The NASCAR Cup Series continues this Sunday with the Dixie Vodka 400. The race gets underway at 3:30 p.m. on FOX, with Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano leading the pack.

Denny Hamlin (+500) won the are last year and is the odds-on favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. He’s trailed by Kevin Harvick (+550), who won in 2014, and 2020 Cup Series champion Chase Elliott (+650). Martin Truex Jr. (+750) and Kyle Busch (+850) round out the top five. Truex last won the Dixie Vodka 400 in 2017, while Busch took the checkered flag in 2015. While there are plenty of former winners in the field, the public is choosing to back Kyle Larson the most.

Larson (+900) leads all drivers with 14% of the handle. The 28-year-old has eight top-five finishes and one win at Miami through 14 races at the venue in the Cup, Xfinity, and Camping World Truck Series. He’s cracked the top 10 in two races this year, and NASCAR fans expect him to put on his best performance of the season at one of his signature tracks. Hamlin ranks second in handle percentage (11%) and leads all drivers when it comes to the percentage of total bets (8%). Busch commands 8% of the handle, while Harvick accounts for 6%.
