Top 2022 Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 400 Predictions

One surprise: The model is high on Tyler Reddick, even though he’s a 30-1 long shot in the final NASCAR 2022 at Martinsville. He is a target for anyone looking for a huge salary. Martinsville is a place where experience has generally benefited, but we have seen two first-time winners on the track in the last three Cup races there (Alex Bowman and Chase Elliott).

The 26-year-old finished eighth in the NASCAR Martinsville spring race last season and had impressive lap data, winning the fastest lap nine times and making 77 quality passes. Now the model loves that he puts on another solid run in his Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.

And a huge shocker: Chase Elliott, one of the Vegas favorites at 7-1, stumbles big and barely cracks the top 10. There are far better values ​​in the 2022 Blue-Emu Maximum Pain starting grid Relief 400. Another 26-year-old, Elliott already has 13 NASCAR Cup Series wins and won a championship in 2020, but is coming off a disappointing run last week at Richmond.

Elliott finished 14th in the first short-track race of the season in the Next-Gen car and finished 16th in his final start at Martinsville despite leading by 289 laps. He is yet to reach victory lane this year in the redesigned car and with so much parity in the sport this season, he is a risky game at 7-1 on Saturday.
