The NASCAR Cup Series comes to World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Ill., Sunday for the 2022 Enjoy Illinois 300 presented by TicketSmarter. The green flag is set to drop a little after 3:30 p.m. ET (FS1). Below we analyze the 2022 Enjoy Illinois 300 odds and lines, with NASCAR picks and predictions.
Sunday’s race is scheduled for 240 laps and 300 miles at World Wide Technology Raceway. This is the debut NASCAR Cup Series event at the track just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis.
While we have no prior track history to draw from, this is a short track race, so we’ll be using drivers who are particularly strong on tracks like Bristol, Richmond, etc. … The drivers did practice Friday, getting their collective feet wet at the new track.
WWT is a flat track, so we’ll also look at drivers who are fairly decent at flats like Phoenix, as well as New Hampshire. All 4 turns are completely different, too, so it will make for a unique event.
