The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Sonoma for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 on Sunday for the second road course race this season. 

Daniel Suarez is the defending champion of this event, recording his first career Cup series victory. Suarez also made history by becoming the first Mexican-born driver to win a Cup race. 

Thirteen drivers in the field have won road races in their careers, while Martin Truex Jr. has the most victories at Sonoma with three. 

Kyle Larson and Tyler Reddick are the sports betting favorites this week with each driver at +450 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

What Drivers Should you Bet on at the Toyota/Save Mart 350?

To help with your NASCAR betting, here are the drivers we are going to look to target on Sunday.

Chase Elliott 

It’s been an eventful season for Chase Elliott. First, he missed six races this season after breaking his leg while snowboarding. Then there was the drama with Denny Hamlin. At Charlotte, he intentionally crashed Hamlin, sending him into the wall. The incident drew a suspension for Elliott, forcing him to miss last week’s race in Illinois. 

The 2022 season was also a bit of an anomaly for Elliott when it came to road races. It was the first time since 2017 that he didn’t win on a road course. In 25 road races, Elliott has seven wins — the most of any active driver. 

Despite his success, he has never won at Sonoma. But it’s not as if he’s been bad here. Over his last five races here, he was in the top eight in four, and was 37th in 2019 because of engine issues. He has two eighth-place finishes, a second and a fourth during that span. 

The suspension could play to Elliott’s benefit this week, giving him more time to prepare for the race at Sonoma. Elliott could also be motivated to get back to his winning ways at road races and look to get past the suspension and missing last week’s race. 

A motivated Elliott is worth backing here, given his road racing pedigree.

Ross Chastain 

Since 2020, road courses have been the best tracks for Ross Chastain. 

Three of his best average finishes during that span have come at road courses, including Circuit of the Americas (3.0), Road America (5.5) and Sonoma (7.0). 

He took seventh in both races held at Sonoma in 2021 and 2022. The 2021 finish is considered more impressive since he had to start 29th and work his way through the field. 

At the only road course race held this year, Chastain took 12th at Circuit of the Americas, showing no dropoff at these types of tracks.
