He hasn’t had a win yet this season and with six top-five finishes, it’s time to put the checkered flag in first place and put a little bit of a spin on what has been a bit of a sweet and sour season for Kyle Busch.

NASCAR GEICO 500 Predictions
The GEICO 500 race will bring many ramifications as riders make their way to the finish line inside the Talladega Speedway.
Initially, we see that there are two major candidates vying to win the GEICO 500. Brad Keselowski is a driver who if he can prevail at GEICO can immediately enter the race for the NASCAR Cup Series title.
However, Chase Elliott has risen like a lion and is the reigning champion of this race, he knows that this is the opportunity to take advantage of this circuit where he was successful in 2019 to overtake Kevin Harvick at the top of the ratings.
Elliott has also been tactical and precise, as he is high in the table with just one win, but his consistency within the top five is something that cannot be debated. That said, it’s time to open the champagne at the top of the podium and start seeing the rest of the riders down in the standings. Recommended bet Chase Elliott +600.
