  • The Drydene 311 will start at 4 p.m. ET (NBCSN) at Dover International Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 22.
  • Due to the length of Saturday's NASCAR race Dover, track position will be key for scoring a solid finish.
  • Learn about one driver to bet for a top-10 finish in the Drydene 311.

The NASCAR Cup Series is back with another doubleheader, this time at Dover International Speedway, a highly-banked, one-mile concrete oval.

Cars will revert to the higher-horsepower, lower-downforce package that is more similar to what was run from 2017-18 at Dover than last season’s high-downforce setup.

With this in mind, I’m looking at results prior to 2019 in order to nail down my Drydene 311 (4 p.m. ET, NBCSN) bets, including this plus-money prop below.

Clint Bowyer (+130) for a Top-10 Finish

From 2017-18, Bowyer had the fifth-best driver rating and the seventh-most fast laps run over the four races at Dover, showing he was clearly among the top-10 performers in those events.

And while it’s not the perfect comp to Dover, Bowyer finished second at Bristol in May, another highly-banked concrete oval that runs the high-horsepower, low-downforce package.

In addition, Clint will roll off fourth on Saturday, which is huge at a race track where track position is so key.

And remember, because of the doubleheader, each of this weekend’s races will be just 311 miles compared to the traditional race length of 400 miles. Short races make track position even more important, and Bowyer’s top-five starting position makes him a solid bet to finish in the top 10.
