SRX Racing Predictions: Five Flags Preview and Best Bets

Good morning, race bettors! If you're anything like me, you've probably been eagerly awaiting the day that you could bet on Tony Stewart's Superstar Racing Experience (SRX). The wait is over. The dream is real. Let's go full Degen and find value in a brand-new market.

The SRX series put on a great show last year during its first season of existence. 2022 will be comprised of a six-race schedule, all from iconic short tracks around the country. The field is made up of 12 all-stars from all different backgrounds of racing. The coolest wrinkle is that all the cars are completely identical, meaning driver performance is the only variable.

Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida will play host to the first race on Saturday night. It is a paved, high-banked, half-mile circuit. Five Flags has quite an abrasive racing surface and will reward drivers who don't abuse their tires. The main feature event will be 75 laps long, and starting position will be determined by the results of two 12-minute heats.

There is no value in taking favorite Tony Stewart (+250) to win this thing. Stewart is the defending champion of the series and won twice last year. Oddly enough, he didn't win any race on asphalt. We're looking a bit further down the card, and scooping up the big number on Ryan Newman (+1200).

Newman "retired" from the Nascar Cup series after last season. However, the big fella didn't walk away from racing altogether. He vowed to get back to his short-track racing roots, and reportedly signed on to drive in the Nascar Whelan Modified division. Newman had always been a menace on the Cup Series short-tracks, and we look for him to be in contention for the win on Saturday night.

If you ask any driver that Newman has ever raced with who the hardest guy to pass is, the unanimous answer is "Ryan Newman." He makes the rear-end of his car approximately 47 feet wide. Anyone behind him better be packing a bottle of Advil for the headache. Here's hoping there are 11 miserable drivers behind Ryan Newman on Saturday night.
