2024 Iowa Corn 350 odds, lineup, predictions, time: Model shares surprising NASCAR at Iowa picks, leaderboard

The NASCAR Cup Series will head to a new track when Iowa Speedway hosts the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 on Sunday. Iowa Speedway opened in 2006 and IndyCar has run there since it opened, but some parts of the track underwent a repaving ahead of its Cup Series debut. Denny Hamlin blew his engine early in last week’s race at Sonoma, so he heads to Iowa looking for a bounce-back performance. Hamlin has been strong on short ovals, with first or second-place finishes in five of the last seven races at Richmond. Hamlin is 7-1 in the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 odds, trailing only Christopher Bell (4-1) and Kyle Larson (11-2).

Other 2024 NASCAR at Iowa contenders include Ryan Blaney (15-2), Martin Truex Jr. (10-1) and Ty Gibbs (10-1). Before making any 2024 NASCAR at Iowa predictions, be sure to see the latest 2024 Iowa Corn 350 picks from SportsLine’s proven projection model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.

McClure’s model was red-hot in 2023, nailing Martin Truex Jr.’s Clash win (20-1) as well as his win in New Hampshire (11-2), Joey Logano’s Duel win (8-1), Kyle Busch’s Fontana victory (10-1), Denny Hamlin’s triumph in Kansas (6-1) and Kyle Larson’s wins at Martinsville (6-1) and the NASCAR All-Star Race (13-2). The model correctly predicted winners in two of the playoff races as well, with Ryan Blaney scoring a 12-1 payout at Talladega and Larson winning at 9-2 in Las Vegas. 

Then it called its first winner of the 2024 season with Larson in Las Vegas for a 21-5 payout and predicted Hamlin’s wins in Bristol at 5-1 and Richmond at 17-4. It also impressively nailed five of Larson’s wins during his historic season in 2021. All told, the model has nailed a whopping 18 winners since 2021, including nine last year and three in the first seven races this season. Anyone who followed its lead on those NASCAR picks saw huge returns.

Now, the model simulated the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 10,000 times. Head to SportsLine to see the complete projected NASCAR at Iowa leaderboard.

Top 2024 Iowa Corn 350 predictions

For the 2024 Iowa Corn 350, the model is high on Ross Chastain, even though he’s a 28-1 longshot in the latest 2024 NASCAR at Iowa odds. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Chastain is an experienced driver at this track, making 14 national series starts during his career. He was disqualified after winning a Truck Series race during his last visit there in 2019, so he has likely had this race circled on his calendar.

Chastain is also coming off his first top-five finish since Las Vegas, finishing fifth at Sonoma Raceway last week. However, he has three top-10 finishes in his last four races overall, so his form has quietly been improving over the past month. He is still trying to secure a spot in the 2024 NASCAR Playoffs, making this an important race for him and his crew. 

Another massive shocker: Ryan Blaney, one of the top Vegas favorites at 15-2, fails to crack the top five. There are far better values in the 2024 Iowa Corn 350 starting lineup. The defending NASCAR Cup Series champion had a strong first month of the season and was leading the NASCAR standings after the first four races but he’s been on a downslide since.

He’s only had one top-five finish in his last 12 starts and he’s finished outside the top 10 in nine of those races. Blaney was an Xfinity Series and a Truck Series winner at Iowa previously but he’ll need to solve serious equipment issues before he can be taken seriously as a contender this weekend or any other. See which other drivers to avoid and the rest of the projected NASCAR leaderboard at SportsLine.
