Best SRX in Pensacola

Before you tune in to Saturday’s race, you need to see SportsLine’s advanced computer model choices. SportsLine’s proprietary race model simulates each race 10,000 times, taking into account a host of factors including track history and recent results.

Last season the model was all over Stewart finishing top of the SRX Series standings at Eldora. The model also called Stewart the winner in Knoxville, and now he’s signed up for Saturday’s season-opening SRX race at Five Flags Raceway. In 2021, the supermodel earned five of Kyle Larson’s wins in a historic NASCAR Cup Series season, and also went 15-10 on his head-to-head matchup predictions to start 2022. Earlier this season, Ross Chastain was high to win in Austin, giving him a much better chance of winning than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before winning as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington. Anyone who followed his lead on these games saw huge returns.

For Saturday’s race, the model predicts Francis, who won last year’s SRX summit at Lucas Oil Raceway, to struggle and fail to crack the top-10. Francis Jr. finished second in the points standings last season and earned two top-five finishes. , but the situation is not getting better for him on Saturday. Francis finished sixth in the first race of last year on another half-mile oval at Stafford Motor Speedway, which is the same length as the Pensacola track.

Francis Jr. didn’t have much success at his home circuit, the Indy Lights Series, where he finished no better than seventh in six races in the 14-car format. Most recently, he earned two 10th-place finishes at Belle Isle Park in Michigan and Road America in Wisconsin. The 24-year-old driver hasn’t led a single lap on his baseline circuit this season.

The season opener features a field full of veteran riders who won’t let go with just six races on the SRX schedule.
