Top 2022 Busch Light Clash at the Colosseum predictions

One surprise: The model is high on Joey Logano, even though he’s a 12-1 long shot in the latest NASCAR at the 2022 Coliseum odds. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Logano finished third in the Busch Clash last season at Daytona International Speedway after starting in 10th and won the 2017 event at the same venue. Logano also finished fifth among all drivers in average race position (10.7) and number of laps led (453) in 2021.

Logano has seven top-five finishes in short-track races since 2019 and 10 top-10 finishes in 16 races. That includes six races at NASCAR’s shortest track at Martinsville, where he finished in the top 10 five times. he’s a strong under-the-radar pick for Sunday.

And a huge shocker: Larson, one of the Vegas favorites at 13-2, stumbles big and barely makes the top five. There are far better values ​​in this Busch Light Clash 2022 open on the Coliseum starting grid. Larson is coming off one of the most dominant NASCAR seasons in recent memory and will no doubt be a contender of the season again in 2022. However, there are too many variables at play on Sunday.

It’s a track designed to fit a football stadium, NASCAR is launching its new next-gen cars after an offseason plagued by delivery issues due to global supply shortages, and the race will feature an open field. To make matters worse, Larson has only one top five finish in a Clash race in his career. Look for the defending champion to view this event as nothing more than a tune-up.
