New Hampshire is hosting NASCAR’s latest event Sunday, the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. Martin Truex Jr. will be starting in the pole position, with the hottest driver in racing Chase Elliott starting in the second position.
In a season full of different winners, seven of the top 10 drivers are seeking their first victories of the season. Expect to see a lot of aggressive driving the first stage.
Kyle Busch is looking to recover from a rough stretch of races. He has struggled this season, but he has the team to break out of it Sunday.
Inversely, Kevin Harvick has been scorching hot in his past four races, but he hasn’t punched through and won just yet. He’ll try to do so on a track on which he is historically excellent.
