NASCAR’s Cup Series is back for its second race of the 2021 season. The circuit remains in Daytona for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 253. The race is taking place on the road course and the green flag drops at 3 p.m. ET. The race will be broadcast on FOX and air via live stream art FOX Live.
This race follows a Daytona 500 that was one for the ages. This year’s Great American Race featured a major crash early on and was delayed because of inclement weather, but drivers managed to get through it. Michael McDowell unexpectedly won his first-ever Daytona 500, and we could be in for more surprises at this weekend’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 at the Daytona Road Course.
Chase Elliott won the first-ever O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 last year and the reigning NASCAR Cup Series champ is favored (+225) to repeat at DraftKings Sportsbook. He was among the favorites to win the Daytona 500, but placed second. Martin Truex Jr. (+400) has the second-best odds while AJ Allmendinger, Ryan Blaney, and Kyle Busch are tied for third at +1200. Here’s how you can watch the race.
