing the correct number, let’s go with Chevy and three drivers in the top-10. Toyota should have the most.
5. Which driver will have a better finish at the end of Stage 2 and what place will they finish?
Joey Logano will see a lot of love in the fifth Super 6 question at Charlotte, but Ross Chastain is probably the better option. Logano is +2200 to win the Coca-Cola 600 after a mixed bag of results here for him recently.
He’s finished P17, P6, P13, P2 in his previous four races in the Coca-Cola 600. Chastain is likely to get better after three performances in his career at Charlotte. He’s finished P23, P22, P24, so he’s never been involved.
Despite this fact, Chastain and his car has gotten better since then. He has two wins and seven top-5 finishes this season.
Chastain is 5th in the Cup Series standings and one of the more underrated drivers in the 2022 campaign. I’m siding with Chastain over Logano and 7th at the end of Stage 2.
6. Which driver will have the better finish at the end of the race and by how many positions?
The final question for our NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 Super Six is another matchup between two drivers. Christopher Bell and Denny Hamlin are head-to-head for the final question.
I’m leaning towards Bell over Hamlin and fade the public. Hamlin had a quality qualifying session and he’s looked good in practice. He’s on the pole for the Coca-Cola 600 and has odds of +800 to win the race.
Bell was fast in qualifying, too. He is 10th in the Cup Series standings, while Hamlin is 20th. The younger Bell doesn’t have a win, but has been more consistent and reliable.
The public will back Hamlin because of his effort in qualifying, but Bell looked good as well. I’m on Bell to finish ahead of Hamlin at the finish line and P9.
